Congratulations to all of the Cal-Hi Sports State Coaches of the Year for boys basketball for the 2021-22 season. We have one selected for each CIF division and had full state playoffs to go through to look for honorees for the first time in two years.
Here’s the second group of nominees, which are from the CIF L.A. City, CIF San Diego and CIF Southern Section schools. We’ll do the same for girls in the next few days. This will eventually lead to selection of the 43rd annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams. Think of this as our own virtual board of […]
This year marks the 43rd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams in boys basketball and we begin the process with a list of nominations from the CIF sections in Northern California (including the Central Section). Some of these names are obvious, but for some gaining a nomination can be a just reward in and of itself. […]

Corona Centennial completes epic season that began with a decision last June to win its first CIF Open Division state title. It wasn’t as easy as winning section & regional playoff games at home, however, as Huskies had to get past a Modesto Christian squad that had it tied twice late in the fourth quarter. […]
The theme of the CIF state championships in Division 1 on Friday at the Golden Center for both boys & girls was about longtime successful coaches winning their first state crowns. The Damien of La Verne boys also broke a streak of five straight wins for Northern California teams and showed the gap between the […]
Here are the predicted scores, what to watch for and more for each of the 12 CIF boys and girls basketball state championship games coming up this weekend in Sacramento. We will focus most on the Open Division and Division I, but also have the picks for each of the other divisions too. NorCal teams […]
Tuesday’s regional finals are set and once again it will be a No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the state matchup when Centennial hosts Sierra Canyon for the SoCal open championship. No, the NorCal open title game is not No. 3 vs. No. 4, but both Campolindo and Modesto Christian are confident after big regional...
