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.

Armed with a press pass, a full tank of gas and a determination to see the very best in high school basketball, I spent night after night last week trying to get a big-picture view of the Southern California scene just three weeks before the playoffs begin. It was an exhilarating but exhausting endeavor. There's more to life than who wins or loses a game, but people love their sports experience, whether they're a fan, coach or player. And I get paid to write about it, so who's the luckiest person in Los Angeles?

They hug nonstop as if they are brothers. They offer high-fives as if they are best friends. They send out tweets promoting each other as if they really care. And they do. There is nothing fake about how players and coaches from the Los Angeles Loyola High basketball team treat one another. They consider themselves family. When Coach Jamal Adams' father had surgery earlier this year, players were sending out text messages offering support. When assistant coach Ryan Bailey announced he was leaving to become head coach at Brentwood, every player dropped what he was doing on a Saturday morning to show up for a fall-league game and send Bailey off with a victory.

There's this coach. He plies his trade in the shadow of downtown L.A. He's got a different kind of philosophy, he's a different kind of cat. Yes, he gets results, big time. But it's more than that. He says playing basketball is about honoring the game, about calmness amid storms, about being a stand-up human being and treating your teammates like you are all one and the same. Phil Jackson? Not quite.

It was not the way Los Angeles Loyola had wanted to start one of the toughest weeks of its basketball season, with word that Coach Jamal Adams' mother was dealing with a serious health issue and had to undergo surgery Monday. Players united in offering support to Adams, and they made their coach feel relieved with their focus and effort in a 70-52 Mission League victory over Encino Crespi that moved Loyola into a second-place tie with the Celts. "Collectively, these guys have been lifting me up," Adams said.
