Granada Hills Coach Don Loperena hasn't had too many dunkers for his basketball team, but that's expected to change this season with the arrival of 6-foot-4 senior Yoan Yomba, a transfer from Minnesota. He hasn't played since his sophomore season because of a back injury, but Loperena said, "Athletic wise, he's outrageous. " He and a younger brother, Yvan, a 6-1 freshman, moved to the area because their father is teaching at Cal State Northridge. "If you give him some space, he'll dunk on you," Loperena said.

The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can't say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley. "He's the best eighth-grade athlete I've seen," football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said. Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball. The big question is whether he'll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school.
