: Western Christian playing New Roads and Oakwood playing Carpenteria Saturday night Feb 16. Winners face each other Feb 23 for championship. Prediction? #1 seed Western Christian vs #2 seed Oakwood with Oakwood defeating WC by 10. WC struggled against deToledo while Oakwood beat Toledo easily. No team in 5A has a player like Gorilla PF/C Oliver. He is the difference maker. In State, Santa Clara has a 6'10 center (OLiver) who could give Oakwood Big guy (OLiver) a game. Should be fun.

"Give" him a game? As in, Oakwood would/should be favored? After beating Avalon by 12, Oakwood shouldn't look past Carpinteria tomorrow.

Stop writing checks these kids can't cash. You are doing an inexperienced team and young coach no favors. Any game vs Santa Clara would be played @ Santa Clara, especially with tonight's 12-point win over Avalon.

Sage Hill will be seeded over Oakwood as well, Oakwood will probably have to win a game down there just to make it to Santa Clara. Don't overlook Bassett/Hueneme either.

If you are so confident in Oakwood beating everybody by 20+, you should be at some of these 5AA games instead to give your team a detailed, up-to-date scouting report - Bassett is not the same team they were a month ago. Western Christian wouldn't have made the 5AA semis if they played half a division up.
