: : : : Here is a stab at potential Open list.
: : : : Still big game with Windward and Sierra Canyon tonight, so hard to do a seeding list.
: : : : So in no particular order...
: : : : LBP
: : : : Etiwanda
: : : : Windward
: : : : Sierra Canyon
: : : : Alemany
: : : : Harvard Westlake
: : : : Serra
: : : : Mater Dei
: : : : Chaminade
: : : : Brea
: : : : Ventura
: : : : Fairmont Prep
: : : : Valencia
: : : : Troy
: : : : ML King
: : : : Orangewood Academy
: : : : This would be a great year to take 12, but I just don't think they want to do that.
: : : : Guess we will see this afternoon.
: : : I think Lakeside and Millikan get in over ML King and Brea from your list
: : : Out from the current watch list
: : : King
: : : Brea
: : : Orange Lu
: : : Antelope Valley
: : Re: Millikan and Lakeside
: : My question is who is their big win?
: : I don't believe either one of them has a win over a Top 50 team.
: : They have good records, especially Lakeside, but in NCAA terms, no "signature win".
: : Some of the other bubble teams do.
: : Chaminade beat Harvard Westlake.
: : Valencia beat Alemany.
: : I'm just kicking this around for discussion.
: : There doesn't seem to be any actual written criteria that they follow.
: I agree Lakeside has not big win but I was at the game against Etiwanda and they hung with them the whole game not only that but the past success that whole team from last year that lost in the state title game basically came back ...I don't know much about millikan so I wont comment
my reasoning about Lakeside had a lot to do with the single digit loss to Etiwanda. If you can hang with Etiwanda to single digits and only have 3 losses on the year (despite no signature wins), I think you can play in the Open and deserve a spot.
Millikan has a 15 point win over Orangewood Academy who is on the Watch List. How can Orangewood get a spot and not Millikan who beat them by 15. They get killed by Poly but they lost in Overtime to Harvard Westlake. If we are just looking at 16 best, I think they should be in.
Brea 19 point loss to Orangewood Academy, close loss to Fairmont Prep.
King also no signature wins, great record but no Open division opponents to even compare them to.
