We continue our boys basketball coverage for Gold Club members with a final look at the close of the school year at the state’s top college prospects in the sophomore (2022) class. Our final 2022 Cal-Hi Sports Top 65 for the 2019-20 school year shows 10 newcomers since our post-summer edition, a fast-rising prospect, and plenty...
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. Two-time defending CIF NorCal Open Division champion Sheldon of Sacramento (boys) thought on Saturday that its season ended […]
Go through this post for updated outlooks and rankings for every CIF division plus we have as many state record updates that we could find in a limited amount of time from Thursday’s incredible 128-123 win in six overtimes by Damien of La Verne over Riverside Poly in the SoCal D1 quarterfinals. No. 1 teams […]
There were few moves to be made after a week that saw almost all of the state’s best teams roll in their final games of the regular season. Previous No. 10 Monte Vista of Danville did have to drop after its loss to No. 8 De La Salle and the Mustangs’ spot in the order...
A 45-17 victory over Monte Vista of Danville (which was 9-0) shows that underclass-oriented Spartans are beginning to hit their stride as regular season ends. To win 26th straight North Coast Section title, however, it will have to be in new Open Division, which will leave out one team that won’t be happy when it’s […]
Our first five to start the 2016 football season is hugely influenced by previous results because we simply can’t rank Mater Dei of Santa Ana (highest ranked from the state in many national polls) ahead of a St. John Bosco team it has lost to six straight times. That kind of ranking needs to be […]
There’s only one from De La Salle on first team and the talent in the section is among its best ever, including the top-ranked running back in the U.S. No one doubts the Spartans, though, are still favored in the first Open Division section playoff. Still, the elite players on some of the other teams […]
The only blemish was a strange loss in the season opener almost in the middle of the night (due to weather delays) in Texas, but in the end it’s another top finish for the nation’s all-time best football program. How should the Spartans be handled coming into next season, however, with only two returning starters?
In dominating a team that has a win over L.A. City powerhouse Narbonne of Harbor City, No. 1 De La Salle shows the gap between itself and the rest of the state (other than two teams) probably is as wide as its ever been.
