: : : : :
: : : : : : : You really think Calabasas, Valencia, and Alemany were at full strength or putting in full effort for a preseason game?
: : : : : : Exactly!!!^^^^^^
: : : : : : : : : 1. Sierra Canyon
: : : : : : : : : 2. Harvard Westlake
: : : : : : : : : 3. Notre Dame
: : : : : : : : : 4. Heritage Christian
: : : : : : : : : 5. Calabasas
: : : : : : : : : 6. Birmingham
: : : : : : : : : 7. Valencia
: : : : : : : : : 8. Taft
: : : : : : : : : 9. Alemany
: : : : : : : : : 10. Chaminade
: : : : : : : : Santa Clarita Christian beat Calabasas, Valencia and Alemany in the last 2 weeks. Cardinals are definitely in this top 5.
: : : : : SCC won't compoete with any of those teams in real games. They'll lose to all three badly. Not even close.
: : : : Haha! SCCS will end up in Sacramento this season with Sierra canyon again playing for another State title just like last season! Yeah I know save your breath division 5 a State title is a state tile I don't give a damn what division it's in. Even though they moved up to division 3 they still can't be beat. Saw the team play 5 or 6 games in Anaheim their beating division 1 and 2 teams with ease all summer. The two new transfers are nice players at 6'5 & 6'6" there better this season and deeper. Ohh and yes the teams they are beating are at full strength.
: : : I wasn't sure the scc team could possibly make another run at state after losing the Star brother but seeing them a few times this summer and against Valencia they do appear to be better. I saw one really solid new transfer who can ball and play D he's a very athletic wing player watched him catch a deep lob pass to throw down the dunk... just not use to seeing this kind of athlete at a small school. The young PG they have is much better than I thought he controlled the whole game and is a lock to lead them. There two returning bigs are smooth and really good around the basket. Just a really well rounded basketball team. Spoke to a parent who said there in the addidas battlezone tourney, Alemany tourney, Sierra canyon tourney and Damien tourney I'm not sure how well they will do if at all but I know there not scared or ducking anyone with that open division schedule. Interesting watch!
: : Just being honest here. Any one reading the last two posts can tell you are a parent or player on the team. That is just way too much information for it not to be. Bet the team is good and the players have ability and skills. Please don't pretend to be on the outside when you are obviously an insider.
: I could see that but know I just made one post and now this one. I'm not a parent or a player just a fan of Santa Clarita sports mainly football and basketball in fact I think the best basketball team in SCV is Saugus high school and no im not a parent there either but I'm aware of there best players also such as the good shooting freshmen and led by a very good coaching staff that thinks defense first. Or Hart high school with the pickups of the Penberthy's there going to be in the mix with Kelly's coaching. Canyon well ok u got me there I don't know anyone there should be hovering in last place. West ranch has had a better fall season than I thought they would. The bottom line is im not a fool I know it's still just SCV basketball but I'm just a hometown guy that enjoys all the competition and really hope that all SCV teams do well and knock off Valley teams when they have the chance.
Let's start with how ridiculous that list is. This is Jack Pollon's list. The only people that think that Poo Poo Pollon knows basketball are the people at Santa Clarita Chr... because they don't know basketball. But we'll get to that later.
Taft shouldn't be on anyone's top 10. I don't care if it's top ten in a ten block radius. Will they improve during the season. Yes. But have you seen them play? Ugh. Birmingham? What?! The list is literally a ranking of the coaches and parents that Poo Poo Pollon likes the most.
What sports loser says "A title is a title... I don't care what the division is"? Seriously? That person is essentially saying, 'I know that I'm not that good so I'm going to beat up the little kids and then brag when I when.' I'd call thema sports bully but that might be too much credit.
Now, let's remember that that sort of thinking is Santa Clarita Chr. That is how the team got together and that's what they build their bragging rights on. They're in their own little Santa Clarita bubble. I've never heard anyone talk about them in a positive light who isn't from there. Never. Not once.
Santa Clarita Chr is doing what Chaminade started to do but stopped. It's doing what Village did, screwed up at, and now stopped. They're bragging about wins and players who aren't quality. Yeah... I said it.
4 years ago Chaminade's daddy ball made the coaches bring in and play guys who weren't varisity good by any means. But whenever the competition was weak and they had good games they'd advertised the heck out of them. SCCS' playbook. Village had a fullback at point guard, probably the most inept coach that I've ever seen and yet there was constant bragging. SCCS' playbook.
If SCCS was to enjoy their quality-less wins in the privacy of their own culde-sacs then nobody would care. But the constant bragging and thinking that you're actually relevant in SoCal's basketball world is insulting.
