Final Super 25: Not ranked
The Huskies were the state Division I runner-up last season and should contend again with UCLA commits Lonzo Ball and his brother LiAngelo Ball.
Lonzo, a 6-5 senior point guard, averaged 25 points, 11.2 rebounds, 9.1 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocked shots last season while LiAngelo, a junior guard, averaged 20.1 points and 3.5 rebounds.
Watch for another Ball, freshman LaMelo Ball, to have an immediate impact.
Ayala (Chino Hills) transfer Shane Hopkins, a 6-8 forward, and 6-7 forward Elijah Scott, an Upland transfer, give the team plenty of depth, along with 6-7 senior forward Chazz Smith.
Scheduled season opener: Dec. 1, vs. San Bernardino in Corona
