After what looked like a competetive start, Ocean View started striding away from the Trojans. Can they keep it up?
After the ridiculous and pointless game yesterday, OV (11-3) looks to suit up against Lutheran High School (8-6) (LaVerne, California).
Lutheran is coming off of a similar game in which they destroyed La Sierra Academy 125-32, Ocean View’s defense topped that score by only allowing 15 points, and 2 in one quarter. Questions about the strength of schedule for Lutheran end by taking a look at each of their losses; Centennial and Leuzinger top the in state losses for the Trojans. Both games were closely contested, which is something to be concerned about tonight.
The Trojans are led by Grant Jerrett, a 6’8” Forward who has been compared to Bill Walton (By the way, he’s only a sophomore). Jerrett averages 19.3 points per game, and 11.4 boards per game. Jerrett will really be able to gauge the defense that OV has in the post and give everyone a good view of what things can look like when the postseason rolls around.
If there were any superior guards to match up with our wings, this could be a bad matchup for the Hawks, but with the defense clicking, and the offense (from what I’ve seen in 8 minutes) rolling, it shouldn’t be too hairy.
Ocean View: 74
This is pretty rediculous, Ocean View has just overwhelmed Westminster, not letting them score until there was 21 seconds left in the quarter. I’m going to sleep now
While it has basically been exclusive for a while, the ucla13usc9 Sports Blog will be strictly confined to High School Sports starting today, the remainder of the college posts will be put up here when all the kinks are worked out. Hope you enjoy the changes!
The rally today got the entire school pumped up for the game tonight and I expect a few more people to come out to the gym tonight for the semis.
Alright, so the Semis are tonight, and Ocean View’s opponent, Long Beach Jordan is thinking upset. If “J-Town” (wait, isn’t it L town, or LB Town?) has any chance at keeping it close, they’ll need Raynard Tyler, their star senior guard to have a legendary game. Tyler has had multiple 20+ point games this year, and his teammates Jesse Jones and Samuel Jones to step up as well.
On the other side of the court, Anthony Brown, Avery Johnson, and Billy Keller are going to have quite an easy night. The Panthers have given up 20+ to guards in each of their tournament games, and it seems like it would be similar suit tonight.
Keep your eye on Ryan Okwudibonye, he had his best game of the season so far last time around, and if he keeps it up, he might make his case for some sort of accolade later on in the year.
