: : : : : : Itís there a respectable d2 for girls to play hoops in Southern California? Heard not so many good things about the local d2 schools. Went with my daughter to visit the schools and they all seem to be basically an extension of high school, 13th grade. My friend is telling me to send my daughter to a d2 in northern Cali, said better comp, better academics and better coaching. Running out of time, thoughts?
: : : : : D2 is good in my opinion. Another thing to take into consideration, are u expecting your daughter to play in the WNBA or will she play 4 good years of college ball and get a college education and her bachelorís degree in top of that, thanks to her b-ball talent. Thatís whatís important.
: : : : Top D2 Schools are Azusa Pacific, San Diego, Pomona, Cal Baptist, Humboldt and Point Loma so most of the best D2 Schools are in Southern California. Whoever you get your info from you should stop taking any advice from them. They be loco. Just look at the D2 Rankings.
: : : Humboldt is D2, but it's about as far north in California as one can get. The question was about D2 schools in Southern California and which schools have good programs.
: : : Pomona (as in Pomona College) is NOT DII, it's DIII.
: : : I'm guessing the person meant Cal Poly Pomona, which is a DII program.
: : : A complete list of Division II schools in Southern California includes:
: : : Azusa Pacific
: : : Cal Baptist
: : : Cal Poly Pomona
: : : Cal State Dominguez Hills
: : : Cal State Los Angeles
: : : Cal State San Bernardino (they are provisionally DI now in men's hoops...not sure about women's)
: : : Concordia
: : : Point Loma Nazarene
: : : UC San Diego
: : : In Northern California, DII schools are:
: : : Academy of Art (San Francisco)
: : : Cal State East Bay (formerly Cal State Hayward)
: : : Chico State
: : : Cal State Monterey Bay
: : : Cal State San Marcos
: : : Cal State Stanislaus
: : : Dominican University (San Rafael)
: : : Fresno Pacific University
: : : Holy Names University
: : : Humboldt State
: : : Notre Dame de Namur (Belmont)
: : : San Francisco State
: : : Sonoma State
: : thanks for the feedback, really helpful. She's more off a D2 prospect than a D1. thanks, again. will look at all options.
: Hey, Mr. Know it All, the question was what were the best programs. Also, San Marcos isn't in Northern California.
You could also look NAIA - lots of scholarships there as well. Some prefer it to D2.
