Finding a JC in California
Welcome to YEAR 14 of The Premier Free and Independent Junior College Basketball Site in the state of California: DR's California JC Hoops!
The 2013-14 season is underway! I'll post game summaries for last few the games I've attended on the first few links above, as usual. Earlier game summaries are linked from the 2013-14 Season page, which is the next link.
JUST POSTED - DR's Playoff Previews! For the 11th straight year, here are my capsule summaries of most of the teams involved in the playoffs. I managed to see 32 of the 38 teams selected for the playoffs during the season, including all 4 teams in the state semifinals. Here's a chance to get a glimpse of the teams battling it out for state supremacy.
Next are the regional playoff brackets! These are linked to the cccaa.org site (so if they don't work, don't blame me!). Check out who is playing where and when as 38 teams go for the title.
Just announced - DR's All-State Team. Here are my choices for the best of 2013-14 JC basketball in California. Congratulations to SoCal Player of the Year Gerry Blakes of San Bernardino Valley, NorCal Player of the Year Kori Babineaux of San Francisco and all of the all-state & honorable mention selections!
Next - DR's Top 100 JC Players In California. Here's my annual list of the best and brightest players in the state, along with an extensive Honorable Mention list of those seriously considered for the top list.
If you're looking for players for next year...in late March there will be two exposure events for HS seniors that I'll be covering. First there is the Fullcourt Press Senior Showcase, March 21st at Lynwood HS. Then there is the Hoop Review event March 30th at Cerritos College. Click on the HS Senior Exposure Events for more info and contact information.
Twitter! Follow me @drinscv ("Follow me, follow me to freedom!" - C. Steiner, 1999). But don't worry - this won't change my old-school method of scorekeeping ("Me Use Pen!"). And I'm never ever going to join Facebook.
I've also posted my annual list of signings & commitments. If you have any to add send them along...
Everything from the 2012-13 and prior seasons and summers (including signings lists) is available by clicking on the "archives" link.
I'm kind of compulsive and like to keep stats at the games I attend. Since much of this information is usually not available anywhere else, I hope to provide some info to anyone out there who is interested - players, fans, coaches, recruiters, anyone.
And there's also a guide to finding a JC in California. Since I've been asked a number of times through the years about how a player would find a JC to play at, I decided to put together this guide. Some basic info plus contact info for every JC in the state (let me know if something's out of date!) is on here so if you or someone you know is looking for a JC out here check it out.
I live in the Santa Clarita Valley, just north of Los Angeles. So most of the material for the last few seasons is focused on Southern California, but I normally manage a trip or two to the north each season as well. Since I don't use graphics, I don't have to delete anything for space reasons. So if I ever put it here it's probably still here someplace (except for things like uploaded word docs of shootout schedules, which are bigger, so I do purge them after the event is over).
If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me at DRinCA@lycos.com. Unless I know and recognize your return address, be sure to put "JC" or something that obviously pertains to JC basketball in the subject line. (Those are the only emails I open these days after being deluged by spyware a while back). But if I get the message I usually respond within a couple of days.
Thanks for stopping by!
