Go through this post for the final rankings for every CIF state division for the 2020 season. Declaring co-champions for each of the cancelled state finals could still be done by the CIF, but we will continue to not have ties in any of our state rankings. With respect to the teams that may have...
These 12 teams were supposed to have played on Friday at the Golden 1 Center in the CIF state basketball championships. As a salute to the teams and players we won’t get to see due to the event’s cancellation (we have gone to every CIF state championship since the event began in 1981), here is […]
We wish we were writing about Corona High, Corona Centennial or Corona del Mar, but Saturday’s CIF regional semifinals in both boys and girls basketball were eclipsed in significance by off-the-court developments relating to the coronavirus outbreak.

La Jolla Country Day blows past Troy to move back into elite statewide list. The Torreys face No. 1 Windward next, which will not have played in 12 days. Long Beach Poly, Ridgeview and Lynwood moving up as well.
Ridgeview of Bakersfield leads group of three newcomers as section championship week starts on Wednesday. One of the most intriguing questions heading into next week is which four CIF Southern Section teams will end up in the new CIF SoCal Open Division playoffs.
No. 3 Bishop O’Dowd shows there’s quite a gap between itself and No. 4 St. Mary’s of Stockton among the best in California high school girls basketball, although the impressive win doesn’t change this week’s rankings. Etiwanda moves into the top 10 while the lone newcomer is Serra of Gardena.
Girls of Troy shake up the top 10 by knocking off previous No. 5 Long Beach Poly. Also coming up strong are St. Bernard of Playa del Rey and Miramonte of Orinda. Check back later this week for report on top girls underclass players we’ve seen in the last two weeks alone.
