: Any coaches in 3A want to predict the first round games? Any other fans / parents want to take a crack?
There could be a few close games since CIF definitely didn't rank 17-30 correctly.
Simi Valley at Los Osos. Simi was ranked all year, but yet is heading to #1 Los Osos for round 1... Los Osos should win but it will be interesting to see if Simi can push them (this should have been a 2nd round match-up). LO 63 - Simi 48
Hemet headed to Shadow Hills --- Shadow Hills at home with a slight advantage.. this one should be close as the 16-17 match-up.. Either team most likely loses in round of 16 to Osos, but I'll go with Shadow Hills by 3.
Hillcrest at Irvine -- Irvine all over them... Irvine is highly undervalued but got a tough draw moving forward...Irvine by 30
Bellflower at Crossroads -- Crossroads should win this one, played a tougher schedule.. Crossroads and Irvine should be a good round of 16 battle.. Crossroads 56-41
Rancho Verde at Sierra Vista -- Rancho big.. Sierra won't be able to handle the pressure. Rancho Verde 68-38
Louisville over Katella -- Louisville much tougher league and they picked up a big from volleyball... don't think Katella can match up. Louisville 49-32
St. Mary's Academy at Villa Park-- think this will be a close one -- both teams played pretty good schedules... interested to see who wins this one. I'll go with Villa Park. VP 51-47.
Viewpoint at Montebello -- computer ranks both teams highly so we will find out which one is for real... I think Viewpoint pulls it out on the road. Viewpoint 46-41.
Temple City at Lancaster -- Lancaster beat them earlier in the year so surprised they are playing in the 1st round... Lancaster should win but TC could make a run at them as they have been playing better. Lancaster 51-40.
Beaumont at La Sierra -- interesting match-up -- I think Beaumont has more horses but something tells me La Sierra might pull an upset. La Sierra 48-47.
Paraclete at Moorpark -- Moorpark shoots threes and Paraclete plays zone -- see which one works.. Moorpark most likely headed for quarters vs Lancaster. Moorpark 52-37.
Chaffey at La Salle -- La Salle probably has the best PG in the division. Honestly don't know much about Chaffey but La Salle 50-31.
Price at Oxnard -- Price squeezed into the playoffs and I think Oxnard bounces them out 58-34.
Perris at Granite Hills -- Granite Hills has one of the best players in the division. I think at home and having played good teams, GH gets it done and heads to #2 Flintridge Prep Saturday. GH 52-45...
