: : : King: overachieving team with great coaching. Had them 2nd or 3rd in league.
: : : Centennial: great team, good coaching, young and talented. Missing a post. Late struggles and out-coached in key losses.
: : : Norco: great player with good supporting role players. Coach does decent job with great player running the show.
: : : Roosevelt: terrible coaching, disappointing season. Could be it for Coach.
: : : Santiago: well-coached team. Improved game by game.
: : : Corona: a joke program. Nothing else to say.
: : Very good summary of a good league. King is very well coached and is now a yearly contender. Great program. Cen10 fell apart toward the finishline. It comes with youth and suspect coaching in games. They got humbled. Roosevelt is tough but the coaching is god-awful. Probably an at-large team. Norco has Yim. I didn't see the other teams.
: Interesting analysis. Here's mine. I am not trying to stir the pot at all or disrespect any team in any way. This is just my opinion. Corona will be bad for years to come. There's little to no hope. Santiago will keep improving, especially if Jones attends. Team has some talent and decent coaching. Norco is done after this season. Coach Kirk surprised me. He did much better than epected in my book. Big win vs Centennial and played the top 3 teams tough. Roosevelt is a mess. How he keeps his job is beyond me. In 3 games, I saw him sit and do nothing as his girls crumbled to a slow death. King has grown on me. They are the perfect example of consistency and growth, and now the team to beat in the B8. I don't like the Coach, but he does his job very well. You can tell the girls respect him and play hard for him. Centennial is Centennial. They always have talent but find a way to screw it up somehow at the end. They are young and will be tough again next year. Add a post player and they become much better.
Stop blaming the Coaches. Players win and lose games. Practices are where lots of games are won or lost depending on whether players are listening and executing. The Roosevelt Coach probably does a great job there, but he's not going to bully his players if they don't perform to your expectation. By your standards half of the Coaches in the NBA should be fired cause they have losing records.
