The Chino Hills High Varsity Boys Basketball team has been on fire. Their constant game preparation has led to their tremendous success. The Huskies currently have won the CIF State Finals and finished second place in CIF, losing to Santa Margarita in overtime by one point in the CIF Championship game. The Huskies made a comeback when they started and pushed their way through four CIF State games, where they won the first game against Mayfair 72-69, the second game they played was against St. John Bosco where they won 65-64, The next game was against Rancho Verde where at the beginning of the game they had a rough start, but fought their way throughout the game never giving up even though at half time, they were down close to ten points. That didn’t discourage them and they fought and came up with a game plan that led to the Huskies tremendous success throughout the rest of the game. Finishing the game with a win 69-59 and moving on to the Regional Finals against Etiwanda for a rematch to reach the CIF State finals. The Huskies played the tough Etiwanda team ranked number 9 in the nation and ranked number 4 in California, with an overall record of 28-5 and in league 9-1 with the one loss to Chino Hills during the season.  The Huskies currently rank 16 in the nation and in the state their current rank is 6.

On Tuesday, March 5, the Huskies beat Etiwanda 49-47 taking down the league champs and going on and winning the CIF State finals against James Logan High 69-63, defending their state title and becoming back-to-back CIF State Champions!
