If somebody says they know absolutely, 100 percent for certain, who’s going to with the Imperial Valley League boys’ basketball crown this season it’d probably be wise to make a dash for the nearest fire extinguisher, because anybody who makes a claim like that is likely to be wearing pants flambé.
All four teams in the running have something to recommend themselves. Calexico’s lost just twice this season. Southwest is the defending champion, and despite a subpar nonleague run, they’re still a threat to take someone’s eye out in a rock fight. Central’s got a couple of pieces of primo talent, and have been moving up in the world since the activation of Imperial transfer Jordan Reed.
