LA South: Notable seeds in CIF Southern Section basketball playoffs

By Blair Angulo

A late-season loss to Las Vegas Bishop Gorman spoiled Long Beach Poly's bid for a perfect season, but it didn't alter the Jackrabbits' playoff picture.

Moore League champion Poly (24-1) received the top seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 1AA basketball playoff bracket Sunday. The Jackrabbits, ranked No. 1 in the area by ESPNLosAngeles.com, hosts Corona Santiago on Wednesday night. Pacific League winner Pasadena (20-6), seeded No. 6 in the same bracket, hosts Trabuco Hills; No. 8-seeded Montebello (25-3) hosts Redlands.

Other Div. 1AA games involving south Los Angeles County teams: Leuzinger at No. 13 Chino Hills; Long Beach Wilson at No. 4 Etiwanda; Lynwood at No. 14 Los Alamitos; Santa Monica at No. 11 Upland; Lakewood at No. 9 Thousand Oaks; Bell Gardens at No. 15 Rancho Verde.

First-round games will be played Wednesday at 7 p.m.
