Marquee Matchups: GHC vs The Real

ship2Girls Hoops

Talk about back to back days where we have two marquee matchups in girls hoops! We’ve got two City Section powers colliding head-on when most of the City Section teams are required to sit and twiddle their thumbs. Game 1 of the West Valley League rivalry will allow the two ballclubs a ‘feeling out’ period before game two later this month (Jan.30, 2019).   Both teams are evenly matched from top to bottom, with GHC having a bit more ‘skilled’ bench players. Both show the ability to handle defensive pressure, run sets on the offensive end, and play together as a team.  That usually equals success and a lot of ‘dubs’ in the win column.

Both coaching staffs will have to be on their A-game today, showing the ability to be creative in their offensive sets, think outside the box, and get their team to raise their level of play.  Popscout feels as though one of the two will have to pull a rabbit out of their hat, in order for their team to come away with the win.

El Camino Real HC Rai Colston on Coaching Philosophy

Popscout Pick

Both teams are battle-tested and show a great level of play…at times.  If GHC can keep their field gold percentage up and shoot the lights out, then it may be lights out for ECR.  On the other hand, if ‘The Real’ can avoid stretches where they go scoreless and control the tempo of the game, success may be rewarded.

Popscout Pick:
The Real by 5 on the road.
