Aram’s predix for Rio Hondo League boys and girls hoops races … Follow me for score updates at @aramtolegian

The boys and girls Rio Hondo League hoops season tips off tonight with an interesting slate. South Pas vs. La Canada in both boys and girls is gonna go a long ways toward determining the league champ. That’s my take, anyway. Here are the not-so-fearless predictions … why? Because this blog is booooorrrrrrrrinnnnnggggg. Thanks for reading!

Boys Predictions

1. La Canada — Sparty can get their shots, can they knock ’em down?
2. South Pas — The win at Glendora stands out. But was it their peak?
3. Temple City — “TC by 2” – Mike Tomasulo circa 1990.
4. Monrovia — Long-term, Goldstein turns this program around.
5. San Marino — Yeah, I’m not buying the record.
6. Blair — Back in the day … this isn’t back in the day.

Boys Schedule for Wednesday
All games at 7 p.m.

South Pasadena at La Canada
San Marino at Monrovia
Blair at Temple City

Girls Predictions

1. La Canada — It’s the system, stupid.
2. South Pasadena — Proved last year they can bang with LC.
3. Temple City — Decent, but appears to be a bit behind top two.
4. San Marino — Have to think Titans are better than record.
5. Monrovia — Would have better chance if they played defense.
6. Blair — Uh, yeah, they’ve played five games.

Girls schedule for Wednesday
All games at 5 p.m.

South Pasadena at La Canada
San Marino at Monrovia
