: : : What did it take all but 20 min to research and write this pathetic attempt at a GIRLS BASKETBALL preview........14 games into the season!!!!!

: : Agreed!!! What an absolute joke of an article. Especially the playerís to watch. I sincerely hope that this isnít the only article the Daily News uses to preview the season. Did this writer even attend or the games?

: Don't bash him he is covering what is his news paper covers so he is doing a piece on local players in Valley

It is incredibly sad regarding the decline of high school sports coverage by local newspapers. The Southern California Newspaper Group, which owns the Register, Daily News, Daily Breeze, S. G. Valley Tribune, Pasadena Star News among others has accelerated this sad decline. They have so many good writers and journalists at these papers who have covered high school sports for years and instead of pooling their resources and expanding coverage, they have done nothing but cut...cut...cut all in the name of money. The Register used to have a reporter and story at EVERY high school football team played by an OC team. That stopped after the SC group takeover. They also had complete box scores for basketball, softball and baseball, now replaced by a skeleton version. This is really sad that something that was done really well in the past gets gutted in the name of money and a warped sense of "progress".
