Now that there are ten divisions/finals as opposed to eleven, it would be great if CIF could go back and play all the girls finals at one site, like they used to do at the Pyramid. Play three of the games on Friday (at 4 PM, 6 PM and 8 PM) then the other seven throughout the day on Saturday. Use one central location for all the girls finals, even if playing at multiple sites fits fine for the boys' divisions.

I think the Galen Center at USC would be an ideal location for the CIF Girls Basketball Finals. It is centrally located and a great facility. Though the 10,000 capacity could be too small for a "Chino Hills of 2016"-like boys final, it would be ideal for the girls games. It's bigger and more arena-like than the Pyramid, without being too big like the Honda Center.

I know that CIF is trying to increase attendance and that there are good reasons to spread out the games to different locations. I just think that it would be a good idea to centralize the girls games to one site and maybe spread the boys games out to 2 or 3 places. I don't know if its a good idea to alternate girls and boys games as is occurring this year at all the sites. This makes it difficult for girls fans to watch multiple girls games at a site and boys fans to do the same.
