VIDEO: Poly and Wilson girls’ basketball find success differently

On this week’s episode of The Show, Mike and JJ take a look at the last two girls’ high school basketball teams still in the playoffs—Poly and Wilson—and the two very different ways they’ve gotten to this point.

Also, St. Anthony’s boys’ basketball team has been turning a lot of heads this season, but the school’s boys’ soccer team has embarked on an unlikely and rather amazing run of playoff success.

And Long Beach State’s men’s and women’s basketball teams continue their rather up, down and bizarre season of competing, and beating, the best while struggling, and losing, to the worst.

All that and a Play of the Week which is really a Plays of the Week in that in involves several people doing several amazing things. With their feet.

Welcome to The Show.
