SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

There were a couple of honorees this week who were slam dunks and then a couple of others that took a lot of digging, but we came up with four very deserving recipients, including a freshman whose name you might want to remember. This week’s winners are from Thousand Oaks, Rocklin, Los Angeles and Oakhurst. […]

NEW State Top 25 Girls BB Rankings

We had our first somewhat big upset of the season with Rosary of Fullerton topping Mater Dei of Santa Ana, but after all was said and done what looked like might be total chaos as a result of that, nothing changed in the first nine spots. One upset just can’t erase more than one significant...

After the Nike Tournament of Champions Joe Smith Division, the West Coast Jamboree Platinum Division and the SoCal Holiday Classic have concluded, the top five teams in the state do not change, but what does change is the order of where they’re ranked.

SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

Like last week and the first week of basketball players being honored when we had two players sink eight three-pointers, we have a player who made eight treys, but we also have one that canned 10 from outside the arc. This week’s selections are from Northridge, Sonora, Ontario and Sacramento. We hope you enjoy this […]

NEW State Top 25 Girls BB Rankings

As is always the case, the first set of regular season rankings is different from the preseason, but among the top teams it just meant a bit of a shuffle, although many of the top teams are playing in either the Nike TOC top division of a tournament that begins on Wednesday, or the 20th...
