Former Santa Ana Mater Dei basketball player Mario Soto, who transferred to Saddleback Valley Christian, is now seeking a hardship waiver of CIF transfer rules in an attempt to gain immediate eligibility. He did not have a valid change of residency, so gaining a hardship waiver is his last resort to being able to play in his senior season. It is now under consideration, according to the CIF.

Three years ago, Khalil Bedart-Ghani of Loyola was a 5-foot-4 freshman who barely came up to the chest of Coach Jamal Adams. On Thursday, during a basketball practice session attended by assistant coaches from Stanford and California, Bedart-Ghani was almost looking eye to eye with the 6-5 Adams. He has grown to 6-3 on his way to 6-4 or taller. His athletic skills keep getting better. And the big winner could be Yale, the school he committed to months ago. "He's an absolute steal," Adams said.
