Seventeen of the 20 teams that traveled to Sacramento this weekend were private schools, and for the first time, all 10 state champions were private schools. "I think the committee is going to be coming up with criteria and ideas" in the next few months," Ishida said.

Reporting from Sacramento ? With its shots not falling and frustration growing as Concord De La Salle kept running time off the clock on nearly every possession, Santa Ana Mater Dei found itself in an uncomfortable situation for much of Saturday night's CIF Division I state championship game. The Monarchs' deficit reached nine points in the third quarter before Katin Reinhardt began to contribute some badly needed offense. He had 10 of his 17 points in the quarter, and Mater Dei was able to grind out a 43-36 victory in the lowest-scoring Division I final ever at Power Balance Pavilion.
