Aram’s takes: If you’re a Nobles fan, you have to hang your hat on that usually teams improve in Year 2 of a new coach. That, and the fact Nogales does have one of the better players around in Keith Bolden. The flipside is that Nogales went 1-9 last year and every one of the losses was in double figures. So even if you get mild improvement, will it be enough to close the gap in all those losses? The good news for the Nobles is that outside of Covina and maybe Pomona, the rest of the Valle Vista League isn’t likely to be as strong as it was last season. With Diamond Bar and Garey off the nonleague schedule, I will call for one more nonleague win than last season and one win in league for a semi-safe early record prediction of 3-7.

    Aram,

    I can assume you are trying to be nice, but whom do you think is going to be that one league win. I’m assuming Covina since the 20 point margin of victory was the closed league game for Nogales.

    Margin of Victory:

    Covina 20 points
    Pomona 23 points
    Northview 27 points
    San Dimas 28 points
    Wilson 31 points
    Baldwin Park 51 points

    Yes Nogales is struggleing… all teams go through that phase…
    realistically i see a 1-9 record, even though the valle vista league is downgraded, and their only win last year was against s el monte, and even they may be improved. I predict a loss to Rowland, even though they too may be downgraded

    i would very much like to agree w. aram, and hope for huge improvement in the nogales record, but sadly it wont be for a long time

    just my 2 cents
