Girls Basketball rankings: Is Diamond Ranch on a mission to meet Mater Dei in divisional finals

Girls Basketball top ten
1. Diamond Ranch (21-2)
— The way they handled Bonita without Kearney was impressive. Wouldn’t you all love to see them meet Mater Dei in the divisional finals?
2. Bishop Amat (17-6) – Given this isn’t the most “talented” team the Lancers have had in recent years, they’re still fighting for the league title tonight against Serra.
3. Bonita (21-3) – The Bearcats are so good, trouble is Diamond Ranch is better. And even though they’re young, D.R. is young too.
4. Walnut (19-4) - Can wrap up the San Antonio outright with another victory over South Hills this evening.
5. South Hills (17-5) – If they’re ever going to at least share a piece of the title with Walnut, they will never have a better chance than the one tonight. Next year, Melinda Gomez is gone.
6. Glendora (18-6) — Are you with me? Are the Tartans the biggest surprise of the Valley. No way can they beat Ayala, not many can. But a surprising season regardless.
7. Sierra Vista (17-5) – Every year I ask the same question? Are they this good, or is it the Montview that makes them look good. What I do know for sure is they bring it every night.
8. Rosemead (17-5) – Just copy down what I wrote about Sierra Vista, the same is true for these Panthers.
9. Wilson (14-10) – We’re cutting the Wildcats some slack because they had to play Bonita (three times) if you count the Rowland tourney title loss, and Diamond Ranch twice.
10. Covina 17-7 – Raise your hands if you honestly thought the Colts would win the Valle Vista League. The streak is at eight wins and counting

    Fred, I noticed that you mentioned Coaches of the Year in the boys basketball blog but not in the girls basketball blog. So here is my plug for Coach James at DR. His Panthers have been the top ranked team in the SGV for the last 2 years. He took a team that started 2 Freshmen and 3 Jrs. to the CIF Semi-Finals last year. This year Dr has played 11 teams ranked in the top 5 in their divisions. Etiwanda, Colony, Ayala, Summitt, Ventura, Los Osos, Chino Hills & Bonita. DR has beaten them all this season. Bonita really thought they had DR’s number, But Coach James got DR to play their game at a whole nother level. How many other teams in the SGV could have the Tribune Player of the Year out for a month with an injury replace her with a Sophomore and not miss a beat. Fred when you look at body of work just this year, there can be only 1 Coach of the Year.

    WE ARE DR!!!

    SHHS is way way over rated. They should not be in the top ten. they are a one player team….
