In the summer and late fall, comments from a few northern California community college coaches centered on many of the southern California team rosters possessing great size. Now size doesn’t necessarily translate into effectiveness but the coaches from up north were wondering how the elite teams in their region would match up with their goliath counterparts in the Southland come the state championships…
After a successful summer run with Lakeshow, which included winning a Fab 48 championship in Las Vegas, 6-foot-5 Ronald Agebsar is back for his senior year at Sheldon High. The Huskies are 2-1 thus far, beating Woodcreek High and Dublin High while falling to Capital Christian, all in the Gridley Invitational tournament.
Asked what he worked on the most since his junior season, Agebsar said, “My handle and my shot. I’ve definitely improved my shot.” With 6-foot-10 Chris Wriedt transferring over from Capital Christian and joining 6-foot-8 Brennen Newsom on the Sheldon frontline, Agebsar is finding himself playing on the wing at times. “I want to show that I’m more than a big.”
Holding an offer from Eastern Oregon University, Agebsar has also maintained contact with Humboldt State and Cal State East Bay plus Casper College in Wyoming. He’s wide open regarding recruiting — “I’m not bound to California,” he explained.
With every team in the Delta League currently at .500 or above, the competition for the top spot is going to be a battle. According to Agebsar, the goal is to win sections and then state.
Sheldon will next be playing in the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas followed by the Rancho Mirage Holiday Classic in Arizona.

6-foot-4 Max Fried is one wise individual. Just look at both the awareness and the values this 2019 University High and Bay Area Warriors talent displayed when asked to detail his best basketball skills: “My defense, my hustle and competitiveness, and being a good teammate. You can’t control your offense but you can control those things.” Talk about manna for any basketball coaches tuning in.
But that’s not all. As a sophomore, he earned Bay Counties League West First Team All League honors also due to his per game statistical production of 8.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.9 steals as well as shooting 43% on 51 three-point attempts. Add in solid strength and athleticism and the package is indeed attractive…

Boys Basketball Player of the Week
(Los Gatos) Sr.
Los Gatos started this week at 7-0 for the early season and a big reason is this 6-foot-6 University of San Francisco-bound three-year starting forward who has been red hot both scoring points and cleaning the glass.
Last week, Belquist made the bell toll on three opponents, and as a result he was named MVP of the Los Gatos Lions Club Wildcat Shootout. His best effort was a double-double 32-point, 11-rebound performance in the 56-44 championship game victory over San Mateo.
