Basketball polls to debut next week

Our Bay Area News Group-East Bay boys and girls basketball polls will debut next Tuesday in print and Monday on the blog. I’ve spent the past hour or so updating my file with all the teams I’m considering. I’ll only divulge one secret and I doubt this will surprise anybody — I’m voting Salesian No. 1 on the boys side. Anyways, let’s here what you have to think while you wait until the poll’s debut.


Two Geeks Live Chat: Setting the stage for CIF bowls

UPDATE (2:20): After a delay, it appears we are back in business. Chat will begin shortly.

The Geeks checked into their hotel in sunny Torrance, CA, just a little more than a half hour ago. Their room includes an impressive view of both the 405 and 110 freeways, as well as the Home Depot Center. It’s time to talk state bowl games. We’ll see you at 2 p.m.
