There are several ways to bill tonight's big girls' basketball game between the Edison Chargers and Troy Warriors: No. 1 vs. No. 2. The Big Rematch. Take your pick.
But there's one simple statement that stands out above all: it's for the CIF Southern Section Division 1A championship.
The top-ranked Chargers and second-ranked Warriors collide at 8:15 p.m. at Anaheim Arena.
Sunset League champion Edison is 28-3 and basically has waltzed its way to the division final. The Chargers had a first-round bye and then preceded to roll through No. 16 Arcadia (84-46), Corona (77-46) and Saturday bumped off No. 4 Rancho Cucamonga, 74-63, to move onto a division championship game for the second time in four years.
"We really have been taking our games one at a time and not looking ahead," said Bonnie Samuelson, a senior who will play next year at Stanford. "Now we can look ahead to this one game. We're excited and energized to be playing in the final. It's been an unbelievable senior year. It's been awesome."
