The Chino Hills boys basketball team is used to playing in showcase events with the success it has had over the last three years.
One of those is the State Preview, previously hosted by Fairfax and now by Rolling Hills Prep at Cerritos College.
This season’s event is set for Jan. 27 with the Huskies playing the 8:30 p.m. game against Oak Park.
Earlier games will be:
* Long Beach Jordan vs. Crean Lutheran, 9:30 a.m.
* Heritage Christian vs. Brentwood, 11 a.m.
* Durango vs. Maranatha, 12:30 p.m.
* Loyola vs. Rolling Hills Prep, 2 p.m.
* Corona Centennial vs. Taft, 3:30 p.m.
* Wasatch vs. Santa Monica, 5 p.m.
* Fairfax vs. Bishop Montgomery, 7 p.m.
Not only do the Huskies have the last of the Ball brothers, LaMelo, now a junior, but much of the focus is likely to be on new head coach Dennis Latimore. He took over after Stephan Gilling was fired, the school couching that change by saying it preferred an “on-campus coach.”
