I never really know how to start these kind of posts, but since the NFL season is over and we have entered into the offseason with the draft and free agency shortly around the corner, I thought I’d do a fun little prediction of how I’m thinking each NFL roster will shape up come 2019. […]

Seven local boys basketball teams will be competing Saturday night in their respective CIF Southern Section divisional semifinals. For some, it’s familiar territory. For others, it’s uncharted. (All games are at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted) Santa Margarita at Harvard-Westlake, 7:30 p.m., Division 1 The Wolverines will finally run into a team that matches their size in Santa Margarita (21-10). The Eagles boast UCLA commit Jake Kyman (6-foot-7), USC commit Max Agbonkpolo (6-foot-8), and BYU signee Shengzhe Li at center – he’s 6-foot-10. All three of Santa Margarita’s core are seniors. Harvard-Westlake’s core of Johnny Juzang, Mason Hooks, and Spencer Hubbard are all juniors. Juzang versus Agbonkpolo and Hooks versus Li will make the game a heavyweight matchup. Harvard-Westlake (21-7) is looking to return to a CIF final for the first time since 2017. The Wolverines won a Division IV State title in 2016. The game is being streamed via HWTV. It’s also being broadcast live on KDOC. Valencia at Rancho Cucamonga, Division 2AA Valencia (24-6) will be on the road for the first time this postseason, but a senior heavy team should give the Vikings stability, especially with leader Richard Kawakami steering the ship. Some of the Division 2AA favorites have already been bounced – Camarillo, Notre Dame Sherman Oaks, and Heritage Christian to name a few. Still standing are battle-tested teams. The late addition of Noah Veluzat helps Valencia tremendously. Veluzat is a great on-ball defender and he also adds security with his ball handling. Valencia’s boys basketball program has never reached a CIF final. Rancho Cucamonga (23-8) plays in the Baseline League with Chino Hills, Damien and Etiwanda. There is nothing they haven’t seen before. Crescenta Valley at Colony, Division 2A Crescenta Valley (24-6) has won its first three games by a combined 10 points. The Falcons know how to win down the stretch of a close game. However, it’s biggest challenge on Saturday night will be to keep the game within striking distance. Colony (25-5) stars Pepperdine commit Sedrick Altman, who is capable of 30-point games with flair. Altman’s athletic ability will get the Colony home crowd jumping. If Crescenta Valley can limit Altman’s big plays, it has a chance. Santa Clarita Christian at Highland, Division 3AA These teams are similar in many ways, but their paths are very different. Highland (22-7) is trying to reach the program’s first-ever CIF final. Santa Clarita Christian is attempting to reach back-to-back finals after winning the triple crown in Division 5 last year (5AAA, V Regional and State title). Santa Clarita Christian (9-21) has cruised through its first three games by way of 20, 25, and 33-point victories. Highland won it’s quarterfinal game on a buzzer-beater from Julian Williams to take down No. 2-seeded San Gabriel Academy, 56-53. Quartz Hill at Pacifica Christian/Orange County, Division 4AA Quartz Hill (15-11) is led by Erick Balcazar, Josiah Taylor, and Alaijian Russell. The Rebels took down a Drake London-led Moorpark team with a heroic comeback in the quarterfinals. Orange Vista at Providence/Burbank, Division 4A Junior Jordan Shelley will lead the No. 1-seeded Pioneers at home. Providence’s roster is full of underclassmen that are eyeing its first CIF title appearance since 2012 when Marcus LoVett Jr. was a freshman. Providence lost to Holy Martyrs in the Division 5A final 65-62. Carpinteria at Oakwood, Division 5A Oakwood (15-9) is led by Aiden Oliver, a 6-foot-5 forward that has scored 28 and 23 points in his last two games, respectively.

In Svbterranean’s Album Dissections, artists break down the construction and/or lyrical themes of their records track by track. Earlier this month Nashville powerviolence duo Thetan unleashed their face-ripping, sophomore full-length, Abysmal, via Anti-Corporate Music. The 18-track, 18-minute-long record assaults listeners with hyper-speed, hyper-violent bass-and-drum hardcore that doesn’t let up. Fans of Charles Bronson, Spazz, and […]
