: : : : : : : : : Anyone have any ideas how the Pacific League will shape up this year? Seems to always have competitive games amongst the top 4/5 teams.
: : : : : : : : : Arcadia lost alot from last years team
: : : : : : : : : Burroughs is always tough and has their main girl back
: : : : : : : : : Pasadena has tons of athleticism and a good guard
: : : : : : : : : Crescenta Valley lost some key players
: : : : : : : : : Glendale is still big
: : : : : : : : : Burbank, Muir, and Hoover are probably fighting for last place
: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : 1. Pasadena is the dominant team in this league. So much talent returning along with 3 sit out players of high magnitude. Would be shocked if they lost a game in the league. Only major issue is a question mark on coaching. Maybe the 6th best coach in the league
: : : : : : : : 2. Glendale. They have the best balance other than Pasadena. They are huge and the guards are decent. They are well coached also. They willl fight it out for 2nd.
: : : : : : : : 3. CV and Burroughs tie. Both are well coached and CV has all the guards and shooting and no size. Burroughs has all the size and no guard play. Both are vulnerable but coulee beat Glendale
: : : : : : : : 5. Arcadia- they lost a lot. Poor coaching also. Not sure if they recruited any players back so if they didn't they are 5th
: : : : : : : : 6. Muir- They might be better than usual. If they have a .500 record they should contend in a low division for a CIF title. They have more talent than Burbank
: : : : : : : : 7. Burbank- They play hard but they have zero talent. limited in their skills. Jett is a good coach but you can't get chicken salad out of chicken...
: : : : : : : : 8. Hoover- They are bad. No care at all. Wont come close to winning a game
: : : : : : : Calling the Arcadia coach a poor coach and then calling the Glendale coach who is a complete jackass a good coach has me questioning your league standings.
: : : : : : Anybody that has followed the Pacific League knows that it will come down to the final weeks. Pasadena will lose a game or two and it shouldn’t be a surprise. It would be surprising if the league champ goes undefeated in league play.
: : : : : : Pasadena is loaded and should win outright.. No matter if the coach is good or not. They are only slightly vulnerable before the transfers are eligible, once they are eligible, they could be a borderline Open team. You are also right about Muir, if they can just have a .500 record, they could easily win their CIF division..but they have to get in. So far, they have been scheduling soft to get the wins.
: : : : Pasadena is NOT an open division team or program. They are a D3 team with good players. Win state in little d3 and then you can talk.
: : Obviously you have not seen the team the currently have nor do you know the quality of the three transfers that they are getting. They will have two legitimate 6'1 centers, a 20 plus a game scorer, and four legitimate guards, with another 6'2 off the bench. They beat Palisades without the transfers. As it was said in the post, they will be a BORDERLINE open team. What will keep them from being an open team is their coaching. But the talent is for real. Go watch them
: LMFAO!! Pasadena is a borderline Open team? That's some funny stuff there. Hey mom or dad I know you want to pump your daughter's team up but obviously need to stop smoking weed. I have seen Pasadena and they are not that good and will not be that good with their transfers, sorry. Yes they could be a match-up problem for some of the teams in their division but not ones that can match up with Pasadena's height or athleticism. Besides, Pasadena hasn't beaten anybody good. You mentioned Palisades okay. Palisades is probably the best team in LA City but that's not saying much. Even Palisades coach knows that they are good but not at the level that they were playing at Keppel. Pasadena got blown out by La Jolla Country Day an Open team from San Diego. If Pasadena played LJCD again the results would be the same a 20+ point win for LJCD. Pasadena got blown out by Roosevelt and they are not an Open team but a top 20 team in Division 1 so keep talking. Had Pasadena kept the games close with LJCD and Roosevelt I would agree with you but since they didn't nope. Pasadena is a good team but they will not win Division 2AA in fact they will not make it past the Quarterfinals, just like last season. Take care there mom or dad and I can't wait to see Pasadena again and listen to all of the crying and the whining when Pasadena loses to a Burroughs or another Pacific League team.
Nobody said they are Open with the team they have now. You are correct. They are just a solid 2AA with the team now. What you don't speak of is how the transfers will take them to another level. They have 3 players that averaged a combined 50 ppg at the varsity level. Two guards and an absolute monster post. With them they will be one of the favorites in 2AA with Orangewood, Flintridge Prep and Marlborough. No they aren't an open team but they will be a really powerful team that has zero chance to lose before the quarters or to a league team. Why you are mentioning results from games that already played I have no clue. They are good now. Just good. Not great. In two weeks they will be a top 25 team in SO CAL. PERIOD
