: : : Two d1 players with size and they are 9-9? Lost by 25 to Newport and theirnimciach wasn’t even there... what’s happening?
: : It takes more than just talent and size. Their guard play is not very good and neither is their chemistry. Someone is going to blame the coach, and it is tough to hold him blameless, but sometimes the group just can't get it done.
: Newport harbor looks a lot like a Princeton team of old...don't turnover the ball, shoot lights out, back door cut you to death, great defense. A formula built to beat and embarass teams that aren't well coached despite superior talent.
1- Newport Harbor is really good.. they're 14-1 by the way..
2- Marina has played a very nice schedule.. 2-2 in Chicago tournament.. losses to Villa Park (15-1) & Mater Dei (11-1).. not to mention Downey (12-2), Palos Verdes (11-2), Schurr (11-3). That's 5 losses in CA to teams with a combined 60-7 record. Let's not push the ejection button.. yeah, would be nice to win a couple of those, but if you don't have really good guards (which they don't), you're going to have some problems with elite level teams.
