I just received this year’s schedule for the NorCal Tip Off Classic at Newark Memorial on November 27, the unofficial start to the high school basketball season in my eyes at least. It’s another great field this year, highlighted by two tremendous games to close it out. It’s always tough for me to make it out to the event because it’s during the football playoffs, but I’d certainly recommend it for high school hoops fans.
Game 1: 11:00 am San Leandro vs. Deer Valley (Antioch)
Game 2: 12:30 pm Dublin vs. Vallejo
Game 3: 2:15 pm St. Patrick’s-St. Vincent’s (Vallejo) vs. Manteca
Game 4: 3:45 pm Analy (Sebastopol) vs. Franklin (Elk Grove)
Game 5: 5:30 pm Berkeley vs. Rodriguez (Fairfield)
Game 6: 7:00 pm Newark Memorial (Newark) vs. Oakland
Game 7: 8:30 pm Castro Valley vs. Sheldon (Sacramento)
