The Southern California, Class of 2018 boasts one of the tallest classes to come out of the Southern Section in recent years. Baskets won’t be easy to come by against the NCAA Division I bound shot blockers in this class. Future Oregon State teammates 6’8” Andrea Aquino (Ribet Academy) and 6’6” Patricia Morris (Duarte), as well as University of Arizona bound Semaj Smith (St. Anthony’s) will spend the season owning the paint on both ends of the court. It looks like Oregon State coach Scott Rueck is putting together another team to make a run at the Final Four with the new twin towers from Southern California.
Let’s not forget what keeps the fans coming back for more: scoring and more scoring. The exciting perimeter play of Jilian Archer (Bishop Alemany), and Ryann Payne (Sierra Canyon) will keep everyone on the edge of their seats.
