Here are some early impressions for teams I've watched these first few weeks. No individual names, just team thoughts.
Mater Dei: obv team talent way down vs years past. Losses to Serra, HW, Etiwanda.
Not an open team this year but prob get stuck in there.
Foothill: not very good so far. Has some shooters but not much else. Not able to get anything inside the 3 pt line.
HB: two decent seniors but no reliable playmaker or real inside threat.
If those two struggle, not much else.
Fairmont: same team more or less, waiting on one transfer I heard. Good team, senior leaders, always a force.
Orangewood: should keep improving, fairly solid. Lost to a well coached North Torrance team
Marina: work in progress. No major talent.
Los Alamitos: talented but offense looks like players going one on all game. Relies on turnovers but otherwise defense not great.
Woodbridge: looks kind of slow. Guard play mediocre.
Edison: looked pretty solid with some guard play and a fairly big team
Only saw Brea in an early season practice game, hard to tell.
It's early and teams are all trying to find their identities to some degree so who knows.
These are just my own thoughts after watching a bunch of games in various tournaments so far.
