Good Sports: New Caruthers basketball surface is a part of NBA history

CARUTHERS, Calif. (KFSN) -- The last hardwood floor Hall of Famer Charles Barkley played on as a member of the Phoenix Suns now sits in the tiny farming community of Caruthers.
Over the last decade or so, the Fresno County town has built a reputation as a basketball hotbed thanks to its perennial power high school girls program and subsequent travel teams.
But now it's the surface they play on that has opposing teams taking notice.
"You're talking Steve Nash was on that court, Danny Ainge was the coach at the time," says Clovis East boys basketball coach Adrian Wiggins.
Rancher Larry Trigueiro led a team of investors to purchase the very same court once owned and used by the Phoenix Suns.
Trigueiro says they bought it from a youth center in Oregon who got it from the NBA team when they were done using it a number of years ago.
"A floor like this new is about $175k, we didn't get to six figures but it was a high five-figure count. Part of it is the events we put on are going to help pay for it. We had a group of generous people who donated a lot more than just me, a lot of people have a part in this and working their butts off to make it happen. Ultimately our kids and our community are going to benefit from it all," Trigueiro says.
But before the floor could be purchased, Trigueiro, who also coaches one of Caruthers' elite AAU teams, needed an indoor facility large enough to house the 94 feet of court.
He found it inside the commercial building at the fairgrounds.
"People are amazed that the kids get to play on an NBA floor, it's got first-class baskets, shot clocks, got digital clocks here, we have a PA system the fairgrounds let us use, we got music piped in and it's kind of got an old school feel and so it's been very positive," Trigueiro says.
Surrounded by American flags, the cozy confines inside the barn-like building only adds to the nostalgia of this unique basketball setting now used by the high school and area youth teams.
"You worry about if the ceiling will be high enough, is it going to be safe, are they going to have some issue where the walls are too close. They didn't, it was spaced out perfectly. The fans could see, they weren't too close, the benches were fine, the floor was kept in great shape. Honestly it's great idea," says Clovis East coach Wiggins.
From hotly contested NBA games to then 12th ranked Fresno State's showdown vs Arkansas in '97, this court has hosted its share of great players. Now the next generation of talent is using it to foster their own success.
"There's a lot of history on this floor so we want to keep some of that and the fact that our college down the street played on it, so NBA legends played on it. I think it was NBA Finals court at one time, there's a lot of cool stuff here."
Right now the court is used for practice and exhibition games but the goal is to begin hosting tournaments and there's even talk to build an outdoor streetball surface adjacent to the pavilion.
Extreme heat conditions force Fresno-area high schools to change football kickoff times

Extreme heat this week is forcing school districts to adjust football kickoff times at many games in the Central Section.
The National Weather Service in Hanford is predicting temperatures to be at 106 degrees on Thursday and 108 on Friday in Fresno, prompting an excessive heat warning from 11 a.m. Wednesday to 8 p.m. Sept. 6. Some surrounding areas are predicted to see even higher temperatures.
“Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities,” the weather service says in a heat warning.
Most junior varsity games will start at 6 or 6:30 p.m. with eight-minute quarters. In the second half, games will have a running clock.
Brett Marr, the Fresno Unified athletics manager, said teams will have extra rest periods and water breaks during practices that are recommended because of the sweltering heat.
“By 7 p.m., the temperature is usually below 105 which is the number we use to stop all outdoor activities,” he wrote in an email to The Bee. “It will always be recommended for athletes and coaches to stay hydrated, stay in the shade when possible, and take extra breaks as needed from activity. If you are not feeling well, let someone know.”

Caruthers' Monster: The freshman playing four sports at once

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- "My name is Gizelle Aguirre and I play volleyball, basketball, softball and soccer."
Caruthers freshman Gizelle Aguirre is a four-sport athlete -- currently playing for three Blue Faider teams simultaneously.
"We recruited her over to basketball, as time went on she was a beast of a softball player," says basketball coach Anna Almeida. "Volleyball was something that we added recently."
The freshman says she's grateful that Caruthers is allowing her to play in all four sports, a circumstance unique to the pandemic.
"It's been crazy," she said. "My coaches, we have a schedule of what practices and games I can go to. Sometimes, they'll schedule games earlier so I can go to the next game. It's crazy but I like it."
"I haven't seen her get tired, I haven't seen her complain, she just loves it so much," says soccer coach Jon Allen. "She's just having fun."
Last week, she scored eight goals in a single game - beating a Caruthers record set by her sister who scored seven.
"Once I got eight, I got taken out of the game because we were already winning but I was like, I don't care," she said. "I just wanted to beat my sister."
Through seven games - she's hitting .750 at the plate, and is one of seven softball players who also play basketball. Caruthers and the teams' parents pitched in to start a college-like program so that the girls stay injury-free.
"They've waited an entire year to play sports, we don't want them to have to wait another year," Almeida said. How can we protect their bodies? It's our responsibility as adults to make sure that they can continue to compete."
The Blue Raiders purchased a compression device to help with recovery and have even created meal plans. The girls eat anywhere from 3,700 to 5,000 calories a day and have to check in with Almeida on what they're eating for breakfast.
"For me, when I go from one game or practice to the next, she'll bring me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to eat so that I don't feel sick from going from all those sports, so she makes sure we're all healthy," Aguirre said.
Aguirre goes by the nickname 'Monster" but says it's not because of her talent.
"People think it's because I play all these sports, but it's because when I was little, my hair was huge and when I would wake up, I would look like a monster and still is to this day," she said.
These days -- "Monster" goes through three to four practices a day.
A rare breed and a player who has been a game changer for the Blue Raiders on the court and on the field.

A series of armed robberies continues to grow in Caruthers, making more store clerks afraid. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office says a crew of suspects is responsible for six armed robberies within the last month.
Deputies did arrest two teens for robbing a Dollar General in Caruthers on Tuesday. One teen actually opened fire into the ceiling of Dollar General while the other teen waved a knife around, deputies say. But the two teens aren’t tied to the string of robberies that detectives are focused on.
Ranjit Kaur is in her element. The Valero on West Tahoe Avenue is like her second home. Four years ago she left India for the Valley. She’s even picked up some Spanish and Caruthers is special to her.
“I love this town because I love the people,” said Kaur.
But recently, she’s experienced true fear.
“There are stupid things going on in this town,” said Kaur to a customer.
Surveillance video from November 14 shows a masked man walk into the Valero with a gun.
“They say give me all your money. Give me money,” recalled Kaur.
Kaur and her co-worker quickly handed over the cash.
“It’s very scary man,” said Kaur.
Detectives say the armed robbery spree kept going. Two days later on at the Caruthers Market. Then November 18 at Cargo Market in Laton. More than a week later on November 29 at the Valero again. The suspects hit the Caruthers Market again on December 2 before robbing Dollar General the next day.
“We are gonna step up patrols to have cars pass through there more often. Maybe some cars cross over from different areas just to increase that visibility,” said Tony Botti with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
Store clerks in the area like Kaur, are hoping the suspects are arrested soon. Despite the growing paranoia, she is usually smiling but she’s more aware than ever.
“I am afraid definitely when somebody enter inside,” said Kaur.
Deputies say there could be three suspects involved in this string of robberies. They’re seen on camera wearing hoodies, masks and gloves. Call the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office if you have any information.
