In Reply to: WAY to GO OAKWOOD!!! posted by coach on January 30, 2019 at 12:48:14:
After scouting most teams in the division, Oakwood is well coached and a solid team, however the best team in that division is Western Christian. deToledo is a ok division 5 team but not in the upper part of that division.
Some teams to watch is the
El Monte team
Avalon team on the island
Waverly plays hard
Look at strength of schedule before making a decision.
: : : : : : : : : Congratulations to the Oakwood Gorillas on their crushing and very convincing road victory tonight over the de Toledo Jags 71-52! wow!
: : : : : : : : : This game was the biggest game of the season for both teams and Oakwood and their young team and first year coach Mike Balian showed why they are now the team to beat in their League. Aiden Oliver - the transfer 6'4 center for Oakwood - completely dominated at both ends of the court. Great job Oakwood!
: : : : : : : : Didnt Pacifica Christian already win that league?
: : : : : : : Technically yes they did - Oakwood is now in second place and they play Pacifica next week at Oakwood. Oakwood will defeat Pacifica next week on senior night and show that they are the better team - they played Pacifica prior without Aiden Oliver - their new transfer 6'4 center - the team is totally different now - CIF play offs coming up - Oalwood is now the team to beat. Mark that down in your notes.
: : : : : : Cmon man.....no one has ever heard of these schools, players or coaches. I think the "sisters of holy mercy" are also in this league.
: : : : : so - lets see if i understand your point? According to you - the only thing that matters in HS Basketball are the upper divisions? All of the lower divisions dont matter? Try telling that to the hundreds of kids who play D4 and D5. Your comment was silly.
: : : : Logical fallacy; his point is that the people on this board don't care about those schools, it has nothing to do with the players caring or not.
: : :
: : : As of now, the last post is true. The elitists on this board don't care about those divisions unless there is a "super team" loaded with D1 studs that works its way to at least Open consideration. Whether you agree with that or not, it's just the way it is.
: : : However, watch out for Oakwood going forward. New gym, new AD, new direction. Rumor is they are trying to be like another small, ultra-expensive, private school in the northwest valley...time will tell.
: : BTW - and for the record - someone incorrectly posted that Oakwood has a "new gym"? LOL - Their ggym is NOT "new" - they built it 20 years ago or so - its a nice gym - but its hardly not "New". Their young coach is "new" - MIke Balian - he is new - and he is now the face of Oakwood moving forward.
: Do not let anyone diminish your excitement for hoops...
