: : Selection of Open Division Teams:
: : Up to 8 teams will be chosen at the end of the regular season for the CIF-SS Open Division.
: : Criteria for Selection of CIF-SS Open Division teams and Seeding
: : A Blue Ribbon committee will be formed by the CIF-SS to select the Open Division teams.
: : Committee will be made up of current and former representatives of the CIF-SS Executive
: : Committee, CIF-SS Basketball Coaches Advisory Committee, SCIBCA Executive Board, CIF
: : State Basketball Coaches Advisory Committee and Media members.
: : 1. Teams will be selected and seeded by the committee using the following criteria: (unweighted)
: : • Strength of schedule
: : • Overall Record
: : • Freeman/Max Preps/CIF-SS Top 16 rankings
: : • Strength at end of season (including roster additions/eligibility changes/winning &
: : losing streaks/etc.)
: : • Head to Head vs. Open Division Entries
: : • Overall Record vs. Open Division Entries
: : • Victory vs. Quality opponents
: : • Quality loss
: : • Unexpected loss
: : CIF-SS Basketball Playoff Division Breakdown Criteria -
: : 1. Every year, schools will be placed into 10 original divisions. These 10 divisions (1, 2AA, 2A, 3AA, 3A, 4AA, 4A, 5AAA, 5AA, 5A) will have a varying number of teams in each division based on the average number of automatic qualifiers in each division over the past 2 seasons.
: : 2. Competitive equity will be determined by a formula of individual school regular season and CIF-SS playoff performance over the previous 2 seasons. *****
: : 3. CIF-SS Playoff brackets will be filled to 32 teams unless the number of automatic and at-large teams in a particular division necessitates a smaller bracket.
: : 4. If there are more than 32 automatic qualifiers in a particular division, Wild Card games will be used to reduce the field to 32 teams.
: : 5. At-large teams must have a .500 or better overall record and will be selected only to fill to 32 team brackets in each division using selection criteria discussed in the basketball preview and bulletin and as selected by the CIF-SS Coaches Advisory Committee.
: Never thought they would actually cut it to 8 for sure. Thought they would let season play out and either take 8-12-16 depending on how teams played. Seems like $$$ getting left on table.
: Early stab:
: Pre-Season locks - Etiwanda, Windward, Sierra Canyon, Alemany
: Most likely - Harvard Westlake, LBP, Mater Dei, Serra
: Others - Ribet, Orangewood, Fairmont, ??? (know I am forgetting a couple here)
There is no chance they will allow a recruiting junior college like rental home like Ribet with International ties to stay in 2AA and make a mockery of that division. They will most certainly get chosen. Biggest difference is if they leave one of the others in Division 1 they will still have a tough division to go through.
