The first day of the Stockton St. Mary’s MLK Showcase — just like the second day will be on Monday — featured four of the state’s top 12 teams from the Cal-Hi Sports State Top 20.
Here are the first top 20 girls basketball polls for the new year in support of the Cal-Hi Sports Bay Area TV show. St. Mary’s of Berkeley is No. 1 after huge win over state No. 1 and national No. 2 Mater Dei of Santa Ana on Saturday.
Which one of the two All-America candidates from St. Mary’s of Berkeley will emerge as that team’s leader for player of the year? Neither one, however, is in front of Windward’s Jordin Canada or Mater Dei’s Katie Lou Samuelson to be the 2013-14 Ms. Basketball State Player of the Year.

For one two-week stretch, these 70 non-seniors showed the Cal-Hi Sports Caravan they’ve got the skills and talent to gain the attention of Division I colleges. Yes, the Samuelson sisters are amazing, but so is a freshman class led by Dijonai Carrington.
Star players for Monarchs and Wildcats both look great in leading their teams to wins at Nike Extravaganza and P.A.W. Division IV Showcase. State-ranked St. Mary’s of Berkeley and St. Bernard of Playa del Rey also among big winners.
Both No. 1 Mater Dei and No. 2 Windward survive upset bids. The week’s only newcomer is Oaks Christian of Westlake Village while the biggest win was posted by No. 11 Miramonte of Orinda at the Campolindo Shootout.
