Good ballin’ at the Cali Summer Games today.
Cal Sparks Gold, fresh off their FILA Championship Saturday, looks amazingly strong. Their second five is almost as good as their starting five. Result: butt-whoopins. They won their first game today 71-21. Gold then beat San Antonio’s Finest in an exhibition two hours later, 71-41. And they have only one player who will be a senior in the fall.
Action from the Mission Rec Blue (Oakland, dark uniforms) vs. Fresno Stars game. Final score: MRB 70, FS 46.
Team RIENG is in the dark uniforms and So Cal Magic is in the red.
It was an extremely physical game. Final: SCM 53, TR 50.
Cal Sparks Gold guard Kari Korver (dark uniform, #26) watches the shot fall with teammate Erica McCall, just behind her.
Korver had seven three-point shots in the team’s second game a little later.
Reserve point guard Courtney Jaco, who has just dished the ball above, is an intregal part of a young CSG team. They just won the FILA National Championship Saturday for the second year in a row. This afternoon they beat the Arizona Rebels (as seen here), 71-21.
McCall, who helped the USA Basketball U16 team win a gold medal last month, is fouled.
…and she gets her free shot.
