Saturday afternoon Prep Hoops made the trip to Salinas, CA. It was a late season match up between two teams preparing for what is expected to be something resembling a playoff in Northern California. Palma a multiple PCAL Champion sporting a 8-0 record coming into this game against St. Francis a WCAL contender.  In what turned out to be a big win for Palma 65-60. This could give them a boost of confidence going forward. Here’s our observations from the game.

Top Performer in the Game:

Aaron Garibay Aaron Garibay 6'0" | CG Palma | 2021 State 6’0 Unsigned Sr of Palma

Garibay is a polished player, who brings a certain amount of confidence to the court. He’s been a consistent contributor for the past couple of seasons at Palma. It was no different in this game. He has some craftiness with his handles, and movement with the ball. He’s an underrated passer. He has good vision, and sees the court well, his post entry passes, and finding cutters was noticeable. He has a nice step back when he uses it. He delivered key buckets late in the game. Five 3’s, to lead all scorers with 24pts.

Top Underclassmen:

Joseph Finley Joseph Finley 6'7" | PF Palma | 2022 State
