Long Beach Boys’ Basketball Preview 2022-23

The562’s season previews for the 2022-23 school year are sponsored by Vertical Raise, the official team fundraising partner of The562.

We are still in search of a sponsor for our basketball coverage this year. Email Tyler@the562.org if you’re interested.

Long Beach Poly has won a record 13 consecutive Moore League titles, but a young Jackrabbits team could face a stiff challenge from an improving league, including a hungry senior-leaden Lakewood squad. This is the best the league has been in years with players to watch on every team–four Moore League teams made the preseason CIF-SS watch list in their respective divisions.
