    Did a scouting report via Alemany vs St Johns Bosco game.

    Alemany strengths:
    – Very quick guards that can get to the basket
    – Team loves to pass, especially for an open 3pt shot.
    – Coleman is a very polished scorer (Assignment: Herman Pratt, Petroni, or Fox).
    – Press, forced alot of SJB turnovers.

    Alemany weaknesses:
    – Rebounding (Taylor Johns and Fox are going to have a field day).
    – Gambles alot of press.
    – No answer for Johns.
    – Cannot stop guards from getting into paint + no inside presence to challenge shots.

    Game breakdown: If Alemany’s press is running on all cylinders, SH could have a 1st quarter WCAL playoff vs Serra repeat. They cannot afford to turn the ballover via Alemany press. Do not let Johns or Fox get into foul trouble by guarding Coleman. They dont have much of a scoring threat outside of him since other player’s points are off of turnovers from press. I say let Coleman get his points and dont let anyone else beat you. If SH can get 10 bench points, I think this is a win (6 Otis, 4 O’Reilly).

    Prediction: SH 64, Alemany 56.

      Stealing my thunder! That’s going to be the last story in our series of features, a scouting report on Alemany.

      • Ari Gold says:

        Whatever you write is going to be far more precise and credible than my analysis. I only watched the 1st quarter of the SJB-Alemany game but I saw enough to figure out SH is not going to be outmatched on Saturday. Alemany has no dominant big man to go to. In virtually all the SH losses this year, they bowed down to Mitty three times, Serra once because of the bigs. Having a 6’8 Gordon and a beefy 6’4 Caruso helps. Great job in advanced for a week full of great sports journalism.

    I hope Balboa players and their coaches feel good about themselves for beating Jordan 36-0. Very macho of them.

    • jbalan says:

      I understood when people were frustrated with the blowout basketball scores, but there’s not much you can do in baseball. I don’t think you can tell the hitters to go up there and not hit and just take three strikes.

      Balboa coach Tom Pontino emailed the score in and said that there were 13 Jordan errors, they walked 11 players and hit two Balboa players. They stopped advancing runners on wild pitches and passed balls in the first inning.

      The scores are discouraging, but specifically in this case, I don’t think the teams or coaches should be scolded.

      • reader says:

        I know there is only so much you can do against a far inferior team, but 36 runs in 4 innings seems beyond that. How long did Balboa’s starters play? Washington put up 19 or 20 against Jordan, when I am sure they could have easily doubled that number.

        Jeremy, have you spoken with the coaches at Jordan, or O’Connell, or any of the other teams that routinely get mercy ruled? I’m interested what the mood is like on those teams that often lose by 20. Is it even worth playing at the varsity level for them?

        • jbalan says:

          I have had conversations with Wallenberg’s old head coach, who is now at San Rafael. No one likes the situation.

          I think a solution could be a set of two leagues in the San Francisco Section, specifically in baseball, rather than two divisions in the same league. It would give the lower league teams a championship to play for. They’d certainly get more coverage from us if they played in their own league and they’d all be better games than these.

          Just a thought.

  4. Jm says:

    I think these teams should make jv level teams just saying

  5. afan says:

    I was at the Balboa vs. Jordan game. The Balboa coaches weren’t happy with the situation either, the mercy rule requires them to play through the 5th inning, unless the umpires call it earlier, which they did. There wasn’t anyting that Balboa could do to end the game sooner, the starters came out in the 3rd inning. But it was sad when the Jordan coaches stopped coaching their team after awhile; it wasn’t fun to watch. Even when Balboa was losing badly to Clayton Valley (17-0), their coaches stayed in the game and kept on coaching the kids.
