SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

As the funnel narrows and we enter the playoffs where a team could conceivably be eliminated before one of our honorees takes the court, we’ll try to select winners where that scenario is not a factor. This week, we have a Northern California girls honoree whose Tuesday game will be complete before your eyes peruse […]

NEW Girls BB State TOP 25 Rankings

The CIF Southern Section playoff brackets have been announced with games on weekdays that are beginning this week except the Open Division where action does not start until Saturday.

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

We still have a couple of weeks left before these selections get a lot more complicated because we don’t want to honor a player with a Tuesday playoff game in which their season may be ending. There were no state record book totals this week but we found some real gems in both Southern and […]

NEW Girls BB State TOP 25 Rankings

We had our first big shakeup among the top seven teams when the upset bug bit in the CIF Central Section, but it might not be as big of a shakeup as some might think. In the CIF Southern Section, the eight teams in the Open Pool play bracket are starting to take shape in...

SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

For the second straight week, Cal-Hi Sports saw the Northern California girls honoree in person, and we almost saw both the NorCal and Southern California award winners this week since both were playing at the same Sabrina Ionescu SI20 Showcase event in Concord. It’s just that part of their games were being played at the […]

NEW Girls BB State TOP 25 Rankings

The mess created with almost a dozen ranked teams in action on MLK Day that caused a delay in the rankings being released has been cleaned up but the who-beat-who syndrome continues with inconsistencies and a high number of knee injuries also impacting the pecking order as well. The first 12 spots didn’t change from...

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

It turns out that both of the girls featured for this week had performances that were seen in person by Cal-Hi Sports, although we cheated a bit for one of them since there was a Tuesday game from this week involved. In the end, the four honorees represent El Dorado County, Sonoma County in the […]

NEW Girls BB State TOP 25 Rankings

Scrambling to get state rankings done after the MLK weekend has always been a challenge, and in fact there were a slew of games on MLK Day on Monday that were impactful. The CIF Southern Section did pick up a couple of teams by snagging this week’s two of this week’s newcomers, both from Los...

SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

Other than reminiscing, this wasn’t technically a week for tracking potential entries into the Cal-Hi Sports Online Record Book which is one of the things we use this feature for, but it certainly was a week to uncover some talent and reward it with statewide recognition to go along with local props. Our Southern California […]

NEW Girls BB State TOP 25 Rankings

League play is either starting this week or in full swing around the state but the top teams still have some showcase games left. Some have questioned why there are not more teams from the CIF Southern Section in the rankings and so many from Northern California. The answer is competitive equity. The CIFSS teams...
