Manny Acosta hopes SEM will make a run comparable to last year.
NOTEWORTHY: Arroyo got a very tough draw, playing at La Habra in the first round.
Aram’s prediction: I have Troy and Alhambra playing in one semifinal. La Habra and Westminster will meet in the other. The finals will be Troy against La Habra with Troy winning it.
Aram’s darkhorse: Alhambra. The Moors have the skill players to make a run and the feel good story that is Gil Ruedaflores’ final dance in the postseason could make this a magical ride for the veteran coach.
