FIRST TEAMANDREW GU, Albany, So. -- The No. 2-seeded Gu, a five-star recruit ranked 47th nationally in the Boys' Class of 2015, upended top-seeded Miguel Diaz of Castro Valley 6-2, 6-3 to repeat as North Coast Section Division I champion.
Representing the West in the boys game are Salesian High's Jabari Bird, Deer Valley's Marcus Lee and Archbishop Mitty-San Jose's Aaron Gordon; Bishop O'Dowd's Oderah Chidom is playing in the girl's game.
Not quite the run-and-gun squad they were in past years, the St. Joseph Pilots have used more of a bruising, half-court style to advance to Friday's CIF Division V state championship against Horizon Christian-San Diego at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento.
