: : : : : Big City Section game tonight - Palisades at Fairfax.
: : : : : This game will have impact on City Open seeding, as will ECR @ Granada Hills next week, and Fairfax at Palisades on 2/6.
: : : : : No doubt the City Section will try to split up the four teams when the seeds come out as there are two each from two leagues. They will prefer for league rivals to not meet until the finals if possible.
: : : : : Right now, I have the seedings as:
: : : : : 1. Pali
: : : : : 2. El Camino
: : : : : 3. Fairfax
: : : : : 4. Granada Hills
: : : : : I don't think this will change if:
: : : : : 1) Pali sweeps Fairfax
: : : : : 2) El Camino beats Granada Hills again next Friday.
: : : : : If it ends up that both pairs split their games, then Fairfax might have a chance to jump ECR because it beat Brea. They also have games left vs. Serra and Sierra Canyon, so a win over either of them could do it too.
: : : : : But I believe first priority will be City games, and hard to put a second place team over a league champion.
: : : : : I'm taking Pali tonight; I think Fairfax has problems with a good press, and Pali has one of the best.
: : : : : Who do you have?
: : : : Pali has only 2 scorers and I'm pretty sure Fax has a game plan for them. Also Pali has no size once so ever therefore if the game becomes physical and fax pounds the ball inside Pali has no chance. I'm going for fax on this one plus they have home court advantage.
: : : Please stop with El Camino and Fax, Pali has blasted EL CO in the playoffs by 40 the last two years and fairfax has lost like 8 straight games against pali. el co isn't talented enough to play with Pali. The ONLY team that has a chance of keeping the game close is FAIRFAX. City section is for 2nd place this year. Next yea, when Chelsey leaves for LMU is when Pali will fall back. Until then, good luck.
: : I'm tired of people boosting Pali like they're this all star team ..... they have one good player and the rest are there to make her look good. Pali lost a lot of people so they obviously aren't the team they used to be in the last years. Pali IS NOT this magical team that'll continue to win city every sorry they aren't that good.
: :: No one star player can single-handedly win back-to-back CIF open city championships (maybe three?), no matter how good she is. Obviously Pali has a great supporting cast with talent, plus great coaching. Every year it's the same thing - Pali lost so and so, etc. Yet they still find a way to win. Is it going to be easy? No, of course not. But let's give credit where credit is due. ALL the girls are working hard to develop, on Fairfax and Pali and other teams.
Fairfax has been beating good teams all season with 6 players it sad there still not getting the respect they deserve when they have the strongest schedule.
