Seattle’s top 25 preps boys basketball players

By nature, sometimes we stray into the realm of high school sports and today is one of those days. I’ve been trading e-mails with Kevin Cacabelos at SeatownSports.net and he asked my opinion about the top 25 high school boys basketball list he put together.
I told him it’s a great list, but wanted to get input from readers who know much more about the Seattle preps hoops than I do. So here it is and tell me what you think.
After talking with a few friends, I thought Cacabelos pretty much nailed it.
OTHER LINKS:
— We’re almost finished with our college basketball previews. Today, Bud Withers takes a look at Gonzaga. Bob Condotta previews Seattle University tomorrow and I believe he’s writing about former UW recruit Charles Garcia.
— Josh over at MontlakeMadness.com scored an interview with Wright State coach Brad Brownell and freshman forward Darian Cartharn in a preview of Friday’s season opener against the Raiders.
— Thankfully we’re winding down with the season previews, but here’s one more on the Huskies from BleacherReport.com.
— California looked every bit like a team many believe will win the Pac-10 when the Bears throttled Detroit 95-61 last night.

AND FINALLY, COACH JIM SHAW ON KJR:

— Just heard the tail end of Shaw’s interview with Dave Mahler and thought the coach made an interesting point on why the Huskies chose to redshirt C.J. Wilcox. Shaw also compared him to one of his former players, Brent Barry.
(Why did you make that decision?) “I think Lo (Lorenzo Romar) is looking long range at what’s best for C.J. and the program. He’s a good player. A really good player. He may be the best player at this current time that I’ve ever coached that’s redshirting. Brent Barry redshirted while I was at Oregon State, but at that point and time he wasn’t as advanced. He was only 150 pounds and really, really desperately needed that year to fill into his body. C.J. is a guy that’s a good player who will keep getting better. So it was totally a long-range vision thing. It had nothing to do with his ability to impact games right now.”
