LA boys tip off basketball season under new coach

It seems fitting that Trevor Naas’ first home game as Los Altos High boys basketball coach – scheduled 7 p.m. today – is against Soquel. A graduate of the school, Naas said the positive experience he had playing basketball for the Knights inspired him to become a coach.

The boys varsity coach at Saratoga the past seven seasons, Naas couldn’t pass up the chance to take over at Los Altos for Bob McFarlane, who resigned in April due to other commitments.

SF grad Johnson inks lucrative deal with Miami Heat

If Tyler Johnson wasn’t already getting donation request letters from St. Francis High, he surely will now. The 2010 graduate just signed a reported four-year, $50 million contract with the NBA’s Miami Heat.

Not bad for an undrafted shooting guard out of Fresno State who has started only seven games over his two seasons in the league.
