: : : : : Where are the “pasadena has four d1 girls and is open team “ supporters? Lost to village christian and burroughs in january. Looking as ridiculous as “santa monica is open team” supporters. Get out of the bubble and see real D1 girls play and the top schools. Big difference when playing good competition.
: : : : If their best players were playing they would be a D1 team
: : : If my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle
: : Its pretty hard when the LEAGUE PLAYER OF THE YEAR hasn't played along with another starting guard one game in league. How can you make a judgement without a full deck. Injuries are part of the game but they are still doing well and going to win a solid league without them. There can be no comment on how they are. Thats like comparing apples to oranges. If they had their full team they would be a top team in 2AA. Without they are just good. Period
: I place them somewhere in the middle of the Open division at full squad. But their highly recruited top D1 player wasn't playing. Once at full squad and everyone's 100 you all will see what's it's all about. For now, go on and continue hating.
: I have seen Pasadena many times this season and here is their situation. They lost to some big time teams early in the season when their transfers were not playing. That being the 6'2 girl from Muir and the two guards from Eagle Rock...all are legit starters for them. Then, once league started, their leading scorer and best player in the league got hurt early as well as one of the transfers from Eagle Rock. That was when they lost to Burroughs by two. At full strength, they could legitimately play with anyone. They would have two extremely skilled 6'2 post players, a great point guard, a 20 plus points a game scorer and three great guards off the bench, one of them a very good shooter, with another big 6'2 girl to eat up space. However, the fact that they sit in a 1-2-2 zone and are very undisciplined at times is what keeps them from being an open team. The talent is there to be an open team, but not the coaching or disciplined. They should be a final four or at least finalist in 2AA. The fact is that there are some teams with better coaching and enough talent in that division to beat them. But when they are at full strength, there won't be many teams that will be able to beat them.
