No. 1 Windward doesn’t think of itself as being state’s best heading into Saturday matchup with No. 2 Mater Dei. “They’re No. 1,” says Windward coach Steve Smith. This week’s only newcomers, by the way, are St. Ignatius of San Francisco and Lynwood.

Last Saturday’s marquee game of the eight-team Real Run Classic at Long Beach City College featured state No. 1 Windward of Los Angeles against No. 3 Long Beach Poly and as one would expect it went down to the wire with Windward holding on for a 54-53 win.

After opening a 51-42 lead with 3:45 left, Windward saw it evaporate after an 11-1 Jackrabbit run gave Poly a 53-52 advantage with 1:28 remaining.

Three lead changes later, Macchiati Smith hit a left-handed running layup with 11.5 seconds remaining for the game-winner.

Even after the sophomore’s basket, the game was far from over. The Wildcats used a foul at the seven-second mark. Courtney Jaco then forced a jump ball with 1.4 seconds remaining. With the 6-foot-7 Imani Stafford defending the inbounds and forcing a pass out beyond the arc, a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer by Poly’s Justyce Dawson clanked off the rim.

Jordin Canada dazzled the Long Beach City College crowd with a game-high 22 points and four assists.

Sophomore Arica Carter paced the Jackrabbits with 18 points while Destiny King scored 16 and added five steals and four rebounds.

The reward for coach Steve Smith and his girls is a road game at No. 2 Mater Dei where the state’s top spot will be at stake in a much-anticipated game Friday at the Nike Extravaganza in Santa Ana.

“It’s just like boxing. You have to knock out the champion,” Smith told Cal-Hi Sports.

“Hey, I saw them destroy Poly by 42 points in a game during fall when they were healthy,” Smith continued. “We may be the top-ranked team right now, but until someone in-state beats Mater Dei they’re number one in the state.”

Smith has a point. The Monarchs also have been State Team of the Year for 2010 and 2011.

(After games of Saturday, Jan. 28)


1. (1) Windward (Los Angeles) 18-3
Prior to the win against Long Beach Poly, the Wildcats had a running clock win over crosstown Pacific Hills. Sophomore 6-foot Kristen Simon had a double-double 21 points and 10 rebounds. This week, before taking on Mater Dei, the girls have two Alpha League games at nearby Brentwood and at home against Chatsworth Sierra Canyon.

After Westlake of Westlake Village outlasted Oaks Christian 49-42 to win the CIF Southern Section Northern Division title on Friday, the Warriors (14-0) appear to be a shoo-in to be chosen on Sunday to play in this year’s CIF Open Division state final.

The real drama in Southern California, therefore, seems to be for the Division I berth.

Vista Murrieta improved to 14-0 on-the-field after it won over Centennial of Corona, but the Broncos are 9-5 including five forfeit losses and it’s unknown how those forfeits will be viewed by the CIF state selection committee.

Bakersfield, meanwhile, went to 13-0 with a 38-3 romp past Bullard of Fresno in the CIF Central Section Division I final. The Drillers need Vista Murrieta to be viewed more for its 9-5 record than 14-0 and also needed Santa Margarita (12-2) to win the CIFSS Pac-5 final on Saturday over San Clemente (12-2), which happened.

Here are this weekend’s full list of top 25 scores (Saturday night updated):

1. De La Salle (Concord, Calif.) 12-1

After a busy Thursday night that was highlighted by Westlake's 43-21 triumph over Oaks Christian in a matchup of top 10 teams, the Friday slate of games was marked by Redlands East Valley posting a 10-7 win over No. 3 Mission Viejo. The Diablos entered the season with a number of top returnees from last year's 13-1 team and lost earlier to FAB 50 national No. 1 Don Bosco Prep of New Jersey. This loss, though, is more of a stunner, especially with the REV defense holding Mission to just one score. We can't recall of a bigger regular season win for the REV program under coach Kurt Bruich. We'll have to consult with some of our Inland Empire friends to see what they think now of the pecking order involving the Wildcats along with unbeaten Vista Murrieta and 4-1 Corona Centennial, which has that early loss to St. Bonaventure that is looking much worse with recent results although it was in a close game.

The upset of Friday night has to be J.W. North of Riverside coming up with a 36-35 triumph over No. 7 Alemany of Mission Hills. Alemany’s only loss last year was to No. 2 Servite and the Warriors had no trouble in their fist two games. J.W. North is coming off a 2-8 season. It’s good to see the Huskies, a state power in the early 2000s, back in the limelight. The team is coached by Mark Paredes, who earlier in his career had top state-ranked teams at Bishop Amat of La Puente.

Check here to see which teams may be going up, which ones going down in next week’s state rankings, the second of the 2011 regular season

It was a wild Friday night in much of Northern California as lighting storms caused several games to be stopped, others to be rescheduled for Saturday.

At least the lighting didn’t cause power to go out for more than a million people. Thursday night events in San Diego were impacted by that power outage, but Friday night’s football games seemed to go off without a hitch.

The game of the night was at Centennial of Corona where the host Huskies met St. Bonaventure in a matchup between two of the state’s top 10 teams. The Seraphs proved they not only belonged to be that high, but possibly in the top five next week by pulling out a 29-27 triumph.

According to reports from Eric-Paul Johnson of the Riverside Press-Enterprise, St. Bonaventure pulled ahead in the second half after trailing 20-14 at halftime on a 1-yard touchdown run by Shaun Wick and on a touchdown pass by Marc Evans. The Huskies scored with less than three minutes left to cut the lead to 29-27, but that was it.

Saturday: No. 2 Mission Viejo had an unsuccessful trip -- on the football field at least -- back to New Jersey and New York as the Diablos suffered a 35-7 loss to Don Bosco Prep of New Jersey. Although Mission Viejo outgained the Ironmen in the first half, the deficit was 14-0 with the aid of two turnovers. Don Bosco Prep was more dominant in the third quarter and stretched the lead to 28-0 before the Diablos scored. Servite will of course rise to No. 2 in the next state rankings. Mission Viejo will drop to third or fourth, likely staying in front of No. 5 Long Beach Poly due to a lopsided win over the Jackrabbits last season plus the fact that those teams will play in two weeks.

The complete Top 25 state weekend scoreboard through reported results of Saturday night follows:

1. De La Salle (Concord, Calif.) 1-0

Did not play. Next game Sept. 16 at St. Mary’s of Stockton.

The teams on the bubble were the next 10 teams in those rankings, but were listed below in alphabetical order. Teams not ranked in the top 50 for the preseason naturally can be considered for the first top 25 next week due to early results and local preseason rankings that were released after ours.
