  1. Washington Boys are going to get demolished by S.I..

    • Stephen Domingo had 20.. Wash is horrible.

      • joe da schmoe | December 23, 2011 at 12:07 AM |

        stephen domingo dominated against a very undersized washington team. being a foot taller than everyone does give an advantage. id like to see him play against someone close to his size. i bet he wont be so dominant since he relies on his jumper so much… we’ll see how he does when league comes around

        • Shouldn’t his jumper give him an edge against bigger defenders? Pulling them away from the paint?

          • joe da schmoe | December 23, 2011 at 12:25 AM |

            i hope that you are aware that there are other players, like domingo, who have the length and athleticism as a guard. i would like to see him match up with them to see if hes really what all the hype is about

          • Fox got 16 and 10 against a good Jesuit team and locked down Parker , that was real competition from a quality team by a fantastic player . That in my opinion was a class act .

            • Trust me – this SHC outfit will not rest on their laurels , they will continue to work hard regardless of rankings and is a superforce to be reckoned with , they are humble and just work with passion , this in turn will get them far this season , good luck the rest of the way .

  2. Caught the second half of the Sacred Heart – Jesuit game. Johns and Fox are darn good and only a late run by Jesuit against the Sacred Heart’s second team made the final score respectable.

    • SHC ran-up a 24-4 lead at the end of one and maintained that lead at the half, going up 35-15. Their lead got as high as 27 points late in the 4th.

      After watching this game, I won’t worry about the guard play except there were a couple of five-second calls made. Tyler Petrone is an accurate shooter. Irish nailed 7 three-point shots and shot about 62% for the game. I certainly didn’t expect that against the #8 team in the state.

      Go Irish!

  3. After looking at the final scores, the top 3 teams in boys basketball should be #1 SHC #2 SI #3 Riordan

  4. Good job WCal.

  5. Checked out the Riordan v University game. Riordan got after them on defense and the three pointers were not falling for University. Given the size advantage that University had on Riordan I was surprised they didn’t try to go inside more. I believe Arenas had a double double with about 19 points and 10 rebounds and did a good job on defense against taller players. The riordan defense held university scoreless until about 6:30 in the second quarter. If they keep playing defense like that they will surprise some teams come league play.

      I expect the same against Balboa today. Riordan guards will control the tempo of this game. I said it awhile back. Crusaders will beat the #3 ranked team in SF by a comfortable margin. Balboa based on its record was rated as such. These head to heads will tell where they belong in the CITY. Riordan in the WCAL might be in the lower echelon, but compared to AAA teams, would be considered the Favorite. My top ten heading into the weekend would be.

      1. Sacred Heart
      2. St. Ignatius
      3. Riordan
      4. Lincoln
      5. Stuart Hall
      6. Mission
      7. Balboa
      8. Lick Wilmerding
      9. Marshall (watch out come AAA season)
      10. Lowell

      • Mission should be higher..between lincoln and mission i don t see AAA this year being any better than them two skool.mayb marshell and possibly lowell..balboa is questionable..cause they havent really been tested against a good talented team like mission or lincoln who both came a long way in their program. but they will be tested tonight riordan

        • Feel The Pain | December 23, 2011 at 11:27 AM |

          I agree that Mission should be higher and probably will be once the AAA season starts. However, the power’s that be seem to favor the head to head battles that’s why I have Stuart Hall ahead of Mission. If those two teams play 10 times, I would pick Mission to win 6 or 7 times, but the only game they played so far had Stuart Hall winning. I think Mission will be primed for AAA action, and a decent showing in the Sand Dune Classic will show their true grit and mettle. I only have them this low because of the games played to date. I think they can go as high as #3 but no more. SH and SI are on another level. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Bears but they need to show it once AAA play begins.

  6. Burton-55 vs. Soquel-64

    Once again the undersized Pumas fall short in a hard faught battle. Burton was down by 4 with 3 minutes to play, could not get any closer. Burton is struggling to find their identity. Pumas Terence Ching makes the All-Tourney Team.

  7. Fox and Johns will dominate come BM game in Jan, but in consolation SI girls will dominate SHC girls.

    • Game will come down to whether SHC is able to shock and awe SI with athletism in first quarter (ie take SI/fans out of game early with ensurmontible(sp) lead). If SI stays relatively close it will come down to free-throws and you know what SHC did last year. SHC is better defensively this year. SI Aguilar will need a big game in put-backs and putting Johns in foul trouble and make him beat SI at the line in second half.
