Merced defeats Golden Valley to claim share of CCC crown

From the first day of practice Merced boys basketball coach Hector Nava knew the Bears had enough talent to win a conference championship.

The Bears answered that question on Tuesday night with a 61-51 win over Golden Valley to earn a share of the Central California Conference championship with the Cougars.
