2017 PAG METER/940 ESPN Boys Basketball All Stars
CO-TEAMS OF THE YEAR
RIDGEVIEW WOLF PACK
The division 2 section Champions beat everybody in the valley including the Valley Champion Central Grizzlies and runner up Bakersfield Drillers. This was the most dangerous team that finished at 24-3.
Division 3 section Champions won their 1st title in school history finishing at 30-5. With 1444 boys basketball teams in California, only 3 got to 30 wins. The Bears will be real good again in 2018
COACH OF THE YEAR
MIKE PALLESI, SELMA BEARS
Mike has built a powerhouse in Selma and I’m sure the over achieving Bears will be moved up a division soon. This team is so fundamentally sound that you better bring your A game to beat the Bears. The Bears finished with 30 wins and the most in school history. The Basketball team also finished with a team GPA of 3.6 which is off the charts.
