VIDEO: CIF playoffs begin, so does Play of the Week

Mike and JJ take a look at the kickoff of the CIF playoffs in boys’ and girls’ basketball, boys’ and girls’ soccer, with a little bit of Moore League wrestling mixed in.

They’ve got highlights and previews of who’s playing who, where and when.

Also, the preview edition of Play of the Week. And speaking as someone who has seen this week’s Play of the Week, it already should be a candidate for Play of the Year. Throw it down, young man!
