: : : : : : : : : : Hmmmm. Granada Hills loses to Fairfax and everyone rips them. Then they beat Bishop Montgomery, a SS open team and the #1 seed and nobody says anything. Nothing like great job. Well coached team that gets the most out of their talent. A wonderful year. Keep it going. Just like Glendora's success. I am not a GH fan, just a fan of HS basketball in general. This again proves how many disgusting, evil people are on here trolling this site. Waiting to tear people down at the slightest hint of failure. This site does more damage than good.

: : : : : : : : : : Obviously the people who love to destroy, especially teenage girls reputations or success are the profiles of mostly parents. Its so sad. Jealous parents that are angry and put basketball as a top priority, the only priority in their kids lives. They don't allow them to love other things, be well rounded and put education first. Its basketball 100 percent of the time. Go to club tournaments, yell at them, rip them, talk about it for hours after the game, and literally make basketball a job, instead of a game your daughter should enjoy. You scream at officials and blame everyone else when things go wrong, which makes your daughter always have a built in excuse. Your relationship with your child will be damaged years from now when they get older, burn out and can't handle the rigors of everyday life. Do you realize most of the people that give back to the game years later by being educators, getting their degree and coaching, are the ones with positive upbringing. The ones that put education first. That were ripped if they didn't get an A in the classroom. There is no money in women basketball. None. 1 out of 10,000 will make an average living playing oversees or pro. There is a lot of money in an education from basketball and a career somewhere outside of the field or full time teaching and coaching in the field.

: : : : : : : : : : The second profile are those jealous coaches, mostly club that can't pass fingerprints to coach in high school or coach for the money in club. You know them. Life has meaning with the club wins. The ones whose ego is on the line from winning those important club games, not in the development of the kids. The ones who should be really enjoying watching player 10 or 11 to get better so they can go back to their high schools better, more confident players. The ones who actually don't care about winning as much as seeing a child smile and be more comfortable on the court. There are very few of you. You are the second profile of person to come here and tear down.

: : : : : : : : : : There are a few high school coaches like this too. The one's who are not educators first. Who do it for wins instead of making sure the kids remember their experiences for the rest of your life. Yes you should want to win. Everyone does. But that should not be the priority.

: : : : : : : : : : You three are the ones posting all of the negativity on here. If you are reading this and you post the crap on here, things are not positive in your life. Shame on you. You know one of the above profiles fits you. There is still time to change, to do something good for this sport. Try building people up, caring about others and wanting the best for everyone. Its a much better way to live.

: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : Congratulations to GH and all the other schools that are still in it. Sectional semifinals, how sweet. Good luck to all.

: : : : : : : : : To the above poster. If you are a sensitive person then this site isn't for you. You can sometimes tell a discussion by the subject line, don't go in it if you will be offended.

: : : : : : : : Agreed!! Rarely is anything positive said. Parents with no life hiding behind a keyboard waiting to attack. They'd never say the things they say in person. Yes, and congrats to GH and all the others!

: : : : : : : Granada played a decent schedule. Glendora did not. Granada's Coach challenged his players. Glendora did not. Granada is still playing. Glendora is not. Granada Coach prepared his players to play the best and won. Glendora Coach didn't prepare his players to play the best and lost. Case closed.

: : : : : : : Granada Hills is a good team. They played a tough schedule and it has paid off. They got lucky against Bishop Montgomery that #11 was hurt, that made a huge difference, but sometimes you need a little luck to get through. Their next game will be brutal. Ribet is a much different team than the one they beat Arizona. This Ribet has it's starting point guard and its 6'9 post player. We will see if they can pull another win off. But anyone who says that Granada isn't solid is an idiot. They are a loaded team, stacked with talent, and they are well coached....a consistent recipe for going this far in state.

: : : : : Congrats to Granada hills and for those local travel teams where the girl play club basketball, it's great to see these kids doing well against top programs and don't hear about all the elite players from elite Nike and Adidas programs. Great job coaches!! and good luck on your next game Granada.

: : : : No excuses. City teams can compete after all. Kayla Williams came from Pali. Great player BEFORE she got to a SS school. It's all about the coaching and the players - not whether or not you're SS or City. Bishop - simple 2/3 zone might've slowed Granada down some and (hint) if the HELP doesn't come from the trap - then you're just letting the offense make you pay for it - which happened time and time again. How many back door passes did GH execute against you? More than a dozen. Congrats to GH, an extremely well coached group - and great bunch of student-athletes!

: : : To the poster who said that GH was lucky because #11 was hurt, you are incorrect, #11 (Padilla) played pretty much the entire game. GH did not get lucky, they played hard.

: : I was at the game scouting for future playoff games. GH did play hard and stuck to their game plan. Good coaching but Iíll say the talent on the team is mediocre with the exception of their big. BM has more talent but their coaching was poor. GH ran the same plays and BMs coach didnít make any adjustments. Padilla was noticeably a step slower and not as dominating. She was in a boot during the ECR game and left the GH game in a boot. In any case, as an open division team, GH shouldíve been a cake walk. GH wonít get past Ribet next round anyway, so all of this is a moot point.

: They beat Ribet twice already. Ribet is over rated and they got no guards play. All they have is their bigs.

Stop saying Granada beat Ribet twice. They beat them once in Arizona at TOC before all the Ribet players were eligible.

And no I'm not a Ribet parent. I could care less who wins.

I'm just tired of people bringing up summer/fall league wins. They don't count. They are basically glorified scrimmages.

Ribet is so big and they do have a good guard, so I think they should win.

That being said, the Granada coaching is so much better than Ribet, that anything can happen. How BM let Granada run back door after back door I will never know. But I could see the Ribet coaches doing the same thing. And it would certainly help Granada if they get hot from outside to keep away from all the size.

I'm picking Ribet, but in a close game.
