MVAL boys basketball title scenarios

As we enter the final weekend of regular-season competition, the Mission Valley Athletic League boys basketball title chase is far from over. Moreau Catholic (12-1 in MVAL action) has a one-game lead over Newark Memorial (11-2 MVAL) and James Logan (11-2 MVAL).

If Moreau Catholic defeats Newark Memorial tomorrow, the Mariners will clinch the outright league title. But if Newark Memorial wins … things will get a little complicated.

If Newark Memorial and James Logan (which plays Mission San Jose) win on Friday, there will be a three-way tie for the MVAL title. MVAL Commissioner Tom Breen confirmed to me today that in that scenario, the three teams would be tri-MVAL champions.

But there is still the matter of which team would get the league’s automatic berth into the North Coast Section playoffs, so the league’s tiebreaking system would come into play.

The first tiebreaker is head-to-head results. Since Moreau Catholic would have lost to Newark Memorial twice, Newark Memorial has lost twice to James Logan, and James Logan has lost twice to Moreau Catholic, they would all cancel each other out.

The second tiebreaker is a team’s record against the rest of the league. Again, there would still be a three-way tie.

Breen said that in that case, there would be a chip draw on Saturday to decide which team gets the league’s NCS automatic berth.

If this occurs, I will try to get you more information on this.

East Bay high school basketball scores for Friday, Feb. 5

Crunch time as we have just 16 days left in the regular season. All leagues playing except for a portion of the TCAL and BCL, which had some Thursday games. Several league title pictures are contentious, including the MVAL, where tonight Moreau Catholic and star Oscar Frayer (below, in a game with Newark Memorial) will meet James Logan and try to unravel a three-way tie for the league lead those teams share with Newark Memorial.

Moreau Catholic's Oscar Frayer (21) grabs the rebound against Newark Memorial's Kevin Kahriman (35) in the fourth quarter of their high school basketball game in Newark, Calif., on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016. Newark Memorial beat Moreau Catholic 73-69. (Anda Chu/Bay Area News Group)

Michigan football coaches comment on De La Salle’s Devin Asiasi

Here are a couple quotes from Michigan football coaches on mgoblue.com regarding De La Salle star Devin Asiasi, who signed with the Wolverines on Wednesday:

Offensive coordinator Tim Drevno said “Talk about an explosive player, Devin is a very explosive guy. We have had a great string of tight ends at Stanford and now here at Michigan and he’s right that at the top.”

Tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said “As a player, he is tenacious, violent and physically bludgeons his opponents. He also has unusual quickness, ball skills and elusiveness for an athlete of his size.”
