: : : : : : what is everyone break down on the open divsion top 10 teams?
: : : : : : here is what i have but i think things might change after this weeks games are over
: : : : : : 1. Palisade (defending champs)
: : : : : : 2. El camino (knocked out Granada hills last week in league)
: : : : : : 3. Granada hills
: : : : : : 4. fairfax (plays Palisade on 1/20)
: : : : : : 5. Legacy
: : : : : : 6. Narbonne
: : : : : : 8. Eagle rock (beat keppel)
: : : : : : 9. Westchester
: : : : : : 10. Carson
: : : : : 1. Palisades small, still the team to beat
: : : : : 2. El Camino could overthrow Palisades this year forsure
: : : : : 3. Granada Hills consistent team, barely lost to El camino
: : : : : 4. Fairfax transfer has them ready to steal the open
: : : : : 5. Eagle Rock sleeping power in the north-west keppel
: : : : : 6. Narbonne Coach has them rolling
: : : : : 7. Carson coming together and Coach is getting better watch out
: : : : : 8. Garfield best team in the east each year
: : : : : 9. Westchester playing without their top guards
: : : : : 10. Legacy not impressed barely beat Westchester without their best player.
: : : :
: : : : Someone beat to the list this week!
: : : : As usual, I will only do Top 8 as that is who makes Open.
: : : : And realistically, this is a four team race for the ring....
: : : : 1. Palisades - the champ until proven otherwise. Also has best win vs. Troy. Big game at Fairfax on Friday. Chelsey Gipson top player in City.
: : : : 2. El Camino - Seems to have gotten over it's Jeckyl-Hyde ways in the last week. Big win over Granada and cruised past Lynwood. Winning out should get them #2 seed unless Fairfax sweeps Pali or pulls a major upset.
: : : : 3. Fairfax - I put them 3 over GH to avoid league teams from playing in semi's. Played tough schedule. Transfer is legit. Nice win over Bishop Montgomery. Big game vs. Brea tonight. More big games coming up vs. Serra and Sierra Canyon.
: : : : 4. Granada Hills - Very solid as usual. You have to beat them because they won't beat themselves. Weakness is team speed and a really dynamic athlete. Well coached. Seeding problem: best win is against overrated Antelope Valley and only good game left is rematch with El Camino.
: : : : 5. Eagle Rock - on a roll right now but still not up with the big girls above them.
: : : : 6. Carson - glad some other people are starting to notice them. Like the coach and what she is trying to do. May be a little to raw this year.
: : : : 7. Legacy - nice squad and well coached. Don't have the big time players others do, which makes it hard against the Palis, Elco's, etc.
: : : : 8. Narbonne - working hard to get back to the upper echelon. Probably not their year, but looking good for the future.
: : : : Key game of week: Palisades at Fairfax on Friday.
: : : : See you next week!
: : : Fairfax beat Brea by 5 in OT. I think they're ready to take the number one spot. Let's see how things go on Friday.
: : Gipson will carry Pali to another championship, nobody comes close to her skill set. El Camino is so overrated, they will get destroyed by Pali, fax. Granda has the best coach by far so you can never count them out, he knows him so basketball. Nobody else has a chance.
: : One person can't pull a whole team to a championship although I do believe a team can't stop Gipson they can definitely contain her. What happens if Gipson is held to 10, 15 or 20 points? We are looking at a whole new ball game. Teams will most likely have a game plan for Gipson since she is such a great player.
This is city basketball, there isn't a team out there that can contain her. you just need to hope that she has a bad game, and even if she does it might not matter. Fax is the only team that has a chance. Elco doesn't have the guards and their bigs are just average. I don't see anyone, except for possibly fax giving them a game. Let's not forget Pali lost a bunch of girls, they would have run away with the city. They still have the most talent by far.
