: : : : : : : Preseason Girls Top 10 - City Section
: : : : : : You clearly havenít seen any city section teams play and are just guessing. Your rankings arenít close. Stop assuming a program is still good because of their name and past and actually go watch city section girls basketball. Thanks
: : : : : City Section games we attended last year or teams we saw play:
: : : : : Legacy Tournament
: : : : : Carson
: : : : : Westchester
: : : : : Mark Keppel tourney - (eagle rock and a venice I believe)
: : : : : Hamilton vs Palisades @ hamilton
: : : : : Palisades and a few others in burroughs tourney
: : : : : Arleta and several others in El Camino Real Tourney
: : : : : Elco vs GH Charter (2)
: : : : : Just to name a few.
: : : : Yes LAST YEAR. Itís a whole new year and all these teams look different then when you saw them. You should contact the Eagle Rock coach and see if he agrees with you that they are an open team this year JUST BECAUSE they have been strong in the past. Thatís just one example
: : : When doing a preseason poll, yes there are several factors that go into play and being a perrenial power definitely weighs in on the conversation at the end of the day. You don't have to see a team to get an idea of whether or not they will grow from last. Unless a team has lost players to transfers, common sense will tell you that. We also look at how many players are returning, travel ball circuit buzz, popscout datatbase of over 300 games over the past 10 years, and other factors such as coaching, academics, and in coming freshmen. So yeah it's not just one factor. Hope this clarifies things for you.
: : I love what you do PopScout, but Insider is correct you have to watch some Summer League games and fall league games because all these teams are playing in summer and fall leagues. Eagle Rock will be rebuilding this year they lost their twins that transferred out to Pasadena High School.
: : Santa Monica college, west la college, Serra, keppel , long beach city college are few fall league that are runnjng on wekeends.
: Your ďPre season rankingsĒ should be based on what you have seen in the summer and fall so far. Clearly, you havenít done your homework.
Popscout needs to keep doing what heis doing! Love folloeing him and at least he creates buzz and conversation. You may not agree with him, but at least he gets girls names out there and tills us in on the up and coming teams and talents. Iím a big follower and love his posts. He is doing more for our girls game than anybody else. You can disagree , but at least do it with some backing, not telling him how bad he is. Heís creating conversation. Be a productive part of it. Love to hear all opinions and why.
