    Bonita may have lost a few key players and they will be missed early on in the season, but when Nikki Wheatley gets healthy, watch out! Nikki is without a doubt the best female player in So. Cal. She is one of the top players in the country. Bonita will go as far as Nikki can take them. I would encourage basketball fans to get out and watch this young lady do her stuff. She is a class act on and off the court. Go Bonita! Good luck to all Winter sport athletes.

    Fan,

    You don’t see very many games do you. Wheatley is a very good player and a great young lady. But she isn’t the best player in So. Cal. In fact she isn’t the best player in the SGV. Barnes from Dranch is the best player in the area hands down. I believe Barnes made one of the All-State teams last year. I’m not hatin by any means. Just giving you information.
