: : : Who do you think has a shot at taking this Division?
: : : Fairmont Prep will take this division. They've done a good job keeping a low profile this season.
: This is actually a good division with several really good if not great (this year) teams.
: Chaminade, if healthy, can win this. DiMuro is doing a really good job this year with basically 5 players.
: Long Beach Poly, while not the team of the last few years, is still super-athletic can beat anyone on a given day.
: Brea has been really solid despite the outflux of their best player and also the PG. Of the top 4, I think they are the longest shot.
: Canyon has a really strong duo with Bowers and the PG and a couple solid role players. Issue they may have is if the come up against a really athletic teams that can wear them out, especially Bowers, who basically plays every minute of competitive games.
: Alemany is always a threat, but I'm not sure the coaching is up to the bright lights of deeper rounds of the playoffs. I would make them favorites if Archer was available though.
: West could do damage, but I heard Jones is hurt. If that is true they won't go far.
: If Santa Barbara can get by Chaminade in the second round, they may surprise. Gordon gets the headlines, but Jimeniz is the one who makes that team go.
: Ventura is still solid, with 2 good guards and a beast in the post in Henderson. Unfortunately, Long Beach Poly in the second round is a bad match-up - athletic and more depth. Ventura only plays 6, and four starters really never come out.
: My pick to win it all is Long Beach Poly.
: My pick is Canyon. Many teams have a real difficult time matching up with them due to their size and strength.
