    Ok so I’ve to a couple passing tournaments now and let me start by saying 7on7 for some teams it means more than for others. But I’d like to offer my opinion on MVL teams that I’ve seen.
    Any talk that Arroyo is slipping or not as good as last years great team is bull. They are more athletic at every other position outside of Jason Villa which wasn’t even playing last year. They are bigger upfront as well. Camacho has a shot to eclipse Rivers’s numbers and Cotero quietly could finish with all the receiving records. Never mind a CIF repeat I think they’re a state champ this year.
    I’ve seen South El Monte twice this season once at Northview and at the shootout. Watching them at Mt View I was shocked to see how good they looked. Then I saw them vs Northview at the shootout and couldn’t believe that was the same team. Now it was minus Tovar which makes me wonder just how good this kid is. With him impressive without him a Frosh team. Any talk of them competing with Arroyo is laughable. Knights drop 60 on that defense.
    Rosemead all I can say is they better be a GREAT running team. If they have to throw more than 5 times a game yikes
    Marshall and View battle for the basement!

    I’m saddened to report that Darrall Imhoff passed away last Friday (June 30) in Bend, Oregon, at the age of 78. The cause of death was a heart attack.
    Imhoff grew up in San Gabriel and attended Alhambra High, where he was a backup center on the Moors’ 1954-55 CIF-champion boys’ varsity basketball squad. He graduated from AHS in ’56.
    Imhoff went on to stardom at the University of California, where he helped lead the Golden Bears to an NCAA title in 1959 and a second-place finish in ’60. He also played center on the 1960 U.S. Olympic basketball team, which won a gold medal, before embarking on a 12-year career in the NBA.
    From T. Peterson: Right Ron. We did mention Imhoff’s passing in “The TEN” recently. It was sad news. Also interesting that he was one of the players involved in the Wilt Chamberlain deal.

    If rumor is correct, Wilt had 20,000 females rooting for him, for however brief a time they may have been urging him on.

    Where is all this $$$,$$$ coming from to pay these kids in sneakers with zero name recognition? I don’t watch NBA anymore and few of my friends do. An NBA game ad certainly is not worth much. Who’s paying for these dudes, ESPN, Peterson and Torosian, parking and beer money?
