NorCal Tip Off Classic field announced

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)

Water polo: East Bay notes, rankings and standings

The Miramonte boys earn a one-goal win over Acalanes. The Monte Vista girls top Campolindo decisively.

O’Dowd-SI game expected to sell out

Friday’s 7 p.m. home game at Bishop O’Dowd, one of two games this season under the lights that were installed last year, is expected to be a sell out, likely by the end of the day tomorrow. If you don’t purchase a ticket through the presale, you will not be able to buy one on game day at the gate. There are a limited number of tickets still available that can be purchased through this link.

For those unable to secure a ticket, you can watch the game online at this link.
