: Who is St. Joseph and why is Mater Dei scheduling cream puffs to play against?

Well if you must know St. Joseph-Notre Dame is one of the oldest schools in California. It started out as separate schools in the same block. Notre Dame was an all girls school and St. Joseph was an all boys school. But due to dwindling enrollment numbers both schools decided to combine their campuses awhile back. St. Joseph-Notre Dame actually isn't too bad this year in basketball and more than likely could compete for a CIF championship and even a state championship.

Should St. Joseph-Notre Dame played Mater Dei, maybe not. But if you look at a lot of the match-ups they were safe match-ups and was made to keep everyone happy. Clovis West should have played Etiwanda or Mater Dei. Alemany versus Mission Hills would have been a good game to watch. I think both would have been evenly matched. All of the other games were decent and competitive.

That is the problem nowadays is there are so few top level programs willing to play each other for fear of losing. CIF has created a monster with these divisions. Just look at Division 1 with all of the top teams. If you already not considered an Open team and you are in Division 1 any loss hurts you because your wins and losses will be considered when you are seeded for playoffs. It was great when all of the elite teams were spread throughout the divisions but now that pretty much every elite or top level team are in one division it is insane. Then you throw in the 500 rule and more teams are looking to pad their win totals and play nobodies just to ensure that they make the playoffs. There are so many coaches ducking competition and looking for the easy win so it is not just Mater Dei doing that.
