Wolverines finish improbable year

first_imgSBVC (27-7) had its nine-game winning streak snapped and missed a chance to enter the state tournament for the third straight year. Along the way, Gerry Wright became the team’s interim coach after Derrick Pugh was relieved of his duties. Wright started the week in Texas to attend the funeral of his father, Henry Wright, who once was a flight mechanic at Norton Air Force Base. Reserve Leandre Richardson hit a three-pointer and followed with a bank shot on the next possession. The Gauchos never trailed after that point, but it wasn’t easy as the Wolverines were still effective with their pressure and managed to cut the lead to four twice in the final minute. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Wolverines didn’t have their tallest player, Devon Davis, because of a sprained ankle, Through it all, SBVC won the Foothill Conference regular season title. “When we break from the huddle, we say `1-2-3 family,”‘ said Lance Hurdle, who led all scorers with 27 points and was the Foothill Conference Most Valuable Player. “We didn’t become a team, we became a family and that’s what makes this loss so tough because the family will be breaking up. I love these guys.” Without Davis, Valley faced a height disadvantage and Saddleback prevented the Wolverines from getting inside shots. SBVC made only 4 of 20 from three-point range and couldn’t open its half-court game. “We were getting the shots we wanted, but the shots weren’t falling” said Wright, who has applied for the full-time coaching position. “I think we became impatient and missed some layups.” Saddleback scored nine consecutive points to take a 58-48 advantage with 6:26 remaining in the game. Brandon James, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, scored on an offensive rebound and power forward Gerard Anderson had a dunk after a Valley turnover. center_img SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team endured difficult times this season, and Saturday night’s 72-68 loss to Saddleback in the Southern California junior college playoffs was another example of how the team shared strength through the hardships. Saddleback (25-7) overcame Valley’s pressure defense to advance to the eight-team state tournament that begins Thursday in Fresno. last_img
