Roseville, Rocklin and Granite Bay All Basketball Playoff Contenders

The playoffs start Friday for Roseville, while the rest play their first games next week.

Roseville High School has two early challenges in this year's Division II boys basketball playoffs.

The team, a No. 15 seed, does not get a first-week bye like some others do, and has its first matchup at 7 p.m. Friday against No. 18 El Camino at home. If it advances to the next round, it will face No. 2 St. Mary's.

Roseville is 20-7 overall this year, and 5-5 in league play, according to MaxPreps.

The last time the Tigers made the playoffs was in the 2005-06 season, where the team fell in the first round to Turlock.

Other local teams appearing in the playoffs this year include:

Granite Bay: The boys team has the No. 5 seed in the Division I playoffs, and will face No. 12 Bethel at home at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Rocklin: The boys and girls teams are both ranked No. 7 in their respective Division II playoffs. The girls face No. 10 Del Campo at home on Tuesday, while the boys face No. 10 Laguna Creek at home on Wednesday.
