Los Angeles Preps: Inland Empire boys basketball teams

I.E.: Boys' basketball playoffs

February, 22, 2012
Another solid night for Inland Empire boys’ basketball teams in the Southern Section playoffs. Here’s a quick rundown of a few highlights:

*Upland, seeded No. 12 in Division 1AA, is the lowest-seeded team to slip through to the final eight, joining No. 3 Etiwanda and No. 7 Eisenhower from the I.E.

*Vista Murrieta and Corona, seeded 10th and 11th in Division 1A, also made it through to the final eight as the lowest remaining seeds in that bracket.

*In Division 2AA, a couple big-time upsets have left No. 8 Riverside Poly and No. 12 Cajon as the highest-seeded teams remaining in the top half of that bracket. One of these teams has a good chance to make the final as a longshot coming into the playoffs.

*Palm Desert, seeded fourth in Division 3AAA, is in a similar position after Arroyo Grande knocked off top-seeded Damien in a quarterfinal, and the Aztecs then benefited from a key coin flip that will allow them to host a semifinal Friday night.

Here’s a closer look the award winners from Tuesday night.
