: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Well I was on my way to the wrong Burroughs, past Palmdale but realized as I was on the 5 North that my GPS was going to the wrong school. I got there a little late for the 8am game. I did not get a chance to see where the other gym was as I was only in the main gym.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Also, I tried to get personal points from the table but they do not keep them and they don't keep track of names. I at least wanted to post leading scorers.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 8am- Sierra Canyon vs Camarillo. This was a very entertaining game. Sierra Canyon is very good and super quick. They have athletes and are led by their guards. Camarillo has good guard play. I forgot to write down the final score but Sierra Canyon won by about 8. I may be a little off but I think it was 57-49.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 9am- I was very impressed with Arleta. They had no trouble with Alhambra. I have never heard of this school but they have good size. This is a sleeper team to keep your eye on. Arleta 48 Alhambra 15

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 10am- Camarillo vs Brentwood. Based on what I saw earlier Camarillo was out of gas. Brentwood won by double digits. Brentwood is also very quick and shot the lights out this game. Brentwood 57 Camarillo 39

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 11am- This was a shocker. Van Nuys beat Brentwood 41 40. Van Nuys impressed me. Brentwood looked out of gas. Im not sure why teams play two games in a row. They definitely didn't shoot like they did vs Camarillo.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 12pm- Good solid teams. Marlborough 34 Burroughs 29. This was a defensive battle. Lots of half court play. Burroughs has size and the Marlborough the guards. I enjoyed this one.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : I WILL POST UPDATES OF THE LATER GAMES.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : And that is why fall league doesn't matter and you are wasting your time. Why do teams play two games in a row? Because it is a great way to see what you have. Play a challenging game and then a game where you have to play everyone. Maybe Ms. Hartledge you should find something else to do with your time if you don't know anything about basketball just like 99% of the parents and fans on this site. You all have no clue about basketball and it shows. Oh and I hope the water was cold at Burroughs.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : Betsy it is very sweet of you to attend games. However fall league isnít that important, thatís why individual stats arenít kept. Also many of the teams are not playing full squads regular season rotations. For example Brentwood sat there best players the whole second games. That gave opportunities for the freshman and bench players to get experience. Burroughs did play with their best player however they were missing the starting guard, her sub and starting forward. I Sierra Canyon were giving players that will most likely play garbage minutes lots of playing time. These are just few examples of why fall league is not that critical for most teams.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : True except most aren't playing all their players, they seem to be giving most minutes to their starters. Even Sierra Canyon, when I saw them a couple of weeks ago, did not play 3 or 4 of their players AT ALL, not 1 second.

: : : : : : : : : : : : Sierra Canyon didn't even have all of their starters. Can't play them if they aren't there.

: : : : : : : : : : : When I saw them a couple weeks ago, all starters there, Chevalair, girl from Ribet, big blonde, DeJesus, girl from Village, and she did not play 3 or 4 from her bench.

: : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : Both teams wanted to win that game and it came down to coaching and Granada has a great looking team that will make some noise this season.

: : : : : : : : : Sierra can even it out when they meet again in January but for now, GH 1, Sierra 0. Who said Fall league is no fun, lol

: : : : : : : : The Same thing Happen with Ribet last year when the season is on the line Granada chokes I am referring to Quarter finals to State

: : : : : : : LOL!!! the same happened to Sierra canyon vs. Ribet academy!!! they beat them at home and choke in the playoffs against Ribet LOL!!!
: : : : : : : Granada is looking good and playing great team ball. hope Sierra can do the same.

: : : : : : Any team that makes it to the quarter finals of the state playoffs cannot be considered a choke. Just a stupid statement.

: : : : : City team, or any team for that matter, making it to state quarter finals in Division 1 is far from a choke!! Had to get past a lot of great teams to get there. People making these posts are a joke. These are great teams with girls playing their hearts out. Good for GH getting the win against a powerhouse like Sierra. No doubt Sierra is a great team and will go far this year.

: : : : I am still waiting for Granada Hills to actually win a CIF-City Championship above Division 2. Until that happens, Granada Hills can't be considered a great team because they can't win a CIF Championship in the pathetic City Section. Also this coach can win the big game when there is something on the line. He usually chokes. Just look at every year he has been the coach. He can never coach to win the big game. Granada Hills benefited from one of Bishop Montgomery's kids being injured in state if not Granada Hills season would have ended in the 2nd round. But you all will call me hater and a liar when it is the truth. Granada Hills is a good team but they are far from being great. Greatness is reserved for teams and coaches that know how to win championships.

: : : LOL!!! as long as Winward is there Sierra Canyon will have a hard time getting a ring also and Elco is not as good as last year and they should finish 2nd again.

: : POS- so you are saying a team is Only great if they win championships?! SO a team like Sierra Canyon is not "great"? A team like Bishop Montgomery is not "great"! You apparently are quite clueless and perhaps need a new hobby other than hanging out on here trying to spread your "knowledge" because it is quite lacking. these are all great teams. They can't all win and they can't all have good days. Even a team like GH, a city team, to go that far beating out the likes of Nade and BM, is pretty darn good.

: Bishop Montgomery has won a CIF-SS Championship. They have won 3 in the last 5 years. Sierra Canyon won 3 straight state championships. Yes it was Division 5 but they still beat way better teams than Granada Hills plays in the pathetic City Section. Maybe you should do some research before you speak. Granada Hills won a Division 2 City Championship back in 2013. Its been awhile and it wasn't against the best in the City Section either. Just face it Granada Hills isn't a great team. Once again, they have never won a game when it matters. Look at the coach's history. He chokes!! Plain and simple. Let's see what Granada Hills would do against Windward. Mind you a Windward that is returning their best players. Nygaard wouldn't even have to break a sweat against Granada Hills. Windward would cruise to a 20 point victory with Osbourne sitting on the bench for most of the second half. Don't get me wrong Granada Hills is a good team but they are nowhere as good as the teams in the Southern Section. Granada Hills if they were in the Southern Section last year would have lost in the 2nd round of Division 1. Hell Redondo Union would have beaten Granada Hills by 20+. So keep trying to spin my words because last I checked Sierra Canyon, Windward, Chaminade, Bishop Montgomery, Fairfax, Palisades all have multiple championship banners hanging in their gyms. Granada Hills just has one and it was down in Division 2 against inferior competition. Its okay maybe one day the Granada Hills coach won't choke in the big game and Granada Hills will get their championship. Maybe this year!! Especially with how watered down and horrible the City Section is this year. The City Section is a complete joke.

There are like 600 teams in the Southern Section. The top City teams from the last few years - Pali, Fax, GH, Elco - would be in the top 30 or 40 at worst. Are they as good as the Windwards, Mater Deis, and Harvard Westlakes of the world? No. But few are. The fact remains they all can compete with and sometimes beat those top teams.

And while I could care less about these fall league scrimmages, I do applaud those City teams that go out of their way in the regular season to play the top SS teams, win or lose, rather than just beating up on the lower end City teams.

Meanwhile, thanks to the stupid SS .500 rule, you get a lot of SS teams actively trying to schedule down (and won't play top City teams) to ensure a playoff bid.

Why not just lay off everyone and let the kids play and enjoy their high school careers? It goes way too fast. Can't you find anything positive to say?
