Calabasas shooting guard is Marmonte’s most explosive player

This was Jordan Coleman’s moment, and he was going to make sure everyone in the building knew it, too. In the opening minutes of the Calabasas High boys’ basketball game at Thousand Oaks on Jan. 8, Coleman threw down a ferocious dunk on the reigning Marmonte League most valuable player, Alex Tiffin.
