Redlands women in a crunch

first_imgUniversity of Redlands women’s basketball coach Jim Ducey can only wonder what would have happened if his Bulldogs had gotten off to a better start. Redlands (13-7, 6-4) lost its first four Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference games, three by a combined margin of 11 points. It has bounced back to win its last six, but that might be too little too late with just four games remaining. Johnson, a senior from San Antonio, led the Coyotes to an 8-1 mark in the month. He is averaging 13.6 points and 4.5 rebounds. He also has 29 steals, 26 assists and 13 blocked shots. Snyder, of Norco, has started all 21 games. The senior is the second-leading rebounder (5.5 rpg) and one of the team’s defensive standouts. Cal State San Bernardino junior Jennifer Joy has been named Penn/CCAA women’s tennis player of the week. Joy, of Palm Desert, won both her singles matches last week, one against Master’s College and one against Hope International. She and doubles partner Leslie Horn split their matches. Joy, the regining CCAA Player of the Year, has 29 career singles wins, one shy of the school record held by her coach, Heather Lehman Langley. She has a chance to tie that record Friday in a match against Cal State Bakersfield. UC Riverside sophomore forward Amber Cox has been named Big West co-player of the week. She averaged 16.5 points, 7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 blocks in two games last week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

As expected, the Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team dropped to second in the Division II West Region rankings released Wednesday. Humboldt State (18-3, 13-3) moved into the top spot while the Coyotes (16-5, 12-4) fell to second after a loss to Cal Poly Pomona. The Broncos (15-6, 11-5) are third. The team that finishes first typically is awarded hosting rights for the postseason tournament. The Coyotes have six games left, including road games this weekend at Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus, both bottom-tier teams in the conference. Meanwhile, the Cal State San Bernardino women moved from eighth to sixth after three wins in five days. The Coyotes (15-6, 11-5) have four wins over teams in the top 10, including one over No. 1 UC San Diego. They will play at No. 2 Chico State on Friday. There are six CCAA teams among the region’s top nine. Cal State San Bernardino basketball players Ivan Johnson and Denise Snyder have been named athletes of the month for January by the Coyotes Athletic Association. center_img A win tonight at frontrunner La Verne (16-5, 9-1) would help, though. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (12-9, 7-3) also stands between the Bulldogs and the top spot. Junior point guard Valarie Katayama (12.2 ppg, 4.8 apg) totaled 23 points and four assists in the Bulldogs’ win over the Athenas on Saturday. Others pitching in are freshman guard Ali Bueno (9.3 ppg), junior forward Alison Lavine (8.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg) and senior defensive standout Rachae Bell. last_img read more

Colon left off ALCS roster with shoulder injury

first_imgCHICAGO — Bartolo Colon is not on the Angels’ American League Championship Series roster because of an inflamed right shoulder and will undergo an MRI exam today. The Angels still hold out hope that Colon’s injury isn’t significant, and he can be placed on the roster for the World Series, if the team gets there. The Angels had to have their roster set by 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, and activated reliever Esteban Yan in place of Colon. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “We assumed it was his back or maybe he pulled a groin,’ Stoneman said. Said manager Mike Scioscia: “Bart’s a horse. When he says he’s hurt, it’s significant. Hopefully it’s something that can be dealt with short term. We’re not ruling him out of we’re fortunate to move on.’ The Angels are going with a pitching rotation of Paul Byrd, Jarrod Washburn, John Lackey and Ervin Santana. Washburn will make his first postseason start tonight in Game 2 after a bout with strep throat. He was supposed to pitch Game 4 of the AL Division Series against the Yankees last Sunday, but was too sick. “I have no idea how I got it,’ Washburn said. “My wife and kids were with me and they’re all fine. I hardly ever get sick. I’m feeling much better but I’m still a little weak and I don’t have all my strength back.’ Washburn said he didn’t eat for two days, then finally had some soup Tuesday. “I just want to help the guys,’ Washburn said. “I felt I let them down the last series when I couldn’t get out there and do my part.’ Washburn dealt with elbow tendinitis off and on all season, but he hasn’t pitched in a game since Oct. 1, so the arm won’t be an issue. “His elbow discomfort seems like it’s behind him now,’ Scioscia said. “Stamina is an issue. Can he go 90-100 pitches and go deep enough into the game?’ Stoneman said he has not been contacted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, who are rumored to be interested in talking with Angels bench coach Joe Maddon about their vacant managerial position. “I’d love to do it, but I haven’t heard anything,’ said Maddon, who’s been in the Angels organization since 1981. “It has to come through Bill. I believe in going through the proper channels. They have a bunch of young talent, as good a group as I’ve seen. They compare to ours from a couple years ago. They’ve done a great job with scouting and developing.’ A lot was made last year of the Red Sox’s first World Series victory since 1918, but the White Sox haven’t won a World Series since 1917. And if they do it this year? “Watch out Mayor Daley, I might be the next mayor,’ White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. “Believe me, I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm and so many people around Chicago so excited about it. I don’t care if you’re a Cubs fan, a Bulls fan, a Bears fan. I think a lot of people are Chicago fans. The name we wear on the chest says `Chicago,’ not `South Side.” Vladimir Guerrero started at designated hitter Tuesday, and Garret Anderson likely will be the DH tonight. Juan Rivera started in right field Tuesday and would get the nod in left tonight if Anderson is the DH. “You talk about Garret, (Darin) Erstad, Vlad, Bengie (Molina), these guys really have been grinding and are banged up,’ Scioscia said. “This gives us a chance to get (Guerrero) out of his druthers of playing right field.’ The White Sox’s Game 2 starter tonight, Mark Buehrle, said he respects the Angels offense, but also said, “I don’t think they’re as good offensively as Boston is.’ Anderson has had more success against Buehrle in his career than most Angels, even though it’s a lefty vs. lefty matchup. “He stays in against lefties,’ Buehrle said. “Most guys, Vlad or maybe Adam (Kennedy), they bail. He stays in there. I think he’s one of the best left-handed hitters against left-handed pitching.’ Joe Haakenson can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239, or by e-mail at joe.haakenson@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set!center_img “(Colon’s) a guy you want on your roster, but if that can’t happen you move on and make adjustments,’ Angels general manager Bill Stoneman said. “We had to make a decision. (The shoulder injury) sprung at the last second and we ran with the information we had. Our best guess was he would not be available for this series.’ Colon lasted only 23 pitches when he was removed from Monday’s Game 5 against the Yankees, one batter into the second inning. He’s been bothered by a sore back in the last month or so, but the shoulder problem caught the Angels a little by surprise. last_img
