: : : : Congrats to the lady lions and coach Judi Edwards for overcoming a 20 point 3rd quarter deficit and sending her into retirement with another city championship!! She coached a perfect second half, hat's off to her and her team, they never quit. Next year they should be the favorite to repeat... 2017/18 1) Fairfax 2) Narbonne 3) Granada 4) Elco 5)westchester or pali.

: : : With all the lackluster games on Saturday, this one was crazy. Very entertaining and exciting. Certainly worth the drive and entry $$!
: : : Game was going pretty much as I expected, with Pali doing what they do and building a lead.
: : : However, Lair wouldn't be denied and just kept driving, driving, driving and either getting to the bucket, getting fouled, or making a nice pass for a bucket or foul.
: : : Meanwhile, Pali just kept depending on Gipson and Williams to just jumpers or maybe the odd drive to the bucket.
: : : The shocking thing was Pali was stubborn and would not switch to a zone to prevent or at least slow down the continual drives and make Fairfax beat them from the outside - and Fax was not making outside shots.
: : : Someone please explain why Pali made ZERO adjustments in the second half?????
: : : And I was absolutely SHOCKED when Gipson missed 4 straight FT's. I don't think she missed 4 all year. LOL
: : : Congrats to Fairfax. They created a bad match up for Pali and they didn't adjust. Fairfax really played their hearts out!
: : : Good luck to all the City teams in State - they will all need it.
: : : Hard to see any of them coming close to a win.
: : : Teams are too high, especially in comparison to the SS.
: : : Should be:
: : : Open - none
: : : D1 - Fairfax and Palisades
: : : D2 - Granada Hills and ECR
: : : D3 - Narbonne, Legacy, Eagle Rock
: : : D4 - Carson, Westchester, Venice
: : : D5 -
: : surprised no adjustments were made in the second half by Pali, they shouldn't have lost that game.
: Here is the order the city section will be in state
: Open - Fairfax
: D1 -Palisades, El Camino, Granada Hills and Narbonne
: D2 - Carson, Legacy, Eagle Rock
: D3 - Westchester, Venice
: D4 - torres and cleveland
: D5 - Vaughn and Valor Academy
You are correct on your chart based on what happened when brackets were released.
I was pointing out how it should be to make the City teams competitive, which is what SS does.
Unfortunately, the City teams will be beaten badly.
