: : : : : : : Top 5 city teams for 2017 year:
: : : : : : : 1) Fairfax (clear cut favorite)
: : : : : : : 2) Granada
: : : : : : : 3) Narbonne
: : : : : : : 4) El Camino
: : : : : : : 5) Palisades
: : : : : : Why is Fairfax the clear cut favorite?
: : : : : : They have one of the top players coming back. But they had a small roster this year and graduate four including their 1/1A player. And who is coaching?
: : : : : : Granada has most of their team back, including best player (Mitchell). They are definitely in the mix.
: : : : : : Narbonne at 3? I see them as getting better, but how can you put them at three? El Camino, for whatever reason hated here, brings back their entire team. So why would Narbonne suddenly jump them (unless you know of some super transfer?)?
: : : : : : Palisades will still be good. Someone besides Williams will have to learn to score - for that matter learn to take shots - but they still have talent.
: : : : : : My early prediction:
: : : : : : 1) Granada
: : : : : : 2) ECR
: : : : : : 3) Palisades
: : : : : : 4) Fairfax
: : : : : : 5) Narbonne
: : : : : : And this is all pure guess at this point until we see who actually is in school come September.
: : : : : Fax has their best player coming back, she will probably be city player of the year. They have the freshman that is a future d1 player and some good role players. They are clearly the fav.
: : : :
: : : : It may turn out that way, but as of now, you can't say that.
: : : : First of all, who is coaching?
: : : : Lair is great, but part of what made her so great this year (and especially in the playoffs) was driving and dishing to Semebene. Or Semebene getting offensive board off a missed drive. She won't have her next year. Also, their top shooter graduated. The frosh may be a "future D1 player" but that isn't next year.
: : : : So while Fairfax may end up on top next March, hard to predict that now when other quality teams return most/all of their players.
: : : : And again, let's see who actually is in school next September and how much they have improved over the spring/summer.
: : : I think granada is the favorite next year,El camino don't have a coach but should finish 2nd and thats if they don't have players leaving again, fairfax 3rd and pali 4th
: : Fairfax didn't lose their best shooter, she was a role player. the freshman will be one of the best players in the city next season, off the charts potential and talent. Elco has no chance of winning city, I actually think Pali will be better than el co next year. It's coming down to fax and granada.
: >>>>>>> Best player (Mitchell) Get out of here with that. There is way more better PGs than than that. Are you serious??? LOL
My comment was that Mitchell is Granada's best player. But she will be All-City this year and next. And for what they do, she is very effective.
As for Fairfax, the shooter girl that graduated (with the goggles?) was their best role player. She did a little of everything for them.
And this frosh (who sounds like your daughter) may turn into a great player. Time will tell. But right now, she and Lair are not enough to win City next year.
And again, as of now, ECR returns everyone, so they won't go away.
And stop sleeping on Palisades. Williams is to me the best player in City next year, and they still have pieces.
This really should be tabled until September.
But the top 4 are definitely GH/ECR/Fairfax/Pali in some order.
