Day 2 Predictions

Game 1: Birmingham 51 Campolindo 46

Campolindo’s entire roster plays hard and disciplined and they have a solid post presence in Kellen Ito. But Birmingham’s roster is filled with fast athletes and shooters. I think Birmingham pulls it out in the end, but truthfully this game could go either way.

Game 2: Eldorado 71 Pioneer Valley 35

Eldorado will be hungry for a strong outing after their game vs. Taft. Curtis Stewart leads the way for the athletic high-octane SunDevils who’s fast tempo style of basketball won’t be corralled by Pioneer Valley.

Game 3: Edison 58 Pasadena 51

Steven Adams is the big x-factor in this game. If he isn’t a factor, I think Edison’s twin towers could dominate the game. Backcourt play is solid for both squads so it will come down to who can control the boards and score inside. I’ll take Edison based off of what I’ve seen so far.

EDIT: Bad news for my predictions. Steven McCllelan is injured, although Robert Upshaw is playing. I think this may give Pasadena the edge if Steven Adams can have an impact. Edison is starting 2 sophomores, 2 freshman, and 1 senior.

Game 4: Ballou 68 Washington Prep 49

Too much Ballou in this one. Washington has talented guards and solid athletes on the perimeter. I can’t see them beating Ballou because I think as the game goes on Donte Thomas will rack up points and Marquis Gentry’s presence inside will be heard loud and clear.

Game 5: Campbell Hall 71 Sylmar 42

I don’t think Sylmar’s frontcourt can stop Deuce Johnson inside and with the shooters and skill players that Campbell Hall has on the perimeter, this one is a tough matchup for the Spartans to win. There should also be another healthy dose of Austin McBroom driving into heart of the defense and making things happen.

Game 6: St. Joseph’s 49 SLO 45

Interesting local matchup to watch here. Without playmaker Joe Agbo in the lineup, the Tigers are a different squad. Josh James will look to have a strong outside shooting performance. Although the Knights are missing a starting guard of their own in Cal Poly football signee KJ Cusack, Bebe Vargas and Jacob Cano still have enough offensive firepower to lead St. Joe’s to victory. Another battle to watch in SLO junior Sean Mullen vs St. Joe’s Keith Bendixen, inside.

EDIT: Joe Agbo is starting today for SLO. This one should be very close.

Game 7: Mission Prep vs Rio Americano

N/A – Conflict of Interest

Game 8: Taft 78 Cathedral 45

Bryce Jones and Landon Drew should be able to run the show on the perimeter. An interesting matchup of two athletic big men to watch in Taft’s DeAndre Daniels versus Cathedral’s Frankie Eteuati. Game should be very fast paced, which plays to Taft’s strengths.
