This is a milestone year for the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams in boys basketball since it marks the 40th one that we have done, beginning with the work of founder Nelson Tennis, continuing all these years with editor Mark Tennis and greatly enhanced in the last 15 years by associate editor Ronnie Flores. We now welcome correspondent Daniel Poulter to help with collecting nominations from various media sources. Some of the earliest selections include Reggie Miller (Riverside Poly), Gary Payton (Oakland Skyline) and Kevin Johnson (Sacramento). The process is now beginning for the latest elite teams and it begins with this list. It’s our own virtual board of nominees that can be amended by any coach, fan or parent who wants to make a pitch for their favorite player. Every CIF section in the state is included. We will post a second updated list — which will be for Gold Club members — once all additional input has been collected.

We hope you like this free post on Please help us out today by becoming a member of our Gold Club so you can see all of our great content. Two of the four all-state team posts will be for Gold Club members only. For more on special offer to get signed up for $3.99 for one month, CLICK HERE.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s height, position, year in school, significant statistics. Make sure to list the school, too. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or call (209) 608-1317 (that is the cell for editor Mark Tennis). For boys all-state teams, managing editor Ronnie Flores will be consulted for all final all-state team lists. Email

Also, be aware that not all freshmen, sophomores or juniors we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.

Format: Ten players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 10 more on second team and 10 more on third team. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also will be players named from each of the CIF state divisions. Players from Open Division teams will be mixed with Division I and there will be twice as many Open/Division I players chosen than from any other division. The all-state underclass team also will consist of at least 20 juniors, 15 sophomores and 10 freshmen. Those numbers can fluctuate, however, depending on the pool of players involved.

Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us info to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files. We do copy-paste the final set of nominees from last year to get started and may have missed seeing a transfer or may be listing a player who was injured for the 2018-19 season who played in 2017-18.

Congratulations to following all-state nominees currently on our board for the various 2019 all-state boys basketball teams (thanks to Northern California free-lance contributor Daniel Poulter for major contribution to this post):

    Gavin Wilburn needs to be all state💯

    Posted March 24, 2019 at 2:54 am | Permalink

    While Raymond had a great season for Eastside Prep our best player was 6-5 senior guard Isaiah Saams-Hoy and he should be 1st team D-5 and definitely on the list. Scored 45 in our NorCal regional loss to Mount Shasta. Led us in points (24.0 per game), 2nd n rebounds (10.0 per game) to Raymond (13.3), also led the team in assists, steals, and blocks (tied with Raymond in blocks). Isaiah was MVP of the West Bay Athletic League and put up these numbers despite being the defensive focus (double teams, box and ones, man and chasers, etc) of every team we played this season.
    — Kevin Seiter (Eastside Prep Assitant Coach)

      Also wanted to add there are five players from the WBAL listed, but not Isaiah, who was the unanimous league MVP.

        We will add more players to the second, updated list. Thanks for the info on Isaiah. Eastside unfortunately can’t be D5 anymore due to competitive equity divisions. Has to be in the same division for all-state that it was in for the regional playoffs. The tricky part is putting players in divisions from teams that didn’t make it into the regionals.

    Hey Mark,

    Thanks for the reply. Our boys were D-5 for regional playoffs. Lost to Mount Shasta in overtime in Shasta in the D-5 playoffs. The girls were D-2 this season. Donovan and I coach both varsity teams.
