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 2014-15 season has begun! I've posted the games I've covered on the first few links below, as usual, and will continue to do so all season.
I've posted my next round of playoff previews - for games of 3/4.
Just posted - my list of the Top 100 JC Players in California. There is also an extensive Honorable Mention list of players I seriously considered for the Top 100 list. It was the year of Williams - 4 players named Williams made the Top 100 and 4 more made the Honorable Mention list.
The 2014-15 page contains links to all the games I've covered so far in 2014-15.
The next link is my tentative schedule for the current season. Subject to change at a moment's notice of course.
JC Freshmen & Sophomores! There is a JUCO showcase coming up on Sunday, April 12th that may be of interest. Roy White and Scott Sommer of West Coast Hoops Report will run the event, which is during the April live recruiting period. Click on the link below for more information!
JC Coaches! There are two HS Senior showcase events coming up in March & April. The first is the Hoop Review Senior Showcase on Sunday, March 29th at Cerritos College. And there's also one put on by West Coast Hoops Report on April 11th at Lynwood HS. Just in case you're looking for players for next year...
I've also posted my annual list of signings & commitments and started a new list for this season. If you have any to add send them along...
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.
Everything from the 2013-14 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 Some basic info plus contact info for every JC in the state (let me know if something's out of date!)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 or tournament 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!
