: : The CIF brackets and pairings have been released and i predict that in the D5A division, Oakwood HS will be crowned State Champs on February 23. (Or whatever day the championship game is played)
: : I say this not to sound pompous or vain, but rather I say this because i have followed the Gorillas all season and I have checked out many/most of the teams in D5A.
: : Very exciting stuff. Go Oakwood. Good luck.
: You mean CIF championship, State will be played March 8-9. I guarantee there will be zero State Champions crowned 2/23. Oakwood has a good shot at CIF, but look out for Marshall. The polls in 5A were pathetic, coaches who voted in that poll should be banned from voting.
: There is a chance, if schools like El Monte or Marshall make the semifinals, that other schools from 3AA-A and 4AA-A will move to D5 for state. Even if not, Santa Clara has a 6'10 big and would be heavily favored vs Oakwood.
I just checked out Santa Clara and their big 6'10 guy - he is really good obviously. Ironically, his last name is OLiver, as is Oakwoods BIG 6'5 center - Aiden Oliver. Aiden Oliver has played 4 games - scoring 27 - 23 - 22 - and 42 vs Pacifica. IF those 2 big guys ever faced each other, it would be quite a match-up. BTW - thanks for CIF/Playoffs info - i am learning.
