Hoops fans,

This will be where you will find the NCS basketball playoff brackets before they are post anywhere else. Join us in the above chat to discuss what’s going on today and check back here as brackets become available to me.

    What happened to Saint Elizabeth Division V?

  • Mrs. Oakley

    What happened to Saint Elizabeth Divison V?

  • BigGreen

    There just sren’t that good, they lost in the 1st round of the playoffs just last week. They were not that good this year.

  • ccoosby

    No surprises in D-1 and there sure won’t be in the first round I see two 30pt blowouts a 20 pt blowout and a 15 pt blowout Looks like a Dls vs SL or MV final

  • http://aol Big Joe

    DeLaSalle is the chronicle’s top ranked team in the Bay. They beat Mack. I think St. Mary’s plays Mack down to the wire and the Salesian ex-Chieftons beat Mack.

  • E_CULB

    Big Joe you tripping, wait till the NorCal finals and you will see the best team in the state!!

  • http://aol Big Joe

    I got a feeling that Div 1 game is going to feature DLS and Mack- it’s anyone’s ballgame. The other 2 teams are going to fight it out in Div 4, one of them is going to state.

  • http://aol Big Joe

    Don’t forget Div.4 Cardinal Newman, they’re 27-1. Anyone who is 27-1 is going to carry lots of mo and confiedence into the play-offs. I knew they were a football power, didn’t realize they had that kind of a b-ball record this year.

  • http://aol Big Joe

    We also got Sacred Heart out of the City at 21-4 and St. Francis 24-2, they just upset SH for the WCAL crown, they will both be in the NorCal line-up.

  • NORA

    Does anyone know how the BCL West teams are this year?

  • BigA

    University is a good shooting team but has no inside game. Lick has a very good point guard named Manansala and they also have a few good post players. Marin Academy has some very good players but a short bench.

  • Hoop Guy

    NORA-For the girls or the guys?

  • Ernie

    the Rincon Valley Girls won lost record is is way off

  • BigA

    Everyone can fill out there 09 NCS Brackets.

    It’s fixed now Ernie. The 15-12 record was what was on the original NCS bracket that was printed out and handed to me at the meeting. It’s been updated on the NCS site now so I made the fix too.

  • Ernie

    Jimmy,

    After updating the Rincon Valley W/L record are they still the eigth seed?

  • Julian

    In Div 4 Girls, if the coach was a little bit smarter about the way he used all of his players they could go all the way. It is amazing that they have done so well in the past considering his lack of skill.

  • http://ibabuzz.com/prepcorner Jimmy Durkin

    Ernie,
    Yeah, they are still the eighth seed. I’m assuming that typo of their record came when the brackets were being typed up, not when the selection committee was seeding teams.

  • Julian

    Sorry, I was referring to Marin Catholic in message above

  • Big Mig

    Newman looks impressive at 27-1 but they have not had much competition in their schedule. They will have to battle hard to get through St. Mary’s and Salesian.

  • Prep Fan

    When are you guys going to post the Pick ‘Em challenge? The sooner you post it, the more entries you may get, which makes it that much more fun. If it is posted somewhere else, I can’t find it.

  • Kyle Bonagura

    I’ll get to it tonight. It’s been a busy day.

  • Prep Fan

    Great, I see it is up now. Thanks Kyle. That was just a reminder. I love that you guys posted the certificate of authenticity of Eternal Glory from last year. If that doesn’t get people fired up, I don’t know what will.(:

  • The Trojan Den

    NCS starts tonight baby. Den can’t wait. We are returning some guys that were out with suspensions so we will be in full strength and louder than ever. Deer Valley probably doesn’t even know about the den they are gonna break out in tears tonight.

    CV finna fwi at NCS no one sees us coming.

  • dverdin

    Good luck den but tonite you won’t need it, cv will win by 30+ Deer vallley is no better than san lorenzo and by the way no one sees you coming because you only have three good wins all year

  • coach

    Why no Berean Christian boys in D-IV? They beat D-1 Clayton Valley and lost to them by 2. Played tough against D-1 and D-2 teams in league that made playoffs. Some D-IV teams made it with losing records. Any ideas.
