: : : : : : Just curious, for those that have been watching fall league basketball, which OC teams have made surprising progress that no one talks about?

: : : : : La Habra--Got the pg from Buena Park

: : : : : Marina--Too big for most OC teams

: : : : : Foothill--Coach Johnson is best coach in league.

: : : : Um, ok. Coach Johnson is the best coach in what league? The one he is in has Kevin Reynolds at Villa Park - one of the most successful coaches in the county without a CIF Title, Nate Harrison at Canyon with three CIF Titles - arguably the top coach in the county, and Mark Hill at Esperanza who has won a couple CIF Titles. Sorry pal, but Johnson is at the bottom of this group as are 90% of the coaches in OC. As to the Foothill team, they may be improving, but will be 4th in this league and will have a hard time qualifying for the playoffs. Quite a drop off from their past success.No offense to a young coach that is trying to replace a highly successful coach and trying to keep the program relevant.

: : : That's a tough group to be placing Coach Johnson so high.

: : He's only the 3rd best coach even in his own 3-school district as well. And I don't mean that to be a knock on him since the other two coaches are good, but that you've got to let him get more than 1 season under his belt.

: : A team that won't get attention but should because they play hard and have more talent than they've had in a while is Century. Don't get me wrong, they will probably finish around .500, but they are much better than they have been, making great progress.

: Century was literally 2 minutes from a CIF title game last year. Division doesn't matter. They had a freshman and 3 sophomores starting. Coach Young does an outstanding job with the talent he gets. But to say they're better than they have been in a while- that's a statement that should be made in a time machine.

Wow, I throw a bone to a team with a record of 27-55 over the 3 previous years and you tell me that statement should be made in a time machine? Get over yourself. Division matters when talking about how good a team is. It just doesn't matter to the coach and the players. We are talking about improvements and they are making them, and I think this year they could get away with playing a few moderate level teams and maybe sneak a win in. But, when you are losing games to Katella, Orange, and Savanna, you are still in the same category as before.
