: : : : : : Well, the worst kept secret was finally announced today - Torino resigned at Pali to take an assistant job at Cal State LA. Congrats to him.

: : : : : : Kayla Williams supposedly on her way to Bishop Montgomery. And the other guard left too.

: : : : : : So - who will be new coach?

: : : : : Pali Charter is a great school, certainly the best LAUSD school in the general area. Basketball is one thing but academics is another.

: : : : : : Will Nwaba follow the others out the door?

: : : : : : The dynasty is over - for now. No doubt they will be back contending in a couple of years. Who doesn't want to go to school by the beach?

: : : : Worst kept secret is right. It's going to take Pali a few years to regroup. They lost too much talent the last couple of years to compete this season. Too good of a location for them to be down for too long. New coach is going to take his/her lumps for a couple of years.

: : : : Dynasty??? Dynasty of getting knocked off in the 1st round of State year after year, lol

: : : But then again, that is the case for all City teams, lol

: : :: You're ALL getting knocked off in state

: Getting knocked off in State is not the end of the world. Two years ago, they played Chaminade (who won State Open) in the first round.

: The issue is, City sends teams to too high a division.

: They send Open playoff winner to Open State, but the reality is they should be Div 1. Last year Fairfax was not an Open State team.

: And it filters down.

: If Fairfax and Pali go to Div 1 last year, then Granada and Elco go to Div 2. And I guarantee you one or more of those teams wins a game or two.

: But City keeps thinking they have to compete with SS. They would rather have teams in higher divisions rather than win games in divisions they should actually be in.

:: Personally I'd rather my girl LOSE in the state OPEN, than win in Div 1 or II. It's not about "getting a trophy". It's about competing (and even losing) to the BEST of the best. Several times my daughter got more notice from college coaches in games that she LOST
