No weaknesses

After watching Pinole Valley’s girls basketball team dismantle a good Hercules squad 71-40 on Tuesday, it appears that the Spartans have no weaknesses. DeNesha Stallworth and Marnique Arnold dominated the boards, Jaleesa Ross ran the offense expertly and Mishan Schexnayder was deadly from beyond the three-point arc. Defensively, the Spartans consistently caused havoc and never let the Titans get their offense rolling. This is the best Pinole Valley girls basketball team that I’ve seen in my years with the Times, and that’s saying something considering what the Spartans have achieved in the past few seasons.
