Tonight's Boys' State Playoff
Semifinal Matchups--(Mar. 8, 2001)

Ten games.  All semifinals.  And more than a few of them are re-matches from the Southern Section finals last Saturday (e.g., St. Monica v. Crossroads, Inglewood v. Dominguez, Mayfair v. Redondo Union, Compton Centennial v. Bishop Montgomery), so at least there's a little bit of a built-in rivalry for many of these teams, either a title and pride to protect, or a loss to avenge.   Most of the games will take place in and around the Los Angeles area, but three will be up in the Central Valley (Garces will host Crespi in Bakersfield, and Clovis West hosts Corona Centennial, and Immanuel from Reedley will host Calvary Chapel Downey) and one will be in San Diego (San Dimas @ St. Augustine)

All games are tonight (Thursday)  @ 7:30 p.m.  The SoCal regional finals will be played on Saturday at the Forum and at the Pyramid (Divisions III and V only for boys).  See you somewhere.  And as always, check your local paper to insure that the location of the game is correct. . . . don't blame us if it turns out the game is somewhere other than where we've been told it will be.

No. 5 Upland @ No. 1 Mater Dei  (@ Ocean View HS)

We'll have more on some of these matchups (hopefully) if we can find the time later today.  If not, you know the drill. . .show up, have fun.
