It’s getting harder and harder to slot all-state girls basketball teams into divisions due to competitive equity playoff seedings, but we’re not about to quit. The tradition continues with these latest selections, based on where teams played in the CIF regional playoffs. Our division teams go back more than 30 years and have proven to be a great way to honor many more great players after the first 30 who are on the top three overall/elite squads.
Note: We hope you enjoy this free post on CalHiSports.com. Updated class-by-class player rankings by managing editor Ronnie Flores will be coming soon and will be for Gold Club members only.

D5 STATE PLAYER OF THE YEAR:
Christelle Williams (Valley Christian, Roseville)
*Note: The division placement of schools (and players from those schools for all-state) is based on the same divisions that teams were placed for the CIF regional playoffs. Section playoff placement also was used for teams that were not in the regionals. We also looked at each team and the team it lost to in the playoffs and followed the line of teams to CIF regionals. In some cases, it also was an estimation of which divisions those teams would be in. Sorry, but we cannot go through every nominated player and determine a separate divisional placement based on traditional factors such as enrollment. Well more than a third of the players already have to have divisional placement figured out even going by the CIF regional divisions.
