How good is Mack…

Read this quote from the Fresno Bee from the coach of a team that the McClymonds boys basketball team beat in the Clovis Elks Holiday Classic 65-50.

“It was a win-win for us,” Sunnyside coach Mark Beebe said. “Nobody expected us to win against a team ranked in the state and nation. We’re just a good — hopefully, maybe — somewhat excellent local team.”

According to the story, Sunnyside (11-3) has its best team in years and that result was actually the closest of any games Mack has played in the tournament. Talk about a humbling quote about your own team “just a good — hopefully, maybe — somewhat excellent local team.” Mack faced Hanford in the finals tonight and I’ll post the result when I get it.

    When DP is in foul trouble, they are probably the 5th best team in the Bay Area…with him, they are the best.

    True, but the same could be said about a lot of teams without their best player.
