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 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.
Game summaries from the last few playoff games are the first few links, and game summaries from the other games I covered this season are linked from the 2013-14 season page. This season I attended 68 mens games (involving 64 teams) and also 9 womens games including the state championship.
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.
Everyone knows about the McDonald's All-American game, but there are a number of HS All-Star games right here in SoCal in the coming weeks. I've posted a list of local games on the next link. These are always a lot of fun - a chance for these guys to play for fun in front of family & friends - and unlike with the McD's game a lot of these guys end up on JC rosters in the coming years.
I've also started 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!
