REDLANDS, CA – Call it what you may: A barrage of long-range bombs, exceptional outside shooting, a rain of treys.

Whatever the adage, the Redlands East Valley Wildcats put on an outside shooting exhibition in defeating the Yucaipa Thunderbirds, 94-73, in a key Citrus Belt League boy’s basketball game, Wednesday, at Redlands East Valley High School.

“They had nine treys in the first half and continued shooting well in the second,” said Yucaipa coach, Pat McLeod. “That’s the most points we’ve given up all year. We like to keep our games in the 60s, but they shot the ball really well, so you’ve got to give them credit.”

Yucaipa holds off Fontana A.B. Miller for crucial Citrus Belt League victory

YUCAIPA, CA – Minutes before tip off, Yucaipa boy’s basketball coach, Pat McLeod, agreed that yes, Fontana A.B. Miller poses a problem. They are quick, aggressive, and they like to press.

And those three defensive ingredients have given the Thunderbirds problems. But on this night Yucaipa handled all that the Rebels threw at them – including a full court press full of pressure, full of intensity.

And when the final buzzer sounded, Yucaipa had held off a talented A.B. Miller team, 73-61, Tuesday at Yucaipa High School in yet another crucial Citrus Belt League game.

“We knew they are very aggressive, very quick, and like to press,” McLeod said. “That has been our Achilles heal in the last couple of our losses.”

Yucaipa was fresh off the memory of a disappointing 53-52 loss to Redlands East Valley in which critical turnovers cost the Thunderbirds a chance at victory.

And this rebound from that loss was crucial. For the second half of league play begins tonight with the Thunderbirds traveling to Redlands to take on the second-place Terriers (5-2 CBL, 15-4).

And battling it out for third place are Yucaipa, A.B. Miller, and Redlands East Valley deadlocked with 4-3 records. A spot that assures entrance into the CIF playoffs come mid-February.

SECOND PLACE POSSIBLE
But second place isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. Redlands has a precarious hold on second after losses to league-leading Eisenhower (7-0, 16-5) and REV (4-3, 12-8).

And Yucaipa (4-3 CBL, 10-9 overall) seemed to play with an urgency that said they fully understand that their league destiny was in their control.

The Thunderbirds came out at tip off and within seconds Tyler McGrand (11 points) buried his first of three, three-pointers. Miller immediately began pressing, but Yucaipa responded by getting the ball inbounds and then hitting a guard or forward racing down the sidelines, or launching deep passes over the top to beat the press.

“We knew they run a really tough press,” said Yucaipa guard, Cole Hauso, 3 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds. “So we practiced a press break to beat it. We needed to protect the ball. We know that’s why we lost to REV. Cutting down on the turnovers was a big key for us.”

Defense leads Summit past Redlands East Valley in Kiwanis tournament

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

SAN BERNARDINO – A big part of Redlands East Valley’s offense comes from behind the three-point arc. If the Wildcats are hitting the three’s – especially guard Terrell Todd – they are tough to stop in their run-and-gun offense.

But the Summit Sky Hawks hounded Todd and held him to just one three-pointer and nine for the entire team as the Sky Hawks pulled out a 71-64 victory in the quarterfinals of the 52nd Annual San Bernardino Kiwanis Tournament, Monday.

“We played them a couple of weeks ago,” said Sky Hawks junior guard and wing, Quinton Lilley. “He (Todd) killed us then (Todd made 5 three-pointers and scored 22 points in a Sky Hawks, 61-54, victory in the Inland Empire Classic on Dec. 18.), but we tried to make it more difficult for him tonight. We knew if we could take away their three’s that we would have a good chance to win.”

The Fontana A.B. Miller and Redlands East Valley “Hit”

Monday, November 9th, 2009

YUCAIPA, CA – I didn’t see it, but I heard it. That hard-hitting whack when body crashes into body, shoulder pad slams into shoulder pad, and helmet cracks helmet.

Friday night I covered a high school football game. It’s what I’ve been doing for the past 16 years.

And this game between the Fontana A.B. Miller Rebels and Redlands East Valley Wildcats had a lot at stake: The championship of the Citrus Belt League.

So kids were flying at each other. The intensity was at fever pitch. The hitting reached a ferocious level.

Quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers were hunted down by 220-pound linebackers and defensive backs with Gazelle-like speed. And when they caught them, they hurled them to the ground like Siberian Tigers stalking and ripping into wild boar.

REDLANDS, CA – There would be no celebrating, and there would be no repeat Citrus Belt League championship for the Fontana A.B. Miller Rebels football team.

The undefeated (9-0, 6-0 CBL) Redlands East Valley Wildcats saw to that. But the Wildcats breathed a huge sigh of relief when the game ended and they escaped with a 28-20 victory last Friday at the University of Redlands.

For the Rebels, the loss was especially agonizing and follows a 28-27 loss to he Redlands Terriers last Friday.

“Two weeks in a row we should have won games we didn’t,” said Rebels’ Head Coach, Jeff Strycula. “We are disappointed and we’re not very happy.”
