As a hoop fan, UCLA alumnus and Baseline League participant in tennis, basketball, and football before there was a Chino Hills High School, I must give props to the hoop heir apparent to the previous brother combinations of the Murrays and Jacobsoens who interestingly enough hooped from not to far away…add in Keith Van Horn and others and a ‘little pocket’ just outside of L.A. down the 60 to the 57 freeways going west to east then north to just above the 10 and head back west)—has put a good number of folks into the NBA.

When I went to Ganesha High School (9th grade) and Chaffey High School (10th-12th), there was only Chino High School until a little bit after I graduated in 1991.

At that time Chino HS was not very good in any sport except girls basketball in which they were perennial state champs.

Another set of brothers, interestingly, the Murray brothers,Tracy (UCLA) then Cameron (USC) were torching nets for Glendora High School, our main rivals in all the major sports.

So to see what the Ball’s have done for their boy’s hoops is trippy but great to see.

Much respect, Ball brothers, keep hoopin’ on ’em – Dr. Clayborne
