LAGUNA NIGUEL, Ca. – Six of the first 14 teams in the latest BurlisonOnBasketball Southern California Top 25 will be on display Saturday at Cerritos College during the Rolling Hills Prep State Preview Classic, presented by Scorebooklive.com.
The first of the eight games scheduled for the event tips off at 9:30 a.m. with host Rolling Hills Prep facing L.A. Brentwood.
Things conclude at approximately 8:30 p.m., when top-ranked Chino Hills faces Wasatch Academy of Utah.
Chino Hills will take its 21-0 record – and two-year winning streak of 56 – into its Baseline League game at No. 6-ranked La Verne Damien Friday night.
Three of the games involve six teams that are in the Top 25: No. 24 Santa Monica vs. No. 12 Mission Hills Alemany (3:30); No. 11 Corona Centennial vs. No. 14 Santa Margarita (5); and No. 7 L.A. Fairfax vs. No. 4 Torrance Bishop Montgomery (7).
Northern California’s top-ranked team, Sacramento Sheldon, is also in the event and faces Orange Lutheran at 2 p.m.
Tickets are priced at $13 for adults and students, and $30 for VIP seating. Tickets for children younger than 10 years old are $5. Tickets can be purchased on Saturday at Cerritos College.
Those planning to attend are advised to arrive early as the event was at standing-room-only level a year ago when a finale pitting unbeaten Chino Hills and Bishop Montgomery teams was the headliner.
Other “one-day events” set for Saturday will be held at L.A. Cathedral and Downey St. Pius X/St. Matthias Academy.
The headliner at L.A. Cathedral is No. 2 Sierra Canyon vs. the host team at 9:30 p.m.
