Looking back to Championship Saturday
Pete Fox of 710 ESPN and Mark LeCair of ESPN Bakersfield spent all day Saturday taking in the second day of the CIF State Basketball championships at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield. Southern California teams won three of the six titles decided that day, including the inspirational story of Gardena Serra, which won a title in memory of Stephen Autry, who died before the playoffs and before he could see his son Vaughn and the Cavaliers make their run. Here are interviews with Autry, other Serra teammates and coach Dwan Hurt.
In Division I, the Long Beach Poly girls' team fell short in its quest for five consecutive state titles and senior Brittany Wilson tries to explain, while player of the game Kareem Jamar for the Westchester boys discusses his team's achievement of back-to-back state titles.
