Aram’s take: This is an amazingly run tourney put on by Knights coach Jim Singiser. If you’re a Mid-Valley Division fan, you can’t ask for anything better. Azusa, Arroyo, Covina, Monrovia and Whittier Christian all won league championships in the Mid-Valley Division last year and they’re all in this on Saturday. Last year’s SGV Shootout champion went to be the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and the runner-up was Monrovia, which won the whole thing. Can’t ask for anything better in early July.
