As a measuring stick of success, Glendale College men's basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin would like to see his team win 20 games for the sixth time in seven years.
But that could prove to be a tall order this time around.
The Vaqueros, 17-11 overall, open the state community college playoffs Saturday night at Ventura (15-8) in a first-round game of the Southern California regional tournament.
Ventura's size will pose the most immediate threat to Glendale's bid for 20 wins.
"They start a front line that goes 6-7, 6-8 and 6-7 across," Beauchemin said. "Our tallest player is about 6-6.
"Plus, their big guys are quick. We'd rather have them be big and slow."
That could mean a change in the lineup at times for the Vaqueros, Beauchemin said.
"Part of our problem is that we start guards that are 5-8 and 5-9," he said. "So we may have to juggle some things to get more size in the lineup.
