Throughout the season, it’s critical that we, as a team, look at making adjustments that will benefit our ball-club going forward. We’re not playing up to par. We hit a losing skid that just won’t let up. Or we can’t get over the hump and win on a big stage. Sometimes players are asked to give up a few minutes or sometimes asked to move to a different position. Sometimes coaches have to bite the bullet and give a kid a bit more rope. El Camino Real proved Thursday night that going back to the drawing board is a good thing.
The Conquistadors defeated Harvard Westlake 53-49 January 4, 2018, avenging an early season loss during the 2017 Redondo Union Battle @ the Beach Tourney. The coaching staff did a masterful job at utilizing their strengths against Harvard Westlake weaknesses, drawing up several plays that allowed El Camino to execute and look special during stretches of the game. It was the play of Sr. Guard Kianna Hamilton-Fisher that was the driving force behind the win. Having slid this young lady to the PG position this year was a beautiful move on the part of El Camino Real and their coaching staff. That’s paid huge dividends in the make up of their ball club and how other clubs approach them defensively. Although Kianna is still learning and maturing at the PG position, she puts her team in best case scenarios with her size, energy, athleticism, and high basketball IQ. A few clips of both teams performance last night.
