: : : : : : OC basketball team of the year?
: : : : : : Public
: : : : : : 1. Newport Harbor
: : : : : : 2. Villa Park
: : : : : : 3. Cypress
: : : : : : 4. Canyon
: : : : : : 5. Troy
: : : : : : Private:
: : : : : : 1. Mater Dei
: : : : : : 2. Santa Margarita
: : : : : : 3. Pacifica Christian
: : : : : : 4. Fairmont Prep
: : : : : Public- La Habra
: : : : : Private Crean Lutheran
: : : : I wouldn’t vote for a team of the year that did not win their league. So Crean is out at this point for me and on that note they will be done after La Canada gets through with them on Saturday . Nice playoff run so far, but I am not impressed with a private school winning games in D2A.
: : : : La Habra is a good choice, but I would give the nod to Cypress.
: : : Private Schools should no be playing Public Schools in the playoffs! Why not put Teams like Orange Lutheran,Fairmont,J Serra, etc. against only Teams who can get players from all over the world. Public Schools cannot do this!
: : In New York and Chicago that is what they do. Public and Private separate. Here we don't.It's stupid. Public schools for the most part,minus the cheaters like Villa Park or when Otis was at Dominguez, get the kids in their area. Where as privates get THE WORLD. How can you have a school who gets kids from a 5 block radius compete against the schools who have the planet to choose their team? Insane. But we all know Mater Dei and the likes would sue the CIF.
: The last two posts are so correct. I have been saying it for years. Public and private schools should be in separate CIF playofff divisions for the reasons stated. Looking at the results the last twenty years, privates schools have dominated CIF and State Championships. There are public schools that recruit as well like Villa Park, Etiwanda, Corona Centennial, etc. and they should be placed in the upper public school division together. If the CIF Commisioner truly wants competitive equity likes he states, this change should happen like it id done in many states
Here is the one big problem, the schools or a league would have to write a proposal and then the principals would have to vote to create a public division and a separate private school division. Similar to when leagues are created (example the 605 league was proposed by schools and then voted on by the schools that were affected). Thus the odds of getting enough schools throughout the state to agree would be at best 100-1.
