 The post-season playoff performances have only added to the dilemma and debate of trying to rank the best junior guards in Southern California. There's so many that college recruiters are going to have plenty of options for the class of 2015. Michael Oguine of West Hills Chaminade, Kendall Small of Mayfair, Sedrick Barefield of Corona Centennial, Stephen Thompson Jr. of Bishop Montgomery, Max Hazzard of Loyola, Tyler Dorsey of St. John Bosco are just a few who added to their already impressive resumes during the state playoffs.

Five games down, one to go and Mater Dei is trying to make it a clean sweep for Southern California on the second and last day of the state championships at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento. The Monarchs lead Bishop O'Dowd 28-21 at halftime of the Open Division final, energized by Stanley Johnson's electrifying dunk early in the second quarter which sparked a 10-5 run that put Mater Dei in front.  Johnson, a McDonald's All American headed to  Arizona, leads all scorers with 13 points.

Not only does Mater Dei have perhaps the best player in California, it also has the best team.  On Saturday night, the Monarchs proved that where it counts: on the court. Mater Dei won its 11th state title, its fourth in a row and its second straight in the Open Division with a 71-61 victory over Bishop O'Dowd, a team the Monarchs edged 63-59 at the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas in December. Arizona-bound Stanley Johnson led the charge with 25 points, eight assists, three steals and two blocks and his spectacular two-handed dunk early in the second quarter ignited a 10-4 run that put Mater Dei in front.

Let the trash talking begin in the Thompson household. Stephen Thompson Jr. and his younger brother, Ethan, haven't been able to challenge their father, Stephen Sr., who won two state titles during his days at Crenshaw High in 1985 and 1986. On Saturday at Sleep Train Arena, the Thompson brothers came through with 20 and 14 points, respectively, to help Torrance Bishop Montgomery defeat Hayward Moreau Catholic, 85-44, in the Division IV state final. It was the largest margin of victory in state final history.

The coaches at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon can't say enough good things about 6-foot-4 eighth-grader Cassius Stanley. "He's the best eighth-grade athlete I've seen," football Coach Jon Ellinghouse said. Stanley is considered a top basketball player, but he also plays football and baseball. The big question is whether he'll stay at Sierra Canyon for his freshman year or enroll at another high school. He's in Sacramento cheering on the girls' basketball team to an expected Division IV state title.
