Girls Basketball: Lowell continues to dominate AAA with rout of Washington

The Lowell girls basketball dynasty – and there’s no doubt that’s what it is – is showing no signs of ending any time soon.

The Cardinals’ quest for their seventh Academic Athletic Association title in eight years has been far from bumpy and the trend continued on Friday night with a 70-31 win over rival Washington at Kezar Pavilion.

Boys Basketball: Galileo stuns Lincoln to pull into first-place tie 

By Jeremy Balan

The public-school gyms in San Francisco are more utilitarian than they are glamorous and that makes winning on the road that much tougher in the Academic Athletic Association.

The Lincoln boys basketball team became the second league opponent in just over a week to find out how hard it is to win at Galileo on Thursday, dropping their first AAA game of the season to the Lions 49-48 in the Marina District.

Girls Basketball: Lowell shows no signs of fatigue in rout of Galileo 

By John Baker

Not only has Lowell’s girls basketball team played three games in five days, including back-to-back Academic Athletic Association tilts on Monday and Tuesday, but it has shown few signs of fatigue.

In fact, the Cardinals seem to be getting stronger the more often they play.

Tuesday night’s 61-26 victory over Galileo showed Lowell at its best. The Cardinals executed all aspects of their game with the self-confidence and energy of a well-rested squad.

Girls Basketball: Lowell pulls away after halftime to secure road win over Lincoln 

By Matthew Snyder

Since practice began in the preseason, the Lowell girls basketball team has worked tirelessly toward improving its fast-break offense.

For the first month of the season, the Cardinals focused exclusively upon pushing the ball upcourt. Even in midseason they must make a set number of fast-break layups during the first five minutes of practice or else suffer consequences.

That fast-paced base paid dividends in Monday’s Academic Athletic Association game at Lincoln, where the Cardinals beat the Mustangs at their own game by pushing the tempo on offense on the way to a 72-42 rout.

The 16 minutes didn’t come sequentially, but the Lowell boys basketball team essentially scored a single point in a half against Lincoln on Friday night.

And that’s no way to beat the Academic Athletic Association’s best team.

In the first and third quarters, the Cardinals scored just one point combined and shot 0-of-21 from the floor, allowing the Mustangs to coast to a 48-21 home win.

Girls Basketball: Lowell escapes with road win over Galileo 

By Josh Levine

The Lowell girls basketball team squeaked by Galileo with a 48-41 road win on Friday to hold on to first place in the still-early Academic Athletic Association season.

Both teams took turns holding on to the lead, but a third-quarter barrage of three clutch three-pointers from Katarina Lum turned a five-point Galileo (13-3, 1-1) advantage into a 29-28 Lowell (12-4, 2-0) lead.
