: Tyler Powell and Snookey Wigington too much for Providence. Too many turnovers and sloppy play. Ribet led at the half by 16 as Providence only managed 3 points in the second quarter. Providence managed to cut Ribet's lead to just 4 in the 4th quarter, but a couple of turnovers and clock pressure forced Providence to resort to the foul game, which just didn't quite work as Ribet pulled away at the end.
: Ultimately Ribet was bigger, faster and shot the ball much better than Providence today. Congratulations to Ribet, CIF-SS Division 4A champions and to runner-up Providence HS of Burbank.
i am NOT a fan or follower of Ribet but ive read things about their program and school recently. I thought i read (correct me if im wrong) that the school was in trouble with low enrollment and that they were seriously thinking of closing at one point? I also remember reading about their basketball recruits and how they were getting players outside of the us? Wasnt there some kind of controversy with them in that regard? My point is if any of that is true, then its even more impressive that they ended up winning their section/division with so many distractions. Good job - and props to Providence for their good season and efforts.
