We may not have a CIF tournament in the San Gabriel Valley, but in our little Tribune Poll, this is for all the marbles, for the undisputed top ranking in the San Gabriel Valley. No. 1 Diamond Ranch (16-4) is hosting No. 2 Nogales (17-5) at 6:30 p.m.

Fred’s pick: We haven’t seen the best of Nogales yet, I’ve been so impressed with their starting lineup and overall depth. My guess is there will be a new No. 1 when the night is over. Nogales by 3.
