The Inland Empire Scorpions basketball team had a rough day Sunday. The over matched team was beaten soundly by their counterparts, the Inland Havoc Basketball team. The tournament game at Player’s Edge Sports Facility in Riverside, California was a disappointing one for the Scorpion players though they did the best they could under the circumstances. Unfortunately, the limited player pool the Scorpions deal with has a lasting effect on the level of success of the basketball program as is the case with any basketball program (i.e. if many players are trying out for a specific team, the team has a better chance of building an elite team from the larger pool of players). The current Inland Empire Scorpions team is compiled from a limited number of tryout participants due to the limited exposure the club gets from outside media (as opposed to larger, well known clubs that provide higher levels of competition).
