Basketball season is almost upon us. Lets get the basketball discussion rolling now. Does Melba have enough to make another deep run and repeat? With Cole Valley bringing everyone back can they dethrone Melba? Can New Plymouth play the odds and make a run vs Melba and Cole Valley? What will happen with 4-8 spots with Nampa Christian, Marsing, Compass, Ambrose, Vision Charter?
This is my prediction for the preseason: 1. Cole Valley 2. Melba 3. New Plymouth 4. Nampa Christian 5. Ambrose 6. Compass 7. Marsing 8. Vision Charter. I believe the 4-6 spots could go either way. Nampa Christian lost some but have a good core group coming back. Ambrose lost some key leadership but have a great upcoming group from last season. Compass is loaded with soph class and will surprise some people, but are probably a year away from making serious noise. I would not sleep on this team though. Marsing lost a great senior class to graduation, but do have some young upcoming players to make it interesting. Vision is going to be young but lots of potential. They hired a really great coach in the off season and will get them where they need to go.
Lets hear some more predictions on what you think!! I would love to hear everyone's opinion on this tough division!
