The basketball players at unbeaten Bernstein High have quickly learned the expectations of first-year coach Chans Smyth, who used to be head coach at Price.

“I don’t play if I don’t get good grades,” junior guard Greg Griffin said.

Griffin was academically ineligible last season at Marshall. He came to Bernstein, and a commitment was made to change what was happening in the classroom.

“I’m on him, his mom is on him. We’re holding him accountable,” Smyth said. “If he misses an assignment, I know about it. If he’s late for class, I know about it.”

So far, so good on and off the court for Bernstein, which improved to 7-0 on Monday with a 66-23 win over Robert Kennedy. Bernstein, a City Section Division IV team, is 5-0 in the Central League. It has three guards who can shoot and score in Griffin, Troy Agtang, a senior transfer from Downtown Business Magnet, and sophomore Carlos Cordero.

Agtang has scored 43, 27 and 19 points in his three games this season. Griffin is averaging more than 25.5 points. Cordero scored 16 points against Kennedy.

Smyth, whose day job is working as a dean at a South Los Angeles charter school, is sticking with the approach that his players need to take care of things in the classroom before fun time on the court.

“I like it,” Griffin said.
