SoCal JUCO Shootout
Signings & Commitments
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 California JUCO Shootout took place July 18 & 19 at Cerritos College. I attended 20 games over the 2 days and have begun posting material from this event. So far I've posted a list of scores, the game-by-game summary and box scores. It should all be posted by the end of the week.
During the summer, whenever I see someone from the JC world I'll post a summary on the top link above. This includes the Drew League, the JBL Pro-Am and a day or two at the San Francisco Pro-Am up north.
The Say No Classic is apparently a no-go, so why not check out The Drew instead? It's the West Coast's premier pro-am league, with guys from HS to the NBA and everyone else eligible. Get there early as it fills up now that the pros are on hand.
The 2013-14 season is complete! Congratulations to the new state champions: Santa Rosa. And particularly to coach Craig McMillan, who did a simply amazing job with this team that started the season 3-6. Also congratulations to the Ventura women's team and coach Ned Mircetic on winning an astounding 7th state title.
I've also posted my annual list of signings & commitments. 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 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 Some basic info plus contact info for every JC in the state (let me know if something's out of date!)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 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!
