: : : : : I am very proud and pleased to hear that Oakwood High School has hired a new Varsity coach - and he is Mike Balian. I have had the pleasure and honor of coaching MIke for many years - and then - coaching with him at the local parks - All-Star Teams - Travel teams - etc. MIke started out playing basketball at a local park - loved it so much - he went on earn his BS in Kinesiology - became a HS referee - coaching the boys 8th grade teams at Campbell Hall - coaching many teams in ARC - doing one on instruction - group clinics - and now - this - Varsity Coach at Oakwood. I know Mike - he will be a great coach at Oakwood - he is an exemplary role model. Good job to a good man - The Magicman

: : : : What happened to the last coach from Oakwood?

: : : I have no idea - i assume - he was not rehired -

: : Where is this school?

: Noho. School once had players, including Mitchell Butler, former UCLA point guard. That was a long, long time ago. For more than 20 years, Oakwood has been irrelevant as a basketball school. Great education, very high tuition, exclusive and tought to get into. The school has great facilities, and a relatively new gym. It will be interesting to see if this guy can put this school back on the map when the prior two coaches couldn't make it happen.

The Biggest thing that has to happen - is - of course - finding several new - good players - you cant win the Kentucky Derby riding a donkey.
