It took us a couple of years to adjust our annual divisional all-state teams in basketball to the CIF having an Open Division. Now they’ve changed things again with competitive equity based divisions and team placements. If competitive equity means that the Open Division and Division I is that much stronger than the other divisions, it only makes sense that with more top teams and top players in those top two divisions that we have to adjust as well. That’s why this year we have the same format for divisions but have expanded the teams for the top division. All players were considered based on which divisions they were in after the section playoffs. If a player’s team didn’t get to the regional playoffs, we put him in the division his team would have played in.
