Workman and Keppel provide the best atmosphere in basketball .. Yes, Workman and Keppel

“Go somewhere else with the “they recruit” allegations, whatever they’re doing, it’s good for basketball, good for players and the schools.” Fred Robledo, quoting himself

Workman and Keppel have become hotbeds for boys and girls basketball and all four varsity teams are among the best in the Valley. Workman boys are 22-1 and the Lobos’ girls are 20-4, having beaten previously undefeated Duarte in back-to-back games recently. The Keppel girls are among the best in the Southern Section at 20-4 and the boys are tied for first in the Almont with a 17-8 overall mark. How do they do it? You don’t necessarily think of Keppel and Workman as basketball factories, but that’s what they’ve become. Go somewhere else with the “they recruit” allegations, whatever they’re doing, it’s good for basketball, good for players and the schools. What’s even more impressive is the atmosphere. Both schools remind me of the 80s and 90s when gyms were packed and the crowds were into it. There’s not enough of that lately.

    Looking at the picture above of the Workman gym, do they only have seating on one side of a small gym?

    Speaking of Imari Brown, the riegning Mountview league MVP, let alone of one best in California . Statistically amongst maxprep greats. I’m shocked you have not covered her incredible season like her sophomore season when she made the papers, every year she’s twice as better. This year is no slouch, Best in the SGv and she should get another newspaper spread as a senior as good as she is Fred you know it, yet and still not much was said after a 34-39 point game …those may have been two of the best games any duarte girl ever played against a good team Imari Brown came thru like always

    Ball players like Imari Brown come a dime a dozen it may be the last time lady falcons ever witness this much talent and pure skills,, I thought you would cover her better than what you did after seeing greatness! Without the 4. Seniors who graduared 28 points 11 reb. 9.5. Steals, 7.3 ASSIST 1.7 BLOCKS…should qualify her as MVP again. 2 years straight, should of been 3. So what’s up with that Fred?
