The CIF Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs are in full swing now heading into the semi-finals. Sixteen teams have been narrowed to only four teams left in the contest. There have been some exciting competitive games, others that ended in blowouts, and one underdog team that has made it deep into playoffs. Congratulations to Sheldon, Rocklin, Weston Ranch, and Capital Christian for making it to this point. On Friday the 28th the two best teams in the bracket will square off for section champs. In this preview, I wanted to talk about one player from each team and how they can be a huge difference-maker in the semi-finals while also helping their team get the chance to win a championship come Friday.

I’ll begin with the game in the top of the bracket which is Sheldon high hosting Rocklin High. Both teams are sitting at 25-5 on the season and have several key players that make huge impacts every game. Sheldon comes into this game with all of their starting five back in the roster since a few were out for several games.

Brown reminds me of a young Rajon Rondo.
