* Shutting Down *
This Nor Cal Basketball website will close on Monday, April 30, 2018. No further subscription-based Premium Content articles will be published, and Daily Dose articles will not be posted regularly Monday through Friday. However, in the Daily Dose area, we will intermittently post player, team and coach feature articles.
Thank you for your wonderful support and encouraging words. It has been a pleasure to be part of your basketball life through the years. It also has been both a fun and educational experience. Now it is time for me to move on to different endeavors.
Welcome to Kevin McCarthy’s Nor Cal Basketball website featuring in-depth analysis and insights into northern California high school, community college, and university basketball. Enjoy both the Daily Dose and Premium Content sections of the website.
I’ve been writing about Northern California Basketball for 40 years. This website is the evolution of my early basketball reports, my previous blogs, and my recent blog, NorCal HS & College Basketball Central, which I no longer update. Access to my much older articles is available here.
Here at Nor Cal Basketball, I continue covering northern California high school, community college, and university basketball just like before, and in addition, offer more in-depth analysis in the Premium Content section. Be sure to bookmark this new site and visit daily.
I write to provide exposure to deserving basketball players, coaches and others, as well as to educate myself. Ideally, my articles will support the goals of their commendable subjects. A day without learning is a lost opportunity. I’m always looking for more information so please send me your news. Thank you.
All fans continue to have access to northern California daily basketball news articles in the no-fee Daily Dose section of this website. Daily Dose contains a collection of both the most interesting information and news articles I discover by scouring the Internet, as well as my own pieces gleaned from speaking with coaches, trainers and players. New articles are posted daily during basketball season, and generally Monday through Friday during the off-season. Daily Dose articles are available to all fans at no cost and can be accessed here or from the navigation menu above.
Subscriptions to the Premium Content are no longer offered.
Fans who also desire more in-depth analysis, articles and insights will want to look at the new Premium Content. The Premium Content contains my comprehensive examinations and insights into today’s Nor Cal basketball scene including features introducing players, special player signings, player updates, interviews with coaches and trainers, basketball trends, and much more.

- » 10/03/2017 The incredible basketball journey of Kenny Hatch
