: Now that the season is a little over a month away what are the top team to look at to be in the open division?

: 1. Narbonne
: 2. Granada
: 3. Westchester
: 4. El camino
: 5. Carson
: 6. Hamilton
: 7. Legacy
: 9. Eagle rock
: 10.Birmigham

1. Granada Hills
2. Narbonne
3. El Camino
4. Westchester
5. Fairfax
6. Carson
7. Birmingham
8. Legacy

Love them or hate them, Granada puts in the work. They play together pretty much year around. People buy in to their roles. They have the best big and the best shooter. They are playing tough comp in summer/fall. This weekend they are playing in a showcase and are playing Long Beach Poly and Mater Dei. No other city teams are trying this hard.

That being said, I think Narbonne can give them (and everyone) problems with their pressure and athleticism. And that has been Granada's weakness - and that was with Mitchell. So they are even more vulnerable now.

At this point, I would expect the finals to come down to them.

To me the wild card is ECR. They are going to take their lumps in the preseason for sure. But come the new year when the transfer from Chaminade is eligible, look out. She will be the best player in the Section. If they can effectively work her in and maximize her abilities, they have a shot.

Westchester, Fairfax and Carson all have some nice pieces, but I don't think they have the depth of talent to challenge the other three.

Kind of the opposite with Birmingham and Legacy; I see them as having good players, but not enough "very good" players.

Eagle Rock lost too much, and though I keep hearing about Hamilton, until they beat someone good, I'm not a believer.

Here is to a fun season with no injuries!
