: #1 HW vs. #8 Serra --- HW, Twins plus new freshman will be too much to handle for Serra. HW by double digits

: #2 Windward vs #7 Bishop Montgomery --- Windward, BM don't have anyone to contain Osborne. If they go zone, perimeter shooters will light them up. Windward by double digits.

: #3 Mater Dei vs #6 Ribet --- MD, will be an eye opener for Ribet who's been adamant the entire season that they belong. MD solid half court defense specially around the paint will be key. MD by double digits.

: #4 Sierra Canyon vs #5 Etiwanda --- SC, this could go either way depends on guards play from Sierra. Whether they play as a team with plenty of ball movements or they get into coast to coast hero ball. Sierra by 5.

: Let's hear it.

Some great match-ups in this year's Open Division playoffs. Usual suspects, with newcomers Ribet and Bishop Montgomery.

I think all 8 of these teams will bring their best game, hoping for an upset to keep things interesting.

Serra is coming off 2 straight losses and I predict Alexis Tucker will wake up and lead her team to a close game against HW. I think the match up between her and the HW twin is a good one.

Bishop Montgomery is in a good rhythm and has greatly improved since the last time they met with Windward in one of their first games of the season. BM guard - Williams and Padilla - are legit. Game result will depend on if the rest of the Montgomery squad can step up. Osborne and Corona are no joke. I predict a close game with Windward running away with it.

Mater Dei/Ribet game will be the most interesting. Mater Dei has yet to face any top tier competition and biggest wins are against lower level teams. Loaded team, but will they be enough to contain Ribet's dominant bigs and strong guard play? I predict MD will take it, but I think Ribet will give them a good game.

Agree on Sierra Canyon/Etiwanda. Game will come down to the wire.

Good luck to all!
