Live blogging from CIF state finals

Hey folks, well just wanted to let you know that I’ll be bringing you the live updates from tomorrow’s CIF Division IV boys basketball state championship game between St. Mary’s and Campbell Hall. I’ll also be writing up a story off that game, so I’ll have to take a little time afterwards to write, then I’ll hop back on and give you as much as I can from the girls Division IV game between St. Patrick-St. Vincent and La Jolla Country Day.

The final two games on the night (Div. II girls — Mira Costa vs. Archbishop Mitty and Div. II boys — Mater Dei vs. Archbishop Mitty) will both be televised on FSN Bay Area, so I won’t give you blow by blow, but I’ll probably stick around and provide some commentary for you folks. Feel free throughout the day to drop me and questions and I’ll do my best to answer and as always, please let’s get the comments rolling. I want to beat the 153 comments that we got from last week’s NorCal finals.

Also on Saturday, I’ll be turning blogging duties over to my cohorts at East Bay Prep Sports. Since I’ll be covering both the Berkeley and McClymonds games, I won’t be able to do the blogging myself but they’ll hook you up over there. Don’t be shocked if you see me drop in with some Mack comments though.

By the way, check out Friday’s Oakland Tribune for some killer coverage of Mack as it pursues the school’s first official state title. There will be a feature focusing on Coach Moe’s final game with Mack, plus capsules with photos and short bios on the entire team, including their nicknames and best memories from this past season. A few guys on the team made the mistake of not giving a nickname, so Coach Moe filled one in for them. They’ll be in for a surprise when they see the paper.

    wtf Jimmy? It’s 10 mins to tip off and there’s nothing?
    Quit eating all the popcorn in the media room and set the scene for those of us stuck in the Bay Area doing homework and following on the ‘puter!
