City Prep Basketball Playoffs : Crenshaw Top-Seeded, San Pedro No. 2 in 4-A

February 16, 1986

Two-time defending City champion Crenshaw (10-0) is top-seeded in the boys' 4-A division basketball playoffs, which begin Friday night.

San Pedro (8-2), which tied with Carson (8-2) for the Marine league title but defeated the Colts twice, is seeded No. 2.

The winner of the Valley League, either Cleveland (10-1) or Fairfax (9-2), will be seeded third.

If Cleveland defeats Kennedy at Kennedy High Wednesday, the Cavaliers will win the title outright. If Cleveland loses and Fairfax wins at Reseda (0-11) Wednesday, Cleveland and Fairfax will tie for the title and a coin flip will decide which team is No. 1 and therefore seeded third.

The loser of the flip will be the fourth-seeded team and will play the winner of the Dorsey-Washington playoff game in the first round.

Northern League champion Marshall is the top-seeded team in the 3-A division. Northwest Valley League titlist Granada Hills is seeded No. 2 , East Valley champion Poly (9-1) is No. 3 and the winner of a coin flip among Jefferson, University and Venice, all tied for the Pac-6 League title at 7-3, will be No. 4.
