Signal The Light Basketball will be in Irvine over the weekend to cover the Southern California Fall Juco Jamboree. The biggest junior college event on the west coast will begin Friday at 3pm and will end on Sunday early evening. College coaches around the nation are expected to be in attendance to watch over 50 teams participate at the event. This will be the first time a lot of teams have been in competition on the floor since the postponement at the Elite Eight due to Covid 19 in 2019-2020. Eight teams did play games in the 2020-2021 season but teams are expected to be in full force and this weekend will be a chance to see a lot of Southern California’s traditional powerhouses in action. Six of the Eight teams that were expected to be at the Elite Eight from 2019-2020 are scheduled to play at the event.
After a two year absence from covering junior college basketball in California, Signal The Light Basketball is back on the scene. John Bynum will be covering the event after spending the last two seasons on the sidelines coaching division 2 basketball at MSU Denver. “It feels good being back covering a level of basketball that is often overlooked and helping give exposure to players around the state,” said Bynum the operator of Signal The Light Basketball. Bynum previously covered the state for five seasons over a blog that gives weekly rankings, and provides daily coverage throughout the season. “I am looking forward to seeing some quality basketball and a lot of people that make this venture possible,” added the former 14 year overseas player. The coverage will be provided throughout the weekend over STLB’s twitter feed (@sgnlthelgthoops) and stay tuned for conference previews and continued articles with coaches around the state.
