: : : : : : : : : : : : Thank you!

: : : : : : : : : : : $8 and about 90 minutes of your time and you could have found out what happened at Redondo and supported girls basketball. Oh well, I guess you had better things to do or you are just lazy. My guess it's the latter. No worries, someone will tell you what you want. It was a great tournament and great, competitive games.

: : : : : : : : : : Some people live very far away and can't come to the game. Some actually have a job and can't work. Some are actually physically incapable. Now we're ready for another dumb ass comment from you.

: : : : : : : : : Bishop Montgomery dismantled Etiwanda. Should not have been that easy. Is it me or does Etiwanda lose every big game. Coach seems in over his head

: : : : : : : : : 3rd place- Another shocker. Windward defeated Redondo by a few points in the final. They did it without Charisma Osborne. People questioned how they would do without her but the opposite of the Etiwanda coach, Nygaard gets her team up for every big game

: : : : : : : : : 5th place- Serra edged Harvard Westlake by 1. They were losing the whole game. I didn't understand why Serra played them zone the whole game with HW being so thin. HW big was in foul trouble. Serra struggles to score. Both teams not open this year

: : : : : : : : : 7th place- Lynwood beat West by 10. Big from Lynwood doesn't play hard. She is the best player in the tourney but is too casual. West is very young and will get better.

: : : : : : : : We appreciate you...itís so many clowns out here in CA who know the game of basketball now itís funny...hilarious even.

: : : : : : : Windward, etiwanda, Bishop Montgomery, sierra canyon, mater dei seem to be only shoe ins for open.
: : : : : : : Redondo right there. Beyond that last two or three spots gonna be taken by.....?

: : : : : : Redondo
: : : : : : LB Poly
: : : : : : Brea
: : : : : : Orangewood
: : : : : : Rosary
: : : : : : Lakeside
: : : : : : Fairmont Prep
: : : : : : Centennial
: : : : : : Alemany
: : : : : : Rolling Hills Prep

: : : : : :
: : : : : : Any team that gets lots of SOPS

: : : : : : Too early to tell

: : : : : Its early but Imma go ahead and call it. Long Beach Poly will not be an open team. Daddy/Mommy ball is in full effect and will be the downfall as it was last season.

: : : : This was a good collection of talent in one tournament with some quality games. I was concerned about some of the "so-called" best players. With that being said I was watching Lynwood and it was a shame what I saw from the big they have. Lack of effort, poor attitude, and did not dominate at any time during the game. The guard from Windward that signed to UCLA is a good player but she also had a bad attitude. Surprised that Coach Nyguard allowed her to speak to her in a disrespectful way, I was just beside myself. Seen a lot of weakness in her game that other teams should exploit. Lack of leadership for Windward is why they are beatable this year. You don't have to agree with me, its just my opinion.

: : : Without Osborne, Windward can barely beat a fairly good Redondo team. I think this is the year things will shift and itís anyoneís game. Any of the open division teams will be contenders.

: : Windward lost Sela Kay from graduation, anyone else from last year's squad they lost? They picked up a big from Beverly, any other additions this year?

: : So they lost to BM, it happens. Just couple of weeks ago Bishop lost to Saint Mary. Bottom line is that it's too early to say they are not the same team as last year or that they are beatable this year. No freakin way, those returning players are more experienced and am sure are even better than last year. You can't sum up how their season will go just from a lost. They are the Open division reigning champion, both Osborne and Corona will not go down without a fight.

: That is fine but if you are as good as they say you are then you are not allowed to make excuses when you lose. Take the L and move on... Osbourne tweeting out like people are sleeping on them lmao. GTFOH everybody still thinks Windward is the team to beat so stop with all of the weird social media tweets, just showing how insecure you are.

I do agree that it is early. Open division will be more competitive this year because several schools have improved a great deal even without their SOP. Windward is the team to beat because they are he reigning state champions and per USA Today, the number 3 team in the nation. But you canít fault teams for getting excited about defeating such a highly ranked team. Osborne is a fantastic player, but the supporting cast is not as strong as other schools. Bishop Montgomery will be playing with a new confidence after defeating two teams that were ranked higher than them, especially after that loss to St Maryís. The Sierra Canyon/Windward game in January will be the one to watch, but I donít think you can count out teams like Etiwanda, Redondo, Mater Dei or Centennial just yet.
