We are continuing with a series of girls basketball preseason-style features on some of the state’s most prominent programs and players for the 2020-21 school year. It’s almost been one year since any of them have played and it may end up being until December of 2021 for some. We hope that isn’t the case, […]
There are always difficult decisions to be made for every all-state team so here’s a look back at all of the various teams for the 2020 season. Some of the toughest choices involve who is on first team compared to second team for juniors and this year we don’t know if anyone noticed but we...
Ms. Basketball State Player of the Year Te-hina Paopao of state No. 1 La Jolla Country Day and freshman teammate Breya Cunningham both get onto the top 10 slots for the 40th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State girls basketball teams.

Boys state No. 4 Sheldon (Sacramento) was nearly […]
There is some movement in the top six of this week’s rankings thanks to Windward’s victory over previous No. 3 Long Beach Poly, but the top two stay the same as we head into the home stretch for league play and the beginning of league and section playoffs. From seven through 12, we also had...
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. […]
It’s a coming out party for freshman center Breya Cunningham plus a feel-good triumph for senior guard Te-Hina Paopao, but it took a layup with six seconds left by Jazzy Anousinh to give state No. 2 La Jolla Country Day a one-point win over state No. 1 Sierra Canyon in the championship game of the […]
