This week’s rankings go down the line in the CIF Open Divisions with those 14 teams, seven each in the Southern and Northern Regional playoffs. From there comes the teams that are in the NorCal and SoCal Division I bracket, but not in the exact order of the seedings. The top three teams stay the...
It’s only two weeks into our player of the week honors for boys and girls hoops (and some of the NorCal schools are playing very limited schedules), but we already have a couple of firsts. We have the first NorCal girls selection that also is based in part on what that girl has done in […]

That total actually is quite average for California, but there is a stronger representation than usual […]
There’s a new No. 1 of course with St. John Bosco taking over for Mater Dei after last Saturday’s pulsating win over the Monarchs in the CIF Southern Section Division I championship. Others on the rise include Serra of San Mateo and Oak Ridge of El Dorado Hills, but we’re not going to go along...
