SoCalHoops State Tournament News

D-I CIF State Championship
Playoff Brackets--(Mar. 11, 2003)

cif1.h2.jpg (7564 bytes)Some people have been telling us that they've had problems finding the brackets (or in opening them up with Adobe Acrobat Reader) at the State CIF website.   In particular, all of the state tournament brackets (both boys and girls) can be found at a single link at the state website.  We have not had that same problem, but for those experiencing any technical difficulties, we've got the info set out below in two different ways: 1.  In the form of a .jpg graphic, and 2. in the form of familiar web-based html content (utilzing our own graphic style of setting out the bracets....Either way, no one should be complaining about not knowing where and when the games are and who is playing whom.   And finally, just so there is no mistake about what's happening tonight in the SoCal Regionals, here's who's playing (* indicates the home team, and all games are at host school sites in the first round unless otherwise indicated:

In the South, the No. 1 seed is Westchester (LA City Champion); El Camino (San Diego Champion) No. 2;  Fairfax, the LA City runner-up is No. 3 and Eisenhower (CIF-SS D-IAA champ) is No. 4.   Travel priorities basically determine which teams will have to travel during first and successive rounds.   Thus, even though Fairfax is a "seed" they have a lower travel priority than Bakersfield (CIF Central Champion) and thus Bakersfield gets the home game.
