CIF OPEN DIVISION WATCH LIST: For the first time, the CIF Southern Section Basketball Open Division Selection Committee has released their first “Open Division Watch List”. This list has been developed to identify the current pool of schools, based upon their performance this season, as possible “Open” division entrants into the 2014 CIF-SS Basketball Championships. The schools on the “Watch List” have shown that they are among the elite basketball teams currently in the Southern Section, based upon their performance, so far this season. The committee will update the list every week to track teams through league play, leading up to final “Open” division selection, on Friday, February 14, 2014. Teams may be added and/or dropped off the Watch List” between this initial list and final selection on February 14. Up to a maximum of 16 teams may be selected for the boys and girls “Open” division playoff bracket.
Who is on it: Damien is among 30 teams listed on the boys side and Bishop Amat and Bonita are among 23 teams listed on the girls side. Remember, they will take up to 16 teams.
