After winning the L.A. Valley Russell Classic over the weekend, which included a win over powerhouse San Bernardino Valley, the Ventura College women's basketball team (11-2) rose two spots to No. 2 in both the state and regional polls.

The Moorpark College women's basketball team (8-2) used its first Moorpark College Classic championship, which included come-from-behind wins over Citrus and Antelope Valley, to vault six spots to No. 7 in Southern California and debut at No. 18 in the state poll.

There are FIVE -- count them, FIVE -- WSC North teams the SoCal Top 15.

Mircetic, LaFountain proclaim Pirates "ready to play"

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
 

After a 55-minute shootaround, the team's final on-court preparations ahead of tonight's state Final Four in Sacramento, both head coach Ned Mircetic and star forward Destinee LaFountain proclaimed the Ventura College women's basketball team "ready to play" Friday morning

"It went well," said Mircetic. "We got out of the hotel. We got some good shots up. We got in everything that we wanted and did it efficiently.

"We're ready to play."

Asked about the on-campus venue, the Consumnes River College Athletic Center, Mircetic replied that only the Pirates' home venue would be better.

"It's very nice, I love it," said Mircetic. "This is a great site."

The consensus among the players was positive, although sophomore Blayke Hudson mentioned that the balls seemed "really bouncy."

Sophomore point guard Rebecca Griffin pointed out that the venue will be the same for both teams.

"We could be playing outside and we'd still have to give it our all," said Griffin.

All four semifinals were asked to make a brief statement about their seasons at Thursday night's CCCWBCA banquet.

Stephanie Ramirez, the sophomore captain of the Ventura College women's basketball team, was chosen by her team.

The Rio Mesa High product was diplomatic in her speech in front of the three opposing teams.

"We're going to do our best and hope for the best," said Ramirez.

After the banquet, Ramirez was asked about being up on the spot.

"I had to keep it classy and respectful," said Ramirez.

With all four teams mingling in a small meeting room, there is often a bit of gamesmanship at the event.

"I know everyone is going to be nice, but we're in business mode," said sophomore Regan Mew. "All four teams were staring each other down."

"I felt a little tension in there," said sophomore Blayke Hudson. "It made me laugh."

As the CCCWBCA president, Consumnes River head coach Coral Sage served as moderator of the night's events. Before the night was through, she made sure to take a friendly dig at Ventura by making sure to mention that, as a player, she led her Sierra team over the Pirates in the 1999 state championship game.

The comment prompted laughter and boos from different corners of the room. It seemed to perk up the Ventura players.

"We want to win this year and back coach up," said Hudson.

Sophomore Destinee LaFountain didn't mind the atmosphere. The state co-Player of the Year was so focused on Friday's semifinal that she didn't realize her name was misspelled "LaFountaine" on her All-State certificate.

"All the talking is going to be done on the court," said LaFountain. "I just can't wait to play."

Advice from a new Hall of Famer

The California Community College Women's Basketball Coaches Association's banquet is held annually the night before the state championships to honor the participating teams.

It also honors the CCCWBCA Hall-of-Fame class. This year, the coaches inducted Los Angeles Valley players Ruth Aguilar Seja '89 and Sylvia Casteneda '90, as well as Cypress player Sara Works '95.

Aguilar Seja, the former L.A. Valley coach, now works in the neonatal intensive care unit at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

Thursday night, the 1989 state co-Player of the Year offered perhaps the best advice for the four teams on Final Four eve.

"Enjoy this," said Aguilar Seja on the dais, her young daughter at her side. "It's going to go one of the best times of your life."

A glimpse into the future

It was just a practice exercise, but men's and women's coaches both produced a preliminary projection of next week's Southern California regional playoff seedings over the weekend.

The men's coaches association was asked to use the seeding criteria to rank the final regional poll of the season. The Ventura College men's basketball team (17-11) was ranked No. 13 with a quarterfinal visit to No. 4 San Bernardino Valley on tap. WSC North foes Cuesta (22-7) and Hancock (20-9) were No. 8 and No. 14, respectively. San Francisco (25-2) and Citrus (24-1), who contested last year's state final, were the top seeds in the North and South, respectively.

Click the jump for this week's men's polls.

When one local coach calculated the women's seeding, No. 1-ranked Ventura, which has been recently edged out for the top seed by Mount San Antonio (2009) and Fullerton (2010) despite overall record and head-to-head advantages, barely nipped No. 2 Mount SAC for the top seed on a tiebreaker, despite giving the No. 2 Mounties and No. 3 San Bernardino Valley four of their six combined losses this season.

Moorpark was No. 13, only two slots from hosting a first-round game Wednesday rather than earning a bye to the weekend's quarterfinals.

With plenty of jockeying for position to go with a week's worth of games to add to the database, it looks like Saturday's WSC North title-decider between Moorpark and host Ventura will have even more riding on it.

VC women still No. 1, MC women slip a spot

The Ventura College women's basketball team is No. 1 in both Southern California and the state for the 10th straight week.

After picking up a state first-place vote last week, it appears 26-1 Ventura lost it to 24-3 Foothill this week. Foothill and San Francisco are the only two teams in the Top 7 the Pirates have yet to beat.

VC is 6-0 against the state Top 7 and 5-0 against the SoCal Top 4.

Meanwhile, Moorpark, despite another two-win week, slipped one spot in the regional poll for the second straight week to No. 14. Although the Raiders (15-8) seem on the brink of wrapping up a postseason place by winning seven of their last eight.

Last week's WSC North showdown had little affect on the state and regional polls.

Despite grinding out two tough road wins last week, a 4-point win at Moorpark and a 3-point win at Cuesta, Ventura (24-1) still sits atop both the Southern California regional and state polls. The Pirates actually picked up a first-place vote in the state poll.

Despite suffering only one loss, to the No. 1-ranked team in the state, over its last seven games, Moorpark (14-8) actually slipped one spot to No. 13 in SoCal.

Ventura is also No. 1 in the state poll. Although it's no longer unanimous because two North voters switched to Mt. SAC this week, despite the Mounties two losses coming at the Pirates' hands.

Torres-Reyes to be inducted

The festivities in Fresno will tip off a night early for Ventura, as former star Marina Torres-Reyes, who led the Pirates to their first perfect season in 1995-96 will be inducted into the California Community College Women's Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame.

That her school is on the cusp of repeating the accomplishment of her and her teammates only makes the honor more special for Torres-Reyes.

"Can you imagine?" asked Torres-Reyes Sunday. "It's very exciting. I can imagine how they feel. It's amazing.

"In those days... I was just focused on the basketball. It was very hard. But we did it. It's like a dream. I still cannot believe it."

The 1995-96 state co-Player of the Year, Torres-Reyes amassed 13 steals in the state semifinal win and 14 steals in the 69-62 state final win over previously undefeated Saddleback.
