The Bee's Joe Davidson breaks down the 10 best high school boys basketball teams in regional history:
1. Elk Grove, 1975 (27-5) - Anchored by the region's greatest talent in 6-foot-11 Bill Cartwright with a great supporting cast and frenzied coach Dan Risley. Herd went 30-0 with Cartwright in '74.
2. Jesuit, 1993 (35-2) - State Player of the Year Isaac Fontaine and coach Hank Meyer powered Big Red to the Division I state title game, falling to No. 1 Crenshaw of Los Angeles.
3. Kennedy, 1991 (31-1) - Greatest Cougars team of them all with Andre Watson, Scott Saber and 6-11 post Michael "Yogi" Stewart. The team featured amazing depth and skill for coach Spider Thomas.
4. Sheldon, 2013 (26-5) - The lineup of Dakarai Allen, D'Erryl Williams, Ryan Manning, Darin Johnson and Antonio Lewis is already an all-time great under coach Joey Rollings, area coaches say. Huskies can move up with more wins.
5. Highlands, 1983 (33-1) - Smallball worked wonders for Carl Montross, the stylish, leather-coat wearing coach. Scots had high-flyer Sean Chambers and guard Mike Bradley, now a Sheldon assistant coach.
6. Encina, 1964 (20-0) - State Player of the Year Jim Eakins, all 6-11 of him, led the "The Monsters" to city championship well before section playoff tournament began.
7. Jesuit, 1969 (25-2) - All-American post Mark Wehrle and All-Metro forward Larry Phayer made for Jesuit's first great team. Marauders rose fast under rookie coach Terry Battenberg.
8. Foothill, 2003 (33-2) - Behind childhood pals in combo guards Chris Walker and Sam Kirby, the Mustangs rolled to a state D-III championship, the second for coach Drew Hibbs, an area record.
9. Oak Ridge, 2005 (31-4) - Behind Bee Player of the Decade Ryan Anderson, a lot of interior muscle and guard play, the Trojans thumped national No. 7 Mater Dei of Santa Ana 60-44 for the state D-II title under coach Steve Scott.
10. El Camino, 1962 (20-1) - Bob Krulich, a mobile 6-5 center, led the Eagles to third place in prestigious Bay Area Tournament of Champions, a monster achievement and the best area showing until Elk Grove in 1974.
