: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : GH came back after being down at Halftime to beat Ribet by 5. Yes, Ribet had their whole team plus a guard from Bell Jeff.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :It must be the coach why they lost, because they are all Elite.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Calm down!! Its still fall league. Try and win your league outright for a change and then you can talk. Even better, try to win the City Section and then you can talk. Until then...just be quiet. Please!
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : Ribet didn't have their starting point guard and she makes a difference. It's amazing how everyone is so against Ribet.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : Always excuses. "they lost because they were missing this or that" how 'bout they just got outplayed. GH locked down the 6'9" girl, Ribet lots of turnovers. GH out ran them, RIbet girls was tired and got frustrated and they made more turnovers. Every time this team loses, it is excuses. THey'll be great for their league, that is why they are 2A.
: : : : : : : : : : : : I'm not making an excuse...im just correcting the earlier post that said they had their whole team....there starting point guard played well in tbe previous games i eas able to watch so again, just correcting an esrlier post. i wasn't there and they must have got outplayed....they have talent but clearly don't have things together.
: : : : : : : : : : : It all comes down to coaching. You can have all the talent in the world and if you can coach you’re not going to win. The team looks disorganized, they need to stay in 2A.
: : : : : : : : : : I definitly agree that coaching has to be on point for a team to be succesful! It will be interesting to see how Ribet makes out this season.
: : : : : : : : : :It's Fall League, why are you guys hatting too much on Ribet, must be jealous that we got Elite talents and clearly belong in Open Div.
: : : : : : : : : It is an upset due to coaching but even Sierra Canyon lost to a much weaker El Rancho team earlier today. How about that? That does mean Sierra is not an Open team also?
: : : : : : : : Ribet has the 7th best player in the nation! And she is 6'8ish! No excuses to lost to a city team
: : : : : : : Ribet needs a whole new coaching staff, there is so much talent at Ribet but they have no direction, you have top players that play nationally and they look so lost. Coaches arguing with each other then sitting on the bench looking lost. You better come up with a plan quick before your season starts.
: : : : : : :The more I get to watch their big the more I realize she's no where near talent wise from previous SS bigs. The likes of Higgins, Jones, Aubrey Knight, Odom and even Samuelson. She's just big but soft and limited footwork. Sorry but that's just the way I see it.
: : : : : no shame in losing to GH. They are the city favorite and have had the city's best coach for years. Will take any team and make them solid.
: : : : Yes, as well as some solid players.
: : : The LA City's best coach? How is that possible? Granada Hills hasn't won an Open Division or a section championship above Division 2. Quit smoking whatever you are smoking. Besides it is fall league the only people that care about a fall league win are the loudmouth parents that are living through their kids.
: : It sounds like if you want to beat a "top" team in the area.. schedule Ribet.
: No disrespect to current players at Granada but they have no superstars aka D1 recruits. Also, 75% of their team comes from the lower levels (JV, FS). So, if you think about it. Granada has a bunch of players that work their butts every year and the coaches from top to bottom in the program work to develop them. So, when a team with a bunch of D1 players and transfers from literally all over the world loses to them. You shouldn't have an excuse.
Agree that GH does a great job of developing a PROGRAM. Probably better than 95%+ of all schools - City or SS.
Not having D1 recruits doesn't mean you aren't good. They play hard and play smart. They play the right way. Most of the games I have seen them lose the last few years are because they aren't athletic enough against good teams.
I have seen the coach get out-coached several times in games against better teams or close games. But he is still better than almost everyone else.
We will see how good Granada is that first week of December when they play in Sierra Canyon tourney.
I wasn't at this game, but from what I have heard from people I respect, Ribet is a mess. While you can't teach 6-9", and Mensah is a force inside, the guard can be pressured. Which makes it hard to get ball to bigs.
Without a dominant guard and a decent passing wing, you can scheme against Ribet.
Once again, because Ribet parents came on here and started popping off in early Fall, Ribet has become the new Antelope Valley, hated and mocked by everyone on this board. Too bad, because the kids didn't do anything wrong. Hopefully they don't come on here.
