North falls to Fresno-Edison in Shootout semifinals; Edison to play Paraclete for title

Dec 9, 2023

BY STEPHEN LYNCHFor The Californian Dec 9, 2023 Sure, the North High boys basketball team would have liked nothing more than to have won its semifinal game of the Lloyd Williams Shootout on Friday night. However, a 55-38 setback at the hands of visiting Fresno-Edison wasn’t a complete loss for the Stars, who plan on using the early season game against a tough Division I opponent as a learning experience and a way to get ready for the start of league play in a month. A cold-shooting night combined with the inability to stop Tigers standout Va’ron Mitchell from lighting up the scoreboard in the first half proved to be North’s undoing. The Stars (3-4) made only one 3-pointer and it didn’t come until the third quarter. By that time, Edison (5-4) had already built a 31-11 halftime lead thanks in large part to 20 first-half points by Mitchell, who was red-hot shooting from midrange. North regrouped at halftime and played much better in the second half, outscoring the Tigers 14-11 in the third quarter. But despite a valiant effort the Stars simply didn’t have the firepower to climb out of the hole they had dug for themselves in the first half. “It’s always a great opportunity to get to go up against a traditional power like Edison,” North coach A.J. “We were really excited being a D-IV based school to get to play them. First-half, not great. Struggled offensively. Second half, so much more energy, so much more toughness. So much more aggressive decision making on the offensive end. It really salvaged something from the game with the way we played in the second half.” Edison coach Michael Fulford wasn’t surprised that North kept battling in the second half despite being down by double-digits. “A.J. and Rueben over there, those guys are tremendous coaches,” Fulford said. “They are two of my favorite coaches in our section, if not the state. We knew they were going to come out and fight. That’s the best culture team, I think, in our section. So, they gave us some problems but I’m proud of how our guys responded and weathered the storm because we knew it was coming.” North did a much better job defensively on Mitchell in the second half, holding him scoreless on 0-for-4 shooting in the third quarter. The 6-foot-4 guard/forward scored two of his three second-half baskets in the last 1:06 of the game and finished with a game-high 26 points. Wendell Ware had 14 points, including a pair of three-pointers for Edison, which never trailed and led by as many as 22 points. The Stars, a Division III team for last year’s section playoffs, were led in scoring by Nate Becerra (14 points) and Ethan Saenz (13 points). Becerra, a First Team All-Area selection last year, battled aggressively on the inside but got into foul trouble and had to sit out part of the game. Becerra’s fouls helped send the Tigers to the free throw line 16 times. Edison made only six of them. The Stars went 5-of-12 from the charity stripe. North trailed 14-8 at the end of the first quarter but opened the second quarter scoring with a reverse layup by Saenz to cut the deficit to just four points. That’s when Mitchell took over, exploding for 14 points during a 17-1 Tigers run over the last 7:12 of the first half. “He made some really tough shots,” Shearon said. “We contested those shots and were in the way…Sometimes when you get in semifinals and finals big-time players step up and make big-time plays and I think that’s exactly what he did tonight.” Fulford believes Mitchell is just starting to scratch the surface of how good he can be. “He’s got spurts like that where he’s the best player in the gym and one of the best players in our section,” Fulford said. “Now with him it’s just about being consistent on both sides of the floor. But we love what he gave us, and we wouldn’t be here without him.”
