Teams connected to one of the greatest players in women’s basketball history and the winningest head coach in state history were considered for the No. 1 position, but the team that has landed that ranking just clicked too many boxes to be denied that honor. We also have other teams in the top group from...
Just like the boys, this list is different than the top 50 we just did of the best football players we’ve seen in our more than 40 years of doing Cal-Hi Sports in various platforms. It’s different because it’s the top 25 of our longtime girls basketball analyst and California girls hoops evaluator Harold Abend […]
Two weeks after we updated and posted all of our exclusive boys basketball state records on this site, we’re now ready to add the same for the girls.

It’s also been the site of some historically significant high school basketball games (both boys and girls). With the Warriors moving to San Francisco after this season and the […]
Destiny Littleton may no longer be scoring all those points for Bishop’s of La Jolla, but the San Diego Section has another who is rampaging this season. It’s Shyla Latone of Chula Vista Bonita Vista and on Friday she set a section record and moved to No. 4 on the all-time state list with a […]
As an aftermath to Shyla Latone scoring 76 points in a game on Friday, Jan. 19 for Bonita Vista of Chula Vista in a game against Hilltop of Chula Vista, we have compiled an updated all-time girls basketball state list for most points in a single game. We also have added a 59-point game from...
