2018 CCCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Northern California Schedule
Wednesday, Feb. 21
(17) West Hills (18-7) at (16) Monterey Peninsula (15-13)
Neither team has a dominating big and Monterey is at home but the Lobo defense better be ready as West Hills is shooting 48.2% on the season as opposed to MPC’s 42.5%. West Hills is on a three-game losing streak but consider that the losses were to Fresno City College, Columbia College and College of the Sequoias, all three being playoff teams.

Coach Herb Sendek‘s Bronco squad (9-17, 6-8) is currently down 8% in shooting accuracy to opponents as well as averaging six less boards a contest. They collectively need to shoot better, correspondingly score more and rebound with greater effect in order to work towards at least a .500 record in the 2018-19 season. Can that happen?

Golden State Prep (GSP) is all about developing and enhancing each of their player’s full potential in order to have a higher chance of playing at the College Basketball. If you have not secured the college opportunity you are looking for or simply want to enhance your options, then Golden State Prep is the right choice for you after high school graduation. GSP will work hand in hand with the staff from Prolific Prep, utilizing a similar model and schedule to create the ultimate training academy for all of its players.
Below are reasons you should choose the Golden State Prep Postgraduate Program:
• Staffing: GSP Athletes will be working side by side with the Prolific Prep Staff, facilities, and their networking capabilities. All 7 staff members at Prolific Prep have played and coached in college, placing hundreds of athletes into NCAA Colleges or the Professional Ranks.
• One Year Gap: GSP provides athletes a one-year Gap designed to enhance their basketball and educational platforms. The student-athlete’s NCAA “Clock” will not start, the player will not lose a year of NCAA Eligibility.
• Improve your Body and Game: The backbone of GSP will be built around Skill Development. It is the reason Prolific Prep was formed and the reason why GSP is a success. This includes maturing as a player physically, mentally, and socially. Players will have designated time for Strength & Conditioning, Yoga, and basketball skill court training. The GSP program is all about YOU!
Game Schedule: GSP will play in West Coast Events in Napa, Los Angeles, Nevada, and Arizona. The group will travel by Passenger Van/Bus to each event. The GSP program will run from Mid August to March, playing a 35+ game schedule.

Richard H. Mohr
May 25, 1932 – Feb 8, 2018
Rich was born in San Francisco to Frances and Herman Mohr. His parents divorced at age 10, and since he was an only child this began his path of independence.
His father introduced him to basketball and it became the recreational outlet that he grew to love in his youth. In his free time he could be found on the playgrounds of the Sunset District playing pick up games with other neighborhood kids. Many carefree summers were spent in St. Helena with his grandparents and great aunt and uncle who spoiled him, working in the family bakery and driving a tractor in the vineyards. He went to Lincoln High School where he played Varsity. His friends were important to him and he began many lifelong, cherished relationships there. As a sophomore it was at the school’s candy counter that he met his future wife, Joan Walti. Except for one brief time in college, they were a couple until their marriage in 1955.
Rich played guard for USF in the early 50s and graduated with a degree in education. He married Joan, they were in the Army for a couple years, and then he got his first coaching job at Riordan HS and achieved their first CAL championship. He moved to Walnut Creek where he and Joan raised their 3 children, David, Kathy and Denise. Rich continued working in the Mt. Diablo school district teaching, coaching and later becoming a counselor and then Vice Principal. He touched the lives of many students. There was a second championship basketball team at Ygnacio Valley HS.
Rich raised his children with discipline, but that was tempered with a wonderful sense of humor that his family appreciated. He especially enjoyed seeing his son do well in recreational and school sports.
Soon after retiring from work, Joan got Parkinson’s Disease which began a 20 year journey, and interrupted plans for a care-free retirement. Rich’s devotion to her as a husband and caregiver was remarkable through those years. As an adult he developed a passion for tennis and golf and these were his outlets of escape from caregiving. Six years ago after 57 years of marriage, his loving wife Joan passed away.
Rich went home to be with the Lord on Feb. 8th. He was never the expressive type, but he was deeply loved by his children and will be sorely missed. Also heartbroken by his passing are grandchildren Gabriel, Aidan, Shane, Erin and Alex; daughter-in-law Monica and many friends.
Rich requested a small, private service. Any donations in his name can be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
