Sixteen teams were selected Friday to be part of the new Southern Section Open Division boys' basketball playoffs, and let's just say there were some surprises. For one, powerhouse Long Beach Poly (19-7), the Moore League champion, did not get chosen. Instead, second-place Compton (22-5) was put in, along with two teams from the Camino Real League - Los Angeles Cathedral (22-3) and Montebello Cantwell-Sacred Heart (20-6). Also not chosen was Lake Forest El Toro (24-2), considered the second-best team in Orange County behind unbeaten Santa Ana Mater Dei. Much emphasis appears to be have been given to strength of schedule and quality victories.

 On the eve of the Southern Section 1 p.m. announcement on Friday of the teams that will be selected for the new Open Division, here's my prediction if the committee decides to pick 16 teams. Mater Dei, Loyola, Etiwanda, Corona Centennial, Chino Hills and Long Beach Poly from 1AA. Riverside North and El Toro from 1A. Redondo and St. John Bosco from 2AA. Compton from 2A. Cathedral from 3A. Bishop Montgomery and Gardena Serra from 4AA. Sierra Canyon from 4A. That's 15. The last team will be Mayfair, Rancho Cucamonga or Chaminade.

Rajon Moore scored 30 points and Ajon Efferson had 17 points and eight assists for Pasadena (17-9, 12-2). Joining Pasadena as co-league champion was Crescenta Valley (20-8, 12-2), which defeated Arcadia, 54-47 to earn its first league title since 2004.

With a little more than two weeks left in the high school basketball regular season, there are some teams trying to figure out if they should really celebrate after a victory, considering each win moves them closer to being selected for the new Southern Section Open Division playoffs, where powers Santa Ana Mater Dei, Los Angeles Loyola, Etiwanda and Corona Centennial figure to land. There's speculation some teams would be perfectly happy taking a loss or two just to avoid being selected for the Open Division, but don't tell that to surging Chino Hills (18-4, 5-0)

 Tyler Dorsey returned to the court on Friday night for St. John Bosco after missing two games to focus on academics, and the Braves definitely needed him.
