: : Valley Teams:
: : Achievers - Crespi, Oak Park, Harvard Westlake,
: : Overachievers - Van Nuys, Calabasas, Taft, Newbury Park (first half of season)
: : Underachievers - Sierra Canyon, Oaks Christian, Alemany, Birmingham, Westlake, Newbury Park (second half of season)
: My opinion:
: Achievers: Crespi, Brandon Williams is spectacular; Oak Park; HW; Sierra Canyon, if anyone expected more from them doesn't know basketball. They're not underachieving either.
: Overachievers: (How do you put NewPark in there for the 1st half? Lol.)
: Van Nuys; Calabasas, Coach Palarz is doing a great job there. Calabasas is a better fit for him as a coach and he's doing a fantastic job. Chaminade, yes Nade. Great record? No. But they play much, much better than anyone expected.
: Underachievers: Alemany, always. Santa Clarita Chr, underachieving and disappointment. Look at their schedule. They've lost big to every decent team that they've played. Their league is the least challenging in SoCal, yet they brag on each league win. An average team that's too arrogant to fix their flaws. Taft, yes Taft. Clark is the best pg in California. But watching them play and there's some players who believe that they're the best player on the team and trying to prove it by going outside of themselves and the team. Expect a collapse in the playoffs.
Agree completely on Chaminade. Have seen them a few times and while many times overmatched, they play hard and as a team. And the frosh are good. I think they are on the right path with the new staff. I would look for them to be more competitive in Mission League next year.
