: : : : : : : I heard el camino and granada hills played chaminade at viewpoint yesterday
: : : : : : : did anyone see the game? and how did they do?

: : : : : : Both Nade and El Camino were down a couple of starters. Chaminade came out strong and built big halftime lead. Rodriguez on fire draining open 3's in first half for Nade. El Camino cranked up their defense and rebounding and outplayed Nade in second half. But too little too late. Nade won by 11.

: : : : : : In second game, Granada was down starting big, but early on it didn't matter as their press pushed the pace and it bothered Chaminade. Granada up like 12 at half. Second half Chaminade chipped away at lead and forced overtime. Nade by 1 in overtime.

: : : : : : General impressions:

: : : : : : Chaminade - will still be solid with full team, but loss of Iwahashi to knee injury will hurt them, especially they will miss her speed. Playing Whitfield at PG is interesting. Moore looks more engaged in middle. Rodriguez can hit 3's in bunches if left open. Hit like 5 against ECR but struggled a bit shooting against Granada.

: : : : : : El Camino - hardly look like the unit of last year. New coach means new systems and they don't look comfortable. They didn't press until the last minute which is very un-ECR. Offense doesn't look fluid. Hamilton can't get open shots because of bad spacing. No one is helping Jacks on the boards. Thought Saidoff was a bright spot. Playing with more confidence and composure. Have to see how the rest of the summer goes for this squad.

: : : : : : Granada - Granada is...Granada. Some new players, same efficiency. Big girl from all-star game is big and can board, but she is slow and can be neutralized by pushing pace. Mitchell still calmly runs team and gets the ball where it needs to be. Jumper better too. Miranda a big piece for them as she is their most athletic player and she wasn't there. A couple of girls from the JV team last year looked pretty good. Granada one of the few schools that develops players on JV who contribute at varsity level.

: : : : : : Obviously early, but by November all three should be Top 10 in area, but probably not Top 5.

: : : : : El Camino has the most overrated talent in all of LA. The girls are average at best. They will win nothing. Granada has a much better coach and team.

: : : : Granada was stump by CalStorm freshmen team in April at Balboa Hills tournament, lost by like 30+ points.

: : : Not that its a big difference but if you are going to make a comment be sure to get correct facts. It was the 15u cal storm National team and it was 21 points.

: : : That's a big lost specially to a freshmen team. Maybe they were missing starters or didn't play that hard since it was a summer/spring ball. They supposed to be good right?

: There is no shame losing to Cal Storm National. That team is loaded with D1 talent. Their guards are good and fast. And Whitfield from Chaminade is on that team and she is better/more athletic than the Granada wings. And Cal Storm National has great 6-2 center from up North that is a STUD.

: That Cal Storm team will beat 90% of high school teams in So Cal. For that matter, so will the WCP 15U.

: And as for Granada, yes they are good. Top 10 in the SFV/SCV.

not fair or accurate to compare a national club team, where only the best players are chosen to play- to a hs team. i'm sure the 15 cal storm national team would beat some of the best private HS teams. and that national team is not all freshman, a few sophs and a hold back or 2
