Career Day at Damien High School was an enjoyable experience for me on Tuesday, especially with nearly the entire boys basketball team signed-up for a class and sitting in while I rambled on about a career in journalism. They wanted to know who the area’s top-ranked boys team is going to be, so I had to look ’em in the eye and say, “not you,” that belongs to the CIF champs around the corner, La Verne Lutheran — you know the guys up the street from Bonita. The Spartans players gave me a hard time and said they would love to play the Trojans, though we know it won’t happen, at least not this year. In any case, it’s almost that time, care to weigh in on the top boys basketball teams, and how the new league’s will affect the landscape.
Below: Okay, at least we can establish that Damien has the best boys basketball fans in the Valley. Nothing rivals “The Pit.”
