: : : : : Anyone at the game? Padilla play?

: : : : I was there and GH was the better team that night. Padilla did play, but seemed to be off and struggled to get into her usual rhythm due to her injury. After Bishop Montgomery barely getting past another City team in El Camino Real, it shows that the Bishop Montgomery team is too dependent on just one star player and when that player is unable to play or is limited due to being hurt, all of their weaknesses are exposed. Bishop Montgomery had several chances to grab the game and did have several runs late in the game, but hats off to Granada for staying composed and responding with great playing and coaching.

: : : :: Exactly right. WHY the Bishop coach chose to alternate between Padilla and Williams is puzzling. They made the runs - but GH responded every time to hold them off. The coaching by GH was exceptional. Things starting to trend negatively? "BLEEP" Time out. He nips stuff in the bud...and it payed off.

: : :Why are we still talking about Granada? Didn't chaminade take them out? Didnt Bishop Montgomery take them out? What's really going on here? Last time I checked Granada won 10 out of the last 12 National Academic Decathalons. The charter doesn't care about sports deemed"xtra curricular after school activities". So how is it that a public school with"mediocre"talent is playing tomorrow night while your daughters are at club practice? Doesn't make any sense. They take out 2 "top notch" open teams and still get no respect. I thought only D1 bound private school players had this luxury of playing so late in the season. Whether they win or lose tomorrow Granada has exceeded all expectations. Good luck girls and remember everything from here on out is icing on our cake.

: ^^ Think this poster said it all! Win or lose GH took out 2 respected programs that carry D1 athletes. like it or not this "city" team has some great players and great coaching. Congrats to all the girls and coaches, what a great season. Good luck!

GH was clearly the more composed, smarter team with better coaching. I hope they do go far and prove that city section schools can compete. But from a girls basketball veteran, I think on both wins, they caught the opponents on bad days not because they are more skilled. GH did win and that should be celebrated, but there are no D1 college players on that team and although these high school wins are fantastic, a college scholarship is the ultimate goal. Good luck to all!
