: : : : : : : : : : : If you are a fan of basketball - tonight - final game of the season - 7pm - Oakwood takes on rival and very tough team Pacifica Christian on "Senior Night" at Oakwood High School.

: : : : : : : : : : : It should be a fun and exciting game - good luck Oakwood - biggest game for Oakwood in many years!

: : : : : : : : : : What is Oakwood record? Where is that School? Some of these Teams in small divisions, so never heard of them

: : : : : : : : : To be honest I'd rather go watch ECR vs. Granada Hills Girls Basketball.

: : : : : : : : Biggest win for Oakwood in years - and they have the new head coach Mike Balian to thank. Coach Mike has turned their program around - they won their 13th game of the season - whether you are impressed or not is irrelevant - the entire school is impressed and the League is impressed and wait until Oakwood begins CIF playoffs. You see - it doesnt matter what division you play in, what matters is how you play and do you win? Good game tonight Oakwood - now - lets move on and win in playoffs. The best is yet to come.

: : : : : : : Thanks coach Balian for the update.

: : : : : : Coach Balian does not post here. I do. Before you write your jealous posts, be sure you have your facts straight. Go Gorillas!

: : : : : Whatever you say Coach.

: : : : LOL - you are lame - you still dont get it, do you? Stop your hating and petty jealousy, Coach Mike is a young, talented coach who doesnt post here. Did it ever occur to you that a fan of his and Oakwood HS and team posts here? LOL Stop hating, it is not good for your health.

: : : Was he just as talented of a coach before the transfer came in and took over. I think this is as simple as you get a kid that is bigger and better than the rest of the small school teams. Its a recipe that has been used over and over and will continue to work. Bring in transfers to small schools and beat up on the schools that play with the hand they are dealt.

: : You are correct - 100% - the 6'5 transfer changes everything - of course - he would change any school he attends. But it happens all the time. Small private schools do it all the time, kids are free to go to whatever school they can get into but must have the grades and means of course. Coach MIke is a good solid coach who worked hard with his team before the tranfer was approved and cleared to play. He had his kids ready and when they added the new kid everything clicked. Should we diss Coach Mike because he now has a legit center? The kid wanted to transfer to Oakwood - and others may as well. They have a good program - a good school - a good coach - and a good future.

: Yup so i think we should hold off on assessing him until he is coaching against evenly matched teams, which again this year may not happen because they are in such a low division and most of those schools have 0 post players.

Good points, cannot argue with anything you said. I know the coach quite well so i have the advantage of knowing his character and his abilities. I watched him grow and i saw him develop into a good man and a good coach. He is the kind of man and coach who will attract good players, kids want to play for him. That said, we shall see how far he can take this team this year. I wont be shocked if they go far - because in addition to the big guy, they have a group of kids that play hard and play smart and want to prove they belong.
