…So, who’s surprised there are no area teams in the basketball championships this weekend? I was already planning my trip to Sacramento thinking the Pasadena boys and Muir girls would be my ticket to Arco Arena….

…I was very very impressed at how the Monrovia girls basketball team played with cohesion from start to end in its 79-68 loss to Foothill in Saturday’s semifinals of the CIF-SS Division III-A playoffs. Maryum Jenkins played stellar, and what more can you say about Gina Henderson? 38 points for anybody is amazing…

….My baseball top 10 rankings are still not done. Off the top of my head I have 1. Arcadia; 2. St. Francis; 3. Maranatha; 4. La Canada … From that point on I’m not so sure. It’s looking like my baseball preview will run Wednesday….

…Later this week, I will rank my best 10 favorite basketball players, both boys and girls. It’s OK if you want to start with your list…..
