Miramonte (Orinda) 67, Chaminade (West Hills) 63
A tough one to call, but Miramonte’s other players besides Sabrina Ionescu are much better than many think.
Brea Olinda (Brea) 71, St. Francis (Sacramento) 63
Ladycats are going for their 10th CIF state title in program history.
Cajon (San Bernardino) 60, Elk Grove 48
Washington State-bound Kayla Washington poised to have a great finale.
Sacred Heart Cathedral (S.F.) 58, Lakeside (Lake Elsinore) 47
Tough competition of WCAL for Irish is always a factor.
Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa) 65, Antelope Valley (Lancaster) 60
We saw Cardinal Newman almost beat Clovis West, which is the reason we’re picking the Cards in this game.
Village Christian (Sun Valley) 55, Eastside College Prep (E. Palo Alto) 51
A close call, but size of Village Christian could be difference.
