    I really wish the PD would give the SCL the same amount of attention it gives the NBL. We may not be Carrillo or Monty but we have many talented girls as well. Some who even play with the superstars of the NBL at club level. Some of the teams have competed with the larger schools preseason and actually beat them (by a lot). These girls deserve “kudos” as much as the other girls as the work as hard as the girls who play for the big schools. It sure would be nice if once awhile they got a “feature”… just saying.
