College: California Players in the NCAA DI Tournament – Round of 16 review

Of the 29 California players on rosters of the 16 NCAA DI teams who made the tournament, here is a list of the players who saw the field in their games:

Lehigh Noah Molnar Senior M Corona Del Mar 3 GBs

Cornell Connor Hunt Sophomore LSM De La Salle 1 CTO
             Sean Doyle Frosh A Torrey Pines played

Loyola Blake Burkhardt Sophomore FO/M Corona Del Mar 6-13 FO 5GBs

Yale Michael Keasey Frosh M Corona Del Mar 1 Shot
         JW McGovern Frosh A St. Ignatius 1Shot, 1 G

Penn State Steven Bogart Junior D La Costa Canyon 3 GBs

Denver Eric Adamson Sophomore A Foothill-Santa Ana 1G 3A 2GBs
            Mike Riis Sophomore D La Costa Canyon played

Notre Dame Ryan Mix Junior A Corona Del Mar played

Here are some random factoids that I spotted:

• Of the 29 Californians in the Big Dance, 10 saw the field.

• By region of the State, 2 of 13 from NorCal saw the field, 3 of 10 from the San Diego Section played, and 5 of 6 from the Southern Section (Greater LA) played.

• By High School, Corona Del Mar had all 4 of its players in the Tournament see the field, and all those players are on teams moving on to the Elite Eight!

ª Of the 11 Freshmen on rosters in the Round of 16, only 3 saw the field. All three of them are on teams that made the Elite Eight.

• Of the 8 teams moving on to the second round of the tournament, 6 teams have Californians on their rosters, totaling 19 players. Seven of those nineteen saw the field in the first round.

I'll update this list after the Elite Eight games are completed.
