2021-22 INLAND EMPIRE BASKETBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 25 RANKINGS
- DAMIEN PIT OF LA VERNE (2020 RANK: 6)
The Pit was insane. It craziness was never-ending. If you made a mistake, you’re in trouble because the Pit will not forget your mistakes. The Pit can get on the edge and they can be huge savages, but you appreciate the insane roar in the stands. Amazing group and that’s why the Damien Pit is the 2021-22 Inland Empire Basketball Student Section of the Year.
- MURRIETA MESA BEAST (2020 RANK: 1)
The Beast is insane. They bring any kind of props they’re allowed to bring (and sometimes not bring). Trying to make a free throw? Good luck because the Beast can get rowdy. This is a large and rowdy group of students.
- GREAT OAK RED WAVE OF TEMECULA (2020 RANK: 4)
One of the best to do it. The Red Wave is always jammed pack and insane. They always take it to another level. I expect much bigger things from the Red Wave, which is insane for me to say. How can they top themselves when they are at the top?
- VISTA MURRIETA BRONCO BLEACHER CREATURES (2020 RANK: 5)
Mad respect to the Bronco Bleacher Creatures. When I saw them, they traveled for a road game. Road Warriors and they packed the gym and went wild against Murrieta Mesa. Fantastic student section!
- ETIWANDA RED ZONE (2020 RANK: 2)
The Red Zone stayed the course with another Top 5 finish. Amazing student section that has been consistent as one of the Inland Empire’s best.
- CENTENNIAL DAWGPOUND OF CORONA (2020 RANK: 14)
When you have one of the best basketball teams in the country, you have to go wild. They did that when they faced teams like Sierra Canyon and Havard-Westlake.
- ONTARIO CHRISTIAN DUNGEON (2020 RANK: NOT RANKED)
The Dungeon is a scary place to be at as the noise is a distraction. The Dungeon gives Ontario Christian an edge and a big advantage.
- BONITA DEN OF LA VERNE (2020 RANK: 3)
The Den was a crazy student section in 2019-20. They’re still pretty rowdy although we didn’t much of them on social media. They have to show off their school spirit. It’s deserving!
- RIVERSIDE POLY DEN (2020 RANK: 9)
The Den has always been a solid basketball student section. Nothing different this season. The same rowdy Den in 2022.
- NORCO COUGAR DEN (2020 RANK: NOT RANKED)
The Cougar Den has always been a solid football student section, but they brought that over inside the gym this season. I expect bigger things from the Cougar Den in 2022-23!
