: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Any opinions on the quarter finals on Wednesday?
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Valencia - Los Al
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Roosevelt - Oaks Christian
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Redondo Union - St Anthony
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Sonora - Canyon
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Looks like a nice, evenly matched division.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : I got Valencia, Roosevelt, Redondo Union, and Canyon.
: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Thoughts?

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Valencia beats Los Al easily. Much better coached team and will take advantage of zero interior D.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Redondo should win handily as well.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Sonora with a slight upset.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : My prediction is:

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Valencia wins by double digits over Los Alamitos.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Redondo Union over St. Anthony in a close one.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Canyon over Sonora in double digit fashion.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Oaks Christian over Roosevelt in a very close one.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : These are all great match ups but my money is on Valencia to win it all. They are well coached.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Agreed, Valencia should win. Should be a win against a Los Almitos team who's offense consists of one on one play and has no defensive commitment, poorly coached. Maybe Redondo gives them a run.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :: If Canyon can get to Valencia, they will give them a run for their money. Valencia just doesn't match up well with Canyons size.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : >>> I agree^^^Canyon will come out fighting especially after that 16 point win against Valencia. Their coach had good plays to stop them. It will be a good game.

: : : : : : : : : : : : : : If I were those two teams I would not count your chickens before they hatch. Still two games to go before the finals and as both should remember from last year, do not order your Championship rings until you actually win the games (West Torrance, Newbury Park - remember them last year)

: : : : : : : : : : : : : Newbury Park won the cif championship last year

: : : : : : : : : : : : :::: I don't think either team is overlooking the 2 games they have in front of them, but it is a game both teams would love to happen. What do any of you know about Sonora and Los Al?

: : : : : : : : : : : : Los Al easily wins, Sonora is a decent team at best

: : : : : : : : : : How do you say Los Al easily wins and Sonora is a decent team at best when Sonora BEAT Los Al easily?

: : : : : : : : : : Seen Los Al a couple of times. They have talent but are a terrible team. Don't play defense don't rebound. Just give the ball to their guard and let her try to go one on one. They will lose to Valencia, who I've also seen, on most nights.

: : : : : : : : : Los Al garbage. Went to scout them last game. Norco girl dropped 40 on them and game was close, even tho Norco had nothing else. Supposed D1 recruit unimpressive. If they happen to beat Valencia, they gonna get ran in semis.

: : : : : : : : Sonora is a good team. What they lack in scoring at times, they make up in defense. They physically wear teams down (holding teams to an average of about 35 points) With a strength of schedule at 13.9, they aren't playing cupcake teams either considering the league they are in. Looking forward to Sonora making another deep run into the playoffs, hopefully competing for a CIF Championship in a few weeks.

: : : : : : : : Los Al means Los Alamitos in this thread, not Los Altos. No one should be counting their chickens before they hatch. The teams remaining in the playoffs are pretty good and should not be overlooked. But, I as basketball fan would love to see a Valencia / Canyon CIF Championship only because of the rivalry between them since they both play in the same Foothill league. Redondo Union, Sonora and Los Alamitos are good teams as well.

: : : : : : Los Al main players are all freshman & sophomores. This is great experience & next year & year after will battle to win CIF.

: : : : : Los Al will never win CIF the way they play and the way they are coached. They will beat up their bad league and lose in rounds 2-3 like always.

: : : : Agree! That sums it up precisely.

: : : How dare all of you bad mouth Los Alamitos. They have travel ball connections with SCS/WCP. The parents at Los Alamitos wants to turn their school into the next big thing with a team full of SCS/WCP players so they can compete with the likes of Mater Dei and Long Beach Poly. Everyone should send their kids to Los Alamitos because they the best team in Orange County. Los Alamitos is so good everyone bad mouthing them is just jealous because Los Alamitos beat their team. Crocker is the best player in the Southern Section. If she was at Mater Dei or Poly they would never lose because she is so good. The Los Alamitos coach should just hand Crocker the ball and sit back because the only reason Los Alamitos loses is because he tries to have Crocker involve the other players. He has to do that because the other parents would get upset that Crocker is the team and the only real player Los Alamitos has. Los Alamitos is going to win Division 1AA. Just watch. Los Alamitos is the going to be the next big thing and everyone needs to send their kids here if they want to win a championship because no other school in Orange County is going to win a championship. Just watch next year with all of the SCS/WCP kids we are going to get, Los Alamitos is going to control Orange County.

: : Crocker is a good player but since we are talking basketball not overly impressed with her handles and she needs to get a jumper or show more confidence in her jumper other than that I like her intangibles, leadership and shes very vocal

: Wow, I would really want my kid to go there after reading that post. I looked at their schedule, they haven't beaten anyone at all.

Crocker is a good guard. Yes, she would elevate teams like LBP and MD ONLY because of her supporting cast. As far as being the best player in the Southern Section, I'd have to disagree.

Good luck to everyone competing!
