    The Salesian High girls basketball team is fourth best in the Bay Area and eighth best in the state, according to the latest top 20 poll from Cal-Hi Sports.

    Salesian (18-5) is the only Richmond team to make the lists, which were released Monday. The Pride had even better news last week, when star guard Mariya Moore was chosen to play in the McDonald All-American game at the United Center in Chicago. She is one of five Californians who were selected to play in a game that has featured all the greats, including Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

    In girls varsity basketball, the state’s top three teams are all from Southern California. Mater Dei (20-1) of Santa Ana is number one, followed by Windward (20-3) of Los Angeles and Long Beach Poly of Long Beach. Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland is fourth.

    The full top 20 lists are below. Rankings include games played through Feb. 1. For more information on these lists, visit CalHiSports.com. For rankings of just Bay Area teams, visit here. Cal-Hi Sports puts out its Bay Area Top 20 to support its television show, which airs live on KUSI Channel 20 in San Francisco on Sunday nights.
