Basketball 101: Finishing

Fairfax was able to defeat John Muir high school and win the Maranatha Rose City Classic.  Tourney MVP Ethan Anderson, seen here in earlier round play, has developed that killer instinct needed to finish ballgames and catapult his game to the next level.  Image by PopScout.

Fairfax defeated John Muir High school by a score of  59-48 to capture the title of the Maranatha Rose City Classic Tourney.  Their first under new Head Coach Steve Baik.  It was a good way to start the 2016-17 campaign and gives you an idea of where your club stands.  Some might say that the competition this year  during pool play wasn’t up to par, but winning a championship in the 14 annual Rose City Classic always gives you that edge –  as you now take on much steeper competition and tournaments ahead.

Coach Baik  –  and his coaching staff – win their first tourney title with him calling the shots, now that he has moved on from Chino Hills, after going undefeated last season. He still hasn’t lost a regular season game in a while as Fairfax went 4-0 during tournament play.  Image by PopScout.

4th Quarter semifinal play as Fairfax takes on a pesky Pasadena team who were missing their top player Bryce Hamilton due to an ankle injury suffered from the previous game.  His counterpart, Darius Brown II showed up and showed out, almost single-handedly winning the game for his team.  Fairfax showed why they will be a contender for City Section supremacy – showing the ability to finish games when it counts. Let’s hope all is well and everyone is at full strength as the season progresses.
