: : : : : : : : : : : Saw a good game tonight between Canyon and Valencia. Good back and forth battle with Valencia getting the win on a Konrad shot at the buzzer. Just glad no one had to cheat to win the game like Harvard-Westlake did the other night.
: : : : : : : : : : Great first sentence! Terrible second sentence! Nice to know you give credit to the players and then to know you're a sore loser. Give credit to your girls for winning the game and losing the game.
: : : : : : : : : Terrible second sentence? What wrong with my second sentence? You mean my third? All I am do is stir up controversy. But if I am a Millikan fan then what the hell was I doing up at Canyon Country? I was just happy that two teams played their best and didn't have to resort to some form of cheating.
: : : : : : : : : Was in the stands to watch this game as well. Didn't have a favorite in the game. Just wanted to watch a good one. And boy it was very entertaining. Many times the lead changed back and forth between both teams. I think they play each other one more time. All I got to say after watching this game was, "Wow!"
: : : : : : : This was a decent game, no more. Neither team is Elite. People want to say Valencia is open. NOT NOT NOT NOT CLOSE. One decent player, the rest marginal. You don't beat Canyon by 1 and 2 and call yourself Elite. Yes you beat an Alemany team early that wasn't the same as now but Valencia is a pretender, not a contender.
: : : : : :
: : : : : : Valencia is an Open team. No doubt. They can't win Open championship, but they are going to win the rest of their regular season games and be like a 12 seed in Open. Regardless of how good you may think they are, there are not 16 teams better than them.
: : : : : : And as for a close game vs. Canyon - most rivalry games are close when both teams have talent. And these girls all mostly grew up playing together or against each other.
: : : : : : As for Canyon - where are the people who thought Canyon was an Open team? I laughed then and I laugh now.
: : : : : : Bottom line - they have not won a big game since....when? They just haven't. They need to learn how to win those games. Next year they will stomp Valencia, but only because Konrad & Co. will graduate.
: : : : : : I'm sure it was an entertaining game and will be again when they play in a couple weeks.
: : : : : :Valencia is an Elite team with Konrad who is the best baller in the SCV area.
: : : : : : Why wait to stomp Valencia next year...HAHAHA! They should be stomping them now with the great team that Valencia is. I guess that's the only way to boost Canyon's egos for next year. Fact is Canyon can't handle Valencia period!
: : : : : : : Everyone already knows that Konrad is the best in SCV. She is a good player, but how many times does that need to be repeated on these posts? We never hear anyone give credit to the other players that helped contribute to that win. Give credit to those other girls that worked hard during this game. You need more that just 1 player to make a win! I had to comment.
: : I agree the rest of the team needs some props too.
: : My daughter has played against Valencia several times in the last few years (summer/fall/tourneys/regular season) and while Konrad is sooooo good - what sets Valencia apart is their teamwork.
: : They pass like crazy - sometimes to their detriment - to get other players an open shot. Honnaker is a great shooter and is a tough player who never backs down. Ane is solid and does a little bit of everything well. Jordan does the dirty work that often goes unnoticed. And the PG Cheyanne (last name to hard to spell LOL) is one of the best around - excellent shooter and decision maker.
: : So props to them all. Will miss watching them all play together next year - won't miss losing to them all the time. LOL
: :What about giving Mike some credit, the team won't be as great as they're without Mike's strategies and play calling. They are league champions year after year because of him. These girls are skilled as they're and going to D1 schools because of him. props to him. Best coach in SCV and SFV!
I got nothing against the guy, but he is average at best.
The only D1 girl is Konrad, which is because of her hard work and her work with her travel team.
Valencia coach makes questionable in-game decisions and his substitutions are almost non-existent. I get the bench is thin - but you need to give these girls a break to keep them fresh.
Especially Konrad that has to do so much on both ends of the court and the boards. A little breather now and then would do wonders to keep her performance at peak level. Goes for the other starters too.
