Boys hoops in full force this week

I have to say that I am very excited to be going to a boys basketball game tonight.

Newark Memorial at San Leandro at 7.

These two always hook up for some great games and tonight should be no different. I don’t think Pirates’ star junior Jared Cunningham will be playing tonight (ankle) but Chris Jones of Newark should be on the court. It will certainly be a great game to watch. My first taste of hoops action this year!

And there will be plenty of hoops action all week. Make sure you go out and check out some games. Washington is holding its annual tournament this week. The following teams will be in that tourney: Granada, Monte Vista, James Logan, Washington-Fremont, St. Joseph Notre Dame, Arroyo, Castro Valley and Mt. Eden.

James Logan plays Monte Vista at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday to kickoff a quadruple header. The tournament runs through Saturday. For a complete list of tournaments this week, just visit www.norcalprepscores.com

Let’s get the hoop chatter going. Early predictions and sleepers? I am boring and will take De La Salle to win the North Coast Section Division I title.
