Glendora hoops might have it tough in the Baseline, but they love their playoff situation

Do league races in basketball really matter? Since teams in the same league often play in different divisions in the playoffs, all that really matters is where you’re ranked in your playoff division, not where you end up in league, right? Look at boys basketball, Glendora might finish third, maybe fourth in the Baseline, but they’re ranked No. 2 in Division 2A, which is all the Tartans need to pay attention to. Chino Hills, for example, might win the Sierra League, but they’re only No. 10 in the ridiculous Division 1AA, where Mater Dei, Etiwanda, Corona Centennial, Upland and others reside. Damien and Bonita might both win their leagues, but they’re in a tougher position than Glendora, ranked fourth and fifth respectively in Division 3A, where Crespi, Harvard-Westlake and Inglewood occupy the top three spots. Bishop Amat hasn’t done that great against top area teams, but they’re No. 8 in Division 4AA. Even La Verne Lutheran’s not a lock this year, they’re up from Division 5A to 3AA, where they’re No. 3 behind Price and Palm Springs. So, interestingly enough, Glendora who everyone knows got the short end by being sent to the Baseline, is in the best position of all when it comes to the playoffs.

    You are right Glendora is mighly fortunate to be place in D2A one of the weakest in all the divisions not counting 6A or 6AA. Glendora should cruise to the final eight. They will not be able to beat Peninsula or Gahr which handed Damien its first defeat of the season.
