Of the big games this week, Westchester beat Palisades, Granada held off El Camino, and Westchester cruised by Hamilton. Birmingham beat Cleveland, but due to PG injury, Cleveland has really fallen off.

Based on that, here is where I see the Open Division as of today:

1. Granada Hills - Top seed locked up even if Birmingham pulls off an incredible upset on Friday.
2. Westchester - Pretty much settled in as 2 seed.
3. Narbonne - Winning league should give them edge over ECR.
4. El Camino - could have won last night but didn't, so most likely headed for a 4 seed and yet another semi's match up with Granada.
5. Eagle Rock - I like Hamilton here, but Eagle Rock will be undefeated league champ so will probably get 5.
6. Hamilton - Blowout at hands of Westchester probably is going to send them to Narbonne in opening round.
7. Birmingham - They can argue for 6, as they play a tough schedule. Either way, they would be in tough vs. Narbonne or Westchester.
8. Palisades/Legacy - This should probably go to Legacy, but they have played a horrible schedule. I don't think either one wants this spot as a trip to Granada Hills is the reward.

Overall, a pretty solid field. If this holds, the potential semi-finals will be good games. Even the consolation rounds look to be entertaining.

One more update either Friday or Saturday will final predictions.

Looking forward to thoughtful, civil discussion on this list.
