: : : : : : Brandon Williams scored 30 points to lead Crespi (16-2, 3-0) to a 96-64 Mission League win over Notre Dame Sherman Oaks
: : : : : : Said it months ago - ND at .500 by seasons end. Fools gold pre-season schedule had them at 12-1. Sarge and the Knights aren't ready for BIG BOY Mission League basketball.
: : : : : : not battle tested for the Mission League gauntlet. Maybe they get 2 wins in League. Would that be a good season? Same old, same old ND.
: : : : The talent in the mission is hella weak. But there's a sprinkle of guys to watch. Zaire at Notre Dame is very good. They play well as a team but everyone is HS ok. Brandon Williams is very good. Harvard Westlake is a good team & have a couple of good kids. That's pretty much it. DJ at Alemany is D1 & Fred is good but overall the mission is weak.
: : : Or maybe,just maybe, ND set their schedule to get 12 wins knowing that 13 (most teams play 26 games, so 13,thus qualifying for the pre-requistie .500 rule to make playoffs) So, if they win 1 more game and go 13-13, make playoffs,lose first round granted, they will have had a fine season. Parents happy, kids remember they had a good year (13-13,made playoffs).Years from now those kids,when asked about their Senior year basketball,will have fond memories knowing they had a non-losing season(possible winning season if they win 2 league games. Will be 14-12),and made playoffs. They will have zero recollection of who they played in non-league competition. Enjoy your time ND kids, the memories will last. Have a good season. Nobody will make the NBA or even D-1, so enjoy the experience of a solid season.
: : On top of that even with a bad league record they are more than likely in a division where they can win a game or two in playoffs. Makes for an even better look back and reminisce.
: ND isn't good but Zaire is. He must really like the school though. ND isn't going to get any better anytime soon. No hoopers.
Bro, you completely missed the point of Reality Check and More Reality posts. I like what you 2 had to say. Good opinion.
