Without a returning starter, Oak Park (22-11) was barely a blip on the radar screen as a possible Southern Section champion when the season started. By season's end, the Eagles were the Division 3A champion, winners of the first basketball title in the school's history.

Watching Jordin Canada of L.A. Windward dribble a basketball is like getting the chance to see the Mona Lisa in Paris. It's perfection on display.

She has been selected The Times' girls' basketball player of the year after averaging 17.2 points and 6.9 assists in leading Windward to the Southern Section Open Division championship.

It actually makes sense a stadium nicknamed "The Billion Dollar Play Pen" should host college basketball's billion-dollar end games. It makes less sense that everyone except the players seems to be cashing in. This being Texas, of course, one host city was not enough to handle the event, as the NCAA granted this bid to the wide-open-spaces sweep of "North Texas. " That means Amarillo, technically, got a Final Four in the modern era before Los Angeles.
