Struggles continue for Logan hoops
By Jeff Weisinger
Maybe it's still too early to tell if the 2010-11 season for the James Logan boys basketball team is a disaster or just a slow start and strong finish.
Wednesday's 76-53 loss against Castlemont High in Oakland may fit in the equation of a disaster.
The loss by the Colts is Logan's fourth loss in their last five games, this downward spiral, however, comes after Logan began the season winning four of their first five.
Senior Larry Jones scored a game high 12 points for the Colts who for three quarters stayed in the game, even firing back with an 18 point third quarter after trailing by four, 28-24 at halftime. However, Castlemont kept momentum throughout the game, closing strong in the fourth, outscoring Logan 23-14 in the final frame. Logan will host Castro Valley, Thursday, Dec. 23.
Washington 52, Galileo 28
Trying to claw back from a slow start to the year, the Washington Huskies won their second straight game Wednesday night, manhandling Galileo High 52-28 at home.
The 24 point victory comes just days after the Huskies defeated Mt. Eden by a point. Washington takes on Liberty High Thurs., Dec. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Kennedy 75, Granada 64
The Kennedy Titans, one of the MVAL's best in the early going of the season, kept their streak alive after their 75-64 win over Granada High on Wednesday.
Chris Murry led the rally for the Titans with his 31 points on the night, as Kennedy trailed to Granada 32-29 at halftime. Kennedy came out in the third quarter on fire, outscoring Granada 25-18 in the quarter. The Titans will look to continue their role on Tuesday against Martinez's Alhambra High school at 7:30 p.m.
Irvington 77, Richmond 57
The Irvington Vikings took care of a struggling Richmond High team in the VIkes 77-57 win. Irvington held the lead throughout the entire game, closing strong with a fourth quarter where they outscored Richmond 17-8 to seal the win.
The Vikings improve their record to 3-5 with the big win before MVAL play begins in early January.
