Girls basketball playoff pairings

Cajon and Colony come in as two-time defending CIF champions, but at least one of them won’t make it a three-peat, as both the No. 5 Cowgirls and No. 7 Titans are in Division 1-AA this year. Highest seeds in the county are Barstow in 3-A and Lake Arrowhead Christian in 6-A at No. 2.

First-round games will be played on Thursday in every division except D6-A, which has wild-card games Thursday and first-round games Saturday.
