: : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : #1 HW vs. #8 Serra --- HW, Twins plus new freshman will be too much to handle for Serra. HW by double digits

: : : : : : : : : : #2 Windward vs #7 Bishop Montgomery --- Windward, BM don't have anyone to contain Osborne. If they go zone, perimeter shooters will light them up. Windward by double digits.

: : : : : : : : : : #3 Mater Dei vs #6 Ribet --- MD, will be an eye opener for Ribet who's been adamant the entire season that they belong. MD solid half court defense specially around the paint will be key. MD by double digits.

: : : : : : : : : : #4 Sierra Canyon vs #5 Etiwanda --- SC, this could go either way depends on guards play from Sierra. Whether they play as a team with plenty of ball movements or they get into coast to coast hero ball. Sierra by 5.

: : : : : : : : : : Let's hear it.

: : : : : : : : : Some great match-ups in this year's Open Division playoffs. Usual suspects, with newcomers Ribet and Bishop Montgomery.

: : : : : : : : : I think all 8 of these teams will bring their best game, hoping for an upset to keep things interesting.

: : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : Serra is coming off 2 straight losses and I predict Alexis Tucker will wake up and lead her team to a close game against HW. I think the match up between her and the HW twin is a good one.

: : : : : : : : : Bishop Montgomery is in a good rhythm and has greatly improved since the last time they met with Windward in one of their first games of the season. BM guard - Williams and Padilla - are legit. Game result will depend on if the rest of the Montgomery squad can step up. Osborne and Corona are no joke. I predict a close game with Windward running away with it.

: : : : : : : : : Mater Dei/Ribet game will be the most interesting. Mater Dei has yet to face any top tier competition and biggest wins are against lower level teams. Loaded team, but will they be enough to contain Ribet's dominant bigs and strong guard play? I predict MD will take it, but I think Ribet will give them a good game.

: : : : : : : : : Agree on Sierra Canyon/Etiwanda. Game will come down to the wire.

: : : : : : : : : Good luck to all!

: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : My prediction, Ribet takes game 1 and 2. Face winner of SC/HW for Open Championship. Then all the haters will cry foul.

: : : : : : : We wanted her to compete with the best of SS had to offer no matter what happens we are happy with the Results.

: : : : : : : Ribet strength is their coaching. 1st season at Ribet and he took this 2A Team straight to Open Division. Their weakness is their backcourt. Ribet will be lost once MD start pressing.

: : : : : Ribet coaching is not good if it was then they'd take the Open with all the talent they have.

: : : : :None of these schools are in the Open. Can't remember the last time that happened. Rumors might be true that these programs are cutting back on aids.

: : : Alemany down because Archer is out and people playing out of position. Players are not coming not because they don't give $$ but Comacho isn't there anymore.

: : : Chaminade has always been stingy for (non-football) money, but it is worse now. Almost made Open this year with only five really solid players and no one in the Higgins/Odom mold.

: : : Oaks stop giving out tons of non-football money a couple years ago. When the Katie Campball class graduated, there wasn't the young talent back-filling.

: : : But in the end, remember two things. There has only been open division for a couple of years so it isn't like this is a huge shock. They used to be in 4AA. And now Open is down to 8 teams. Hard to make it now.

: : Alemany,Chaminade,and LB can still beat anybody in open at any giving day and too bad they cut it to 8 teams this year.

:
: OMG why don't you focus playing on DIV1. Open you guys were not good enough you still have a chance on a banner stop thinking of the good old days work on today

They are still ok, just not in the Open category as the top 8.

There's no shame on that. Be happy atleast you guys are not in the Div 5.
