Inside the West Valley squad

Kevin McCarthy

Al Grigsby, the former Cal great, coaches the West Valley Basketball Club which is located in the San Jose area.

Here is Grigsby’s description of his squad to date: "Initially, we had an up and down spring but we’re getting better. At the recent Cal team camp, I was really impressed with how the guys played. Our identity is that we like to play fast but we recognize what is and isn’t working for us so we can handle opponents who push the ball, walk it up or play a halfcourt game. The guys are buying into their roles and our veterans have been great in integrating the new guys into the team."

Here is the West Valley roster, accompanied by quotes from Grigsby:
