The quiet whispers of SRV fans appear to have been heard regarding the overplayed sophomore. SRV coaching staff sit their sophomore three-point shooter. SRV walks away with a solid and impressive win against Cal High. Perhaps SRV can turn their season around, after all.

For the Las Lomas vs Acalanes game, I have some stats. For the Knights, senior Kirey Carson led all scorers with 24 points on 11 of 17 shooting from the field. He also picked up 10 rebounds and shot 2 of 4 on rebounds. Senior Christian Lawson also hit two three pointers and finished with eight points. For Acalanes, Sophomore Noah Orlik led the team with 15 points and senior James Griffin finished with eight points and seven rebounds.

"the quiet whispers of SRV fans" ? considering previous posts, I was half expecting a fanatic in the bleachers waving a petition.
Ian Wordsmith January 30, 2012 at 12:04 AM
I am not against the idea of having the sophomore share a role on the SRV varsity team as a three point shooter. He can definitely shoot an outside shot from the set position, but so can his other teammates, such as Harris Arghandiwal. Harris Arghandiwal in fact was winning games for the JV team last season, while Karczewski was on the freshmen squad recovering from a broken arm he suffered in an earlier JV preseason game. In fact, in the last Cal High game Karczewski was twice slammed hard to the floor, he was just degrees away from becoming seriously hurt, again. As a left-handed point guard he is dribbling east/west, and not north/south, and lacks a good right hand approach to the hoop, as was evident in the Monte Vista game when he missed the much needed lay-up late in the hotly contested game. Defensively, Karczewski becomes a net liability if left on the floor too long given that the opposition with a taller guard can easily shoot over him at will. Therefore a select three point shooter role is best for him and the team. I believe the quit whispers would agree.
