: : : : : : : : Caught up on all of the happenings over the last week. Read about some great games, players to watch and major upsets. Probably most notable game of the week was the Windward vs Bishop Montgomery matchup at the Battle of the Beach. BM guards stunned Windward to move past them and defeat Etiwanda. Windward barely skated by Redondo for the 3rd place finish. Windward was without their star player.
: : : : : : : : Mater Dei is proud of their championship vs D2 St Anthony at the Downey Classic. Many of the open division contenders competed at the Battle of the Beach or Mark Keppel tournaments. Why Mater Dei chooses to compete at this low level tournament is beyond me.
: : : : : : : : Anyone else watch any other great games?
: : : : : : : So Osborne didn't play against Redondo but did on the semi against BM?
: : : : : : : Any info on all tournament selections and MVP?
: : : : : : Windward had their entire squad including Osborne in their loss to BM. Heard that she twisted her ankle in the final seconds of game and sat out during the Redondo game. Thatís 20 plus points left on the bench for Windward which is why the Redondo game was so close. With Osborne, I think it wouldnít have been a game. Windward needs her to run the offense - no solid ball handlers other than her.
: : : : : We like playing in at least one weak tournament so we can say we won one tourney
: : : : Coach K is out recovering from surgery, I'm sure he didn't trust his teams success to that big head midget who keeps trying to yell over Coach K during the games. Dude really think he did something in Coaches absence. He is not a good assistant coach and def couldn't cut it as a travel ball Coach. I can see why Coach K put them in such a weak tournament.
: : : That is the biggest BS Iíve ever heard in my life. Heís out for surgery so canít be in a good tournament??? If youíre THAT good it shouldnít matter. Kevin is hiding! Heís been hiding for years. My daughter graduated a few years ago and even then he was in WEAK tournaments! MD can be proud of their league championships but they havenít done ANYTHING else! So sad! They won the DOWNEY tournament LOL WOW ... cmon Kevin!
: : Agree. Battle at the Beach always has the best teams competing and Iíve never seen Mater Dei at this tournament. They like to pad their record with easy wins and celebrate victories over D3 schools. Embarrassing. Nonetheless, they will be playing in the Troy tournament next week that also has had Etiwanda and Bishop Montgomery. That will be the true test.
: Big fish in small pond. They will get smacked on in the Open division and wouldnít be surprised if they didnít win a D1 title either. Great job, coach K. Keep up the great work!
So many HATERS. Why don't ANY OF YOU become a Coach, then you can decide how you want to spread your 3-5 Tourneys: So many Coaches/Schools do different things including scheduling "stayover" Tourneys for more than just Basketball type experiences for the kids. Emphasis "Kids" and "the Experience". Or like Mater Dei, they do some of both, a "warm up tourney" plus travel/elite tourney such as the Nike TOC. 1 could say it is the best tourney to be in to face Elite competition that HS has to offer.
