Well, I got one of the four semifinalists right in the East Valley – both from my pre-playoff predictions and from my predictions last week. So don’t be going to Vegas and betting large on this.

Twice I’ve picked both of these teams to lose in the playoffs. Twice they’ve made me look dumb. So where do I go from here? I figure the third time is the charm and with that charm, I’m taking the Knights. Although Ontario Christian fans probably want me to take Grace Brethren, I’ve been convinced that the Knights’ “spunk” is legit. I mean, they’ve rubbed out De Anza champ Twentynine Palms and No. 2 seed Maranatha. OC will take this too.

As far as the Inland Division, technically the Sun has no stake left after REV and Redlands were eliminated last week. But for the sake of seeing things through, I’ll offer my predictions here. I’m thinking an all-Big VIII final quite frankly.
