You can run, but you can’t hide … We might get a Lutheran, Damien showdown in state playoffs

For all of our (my) complaining that you have three of the best teams in La Verne history not scheduling each other during the season and wasting all the money and excitement that comes with it, thank goodness for the playoffs. The Bonita-Damien game on Tuesday is why those two should play every year. It’s hard enough drumming up excitement for the boys basketball season, we don’t need top teams making it any harder by not scheduling each other. The Damien-Bonita game was by far the most packed and gut-wrenching game of the season. And we might not be done, with Lutheran and Damien still in the hunt (not guaranteed yet) for a Division III state playoff berth by reaching the divisional semifinals, wouldn’t that be something if their paths crossed in the state playoffs. … They can all hide all they want from each other during the season, but you can’t hide now …

    While it is likely both have done enough to get to the state playoffs, making it to the semifinals does not guarantee a berth. The losers of last years 3-A semifinal games(Palm Springs and Elsinore)were not invited to the state tournament.

    For every CIF Division 4 or 5 team that makes it to their championship game but has to be bumped up to state division 3 due to enrollment (Orange Lutheran is one likely example); one division 3 semifinalist has to be bumped out.

    Making the semifinals qualifies you as a bubble team. Though I feel both teams are still in good shape to be selected if they do not win.

  • Great Info!

    Thanks Prep Fan! As a Lutheran parent and fan I am hopeful that we can beat Price for the first time ever and advance to the CIF finals and insure our berth in the State tourney, but would love to be invited should we fall short against Price! I wasn’t aware of how things work with the transition from the CIF to State playoffs.

    I would certainly love to win all of CIF for div 3AA, but would very much just like to get to the state tourney with the possibility of meeting Orange Lu and/or Damien! This would be some very exciting stuff.

    Good luck to all the local teams!
