Boys' basketball: Sylmar coach is suspended for season opener
Sylmar will open its basketball season on Tuesday in the Pasadena tournament without Coach Bort Escoto. He will have to sit out the game because he missed a mandatory meeting of City Section coaches last month.
The officials will breathe a sigh of relief. Escoto had seven technicals last season, which was low for him. His record is 13 in a season.
Sylmar will unveil four players who were forced to sit out last season after switching schools. In other words, they redshirted in 2011-12.
It's going to be another interesting season for Sylmar basketball.
