: : : : : 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.
: : : You forgot HERITAGE CHRISTIAN.
: : Heritage? haha. They lost a ton of seniors and their PG. 3 starters out hurt most of the season. They are exactly were they should be...a below .500 team. May be better next year but probably more like 2 years.
: Nobody expected much from Heritage. JC's over achievers is accurate. I think that Chino Hills over achieved. Most of us knew that they'd be better in a system revoked around the team's actual best players. But they've been very good.
: Let's be real. St Francis is very bad & Loyola is bad. They've been bad for awhile. What about Crossroads as an underachiever?
: How is Alemany always underachieving/Underachievers and they won the Mission League three years in a row? (Undefeated last year) And this years team is nowhere close to being as talented. Outside of Fred (limited) and DJ they donít have much. Whitney will be a player, but he had ZERO significant minutes prior to this season. Alemany wasnít even picked to win league this year! They finshed right where they were slated.
