: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Congratulation to Wilson for being named Daily Bulletin player of the year very deserving nice way to end your senior year after being named all CIF open division as well as Baseline League MVP

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Most definitely, the kid is a stud. Etiwanda is a deep well coached squad, ran thru the baseline league with no problems.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : Enjoy the recent success in the Baseline league Etiwanda, you have two teams now positioned to dethrone you, Chino Hills and possibly Los Osos.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : Maybe next year they can do well in CIF
: : : : : : : : : : "Recent success"? Huh?

: : : : : : : : : : Yup, but that's changing next season..

: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : Please stop with the nonsense. Los Osos, has no one. Etiwanda blew them and Chino Hills out.

: : : : : : : : Both teams have D1 players on the rise, you'll see..

: : : : : : Only Buckner has a chance at D1 and she needs to improve a great deal to get there unless she's going D1AA NCAA

: : : : : : Not true! Both Osos and Chino Hills have multiple D1 players. Just watch next season.

: : : : Multiple D1 players? No.

: : : : If you haven't learned anything about recruiting, let me school you. D1 coaches look for players who either A) are long, lanky, and athletic, B) are phenoms who prove they're head and shoulders above everyone, or C) are sheer physical freaks.

: : : : Buckner has a chance because she meets criteria A, but she has to prove that she can perform against top talent. She's on WCP Black, so she'll have a chance to do so this summer. Other than her, Okonkwo has a chance based on name, and Ha could slide in if her development continues. Chino Hills only has Wu, and she will get looks based on her height, but like Buckner, she has to prove herself against top competition. If she can't, she's DII or NAIA at best.

: : : : Ok, some valid points, however I believe those kids you mentioned from Osos, along with Wu and the PG from Chino Hills will go D1. They both dominated against top competition..

: : So then lets break it down, just to show how off you are on some of your assumptions.

: : Buckner has the best chance. Having played on 5A and 3A teams hurts her chances because she's playing high level against bad competition. The two games against Etiwanda, she was held below her season average and her team was blown out. She has to perform at the same pace against great competition, so she has to show out over the summer with WCP Black or she'll be low D1 or DII. Neither are bad options.

: : Ha and Okonkwo are freshman, but they haven't played high level competition yet. Osos will move up decidedly this year, and that's great for their chances.

: : Wu meets the same criteria A I mentioned earlier, but also hasn't done anything against high level competition. Her best scoring output this past year was against a 5-21 South Hills teams, so that one goes to the wayside. Her 2nd best game was against Alta Loma, with a 24 point performance. I don't know Wu's rebounding numbers for that game, but I see on Maxpreps that Parker from Alta Loma had 24 points and 18 rebounds that game. Unless Wu matched or exceeded that, she was outplayed. If all the other games were worse than those two, I don't see how she performed well against top competition.

: : I don't know what PG you're talking about. None of of the Chino Hills PGs averaged double digits. That's not performing well against top competition, or even lower level competition, so that's not D1 material.

: : Wu totally dominated and outplayed Parker that game. Wu and Serrono are poised to take League next season. I think a lot of people are going to be shocked at how they will dominate league.

: The 3 from Osos are young and on the rise as well but I get it that they played in lower divisions as well..

Ah. So now that I know you're a Chino Hills parent, I know how to address this.

Chino Hills has a 0% chance to win league. Los Osos returns their core of Buckner, Ha, Okonkwo and Van Soest. Etiwanda still has their press and athletes galore from the Summit transfer to run Chino Hills out of the gym. And Upland is pulling even. So I can't see any Baseline titles in the forseeable future for Chino Hills.

For the rest...In basketball terms, totally outplaying an opponent would mean that you destroyed them statistically or made them a nonfactor in the game. Based on stats alone, Wu didn't dominate or outplay Parker. Based on what I know, Wu is 6'1 and Parker is 5'8, and both played center for their respective teams. A dominant 6'1 player shouldn't let a 5'8 player get 24 and 18 on them when both are playing in the post.

As far as Serrano goes...D1? Hardly. 5'1 PGs are too small for D1. Please stop drinking Herb and Stan's kool-aid.
