3/5: High School Boys Basketball: CIF Southern Section Division 2A Final, Santa Barbara vs. Lynwood: It’s the Dons’ first CIF final in a quarter century. In 1991, they defeated Marina, 50-49, to win the Division 1A championship. Their previous appearance had been way back in 1935, when they outscored Long Beach Poly, 20-17. In other words, this is a special occasion, made possible by a special senior class: Bolden Brace, Nick Busch, Ben Clay, Paul DeBruynkops, and JM Cage. The Dons (30-1) are the top-seeded team, and Lynwood (23-5) is No. 2. The Knights are young (a freshman, Oscar Lopez, starts at point guard), and they have gotten stronger throughout the season. Noon. The Honda Ctr., 2695 E. Katella Ave., Anaheim. $10-$18. Visit cifss.org.

3/5: High School Boys Soccer: CIF Southern Section Division 1 Final, Santa Barbara vs. Loyola: The Dons (22-5-3) joined their basketball schoolmates for a championship doubleheader in Orange County. In Tuesday’s semifinal, they defeated Los Alamitos in overtime, 1-0. Loyola (24-4-1) advanced on a penalty-kick shootout, 5-3, after a scoreless tie against Warren. Santa Barbara will be shooting for its seventh CIF soccer title. Number 6 was a 3-0 win over Dos Pueblos in 2010. 5 pm. Warren High School, 8141 DePalma St., Downey. $5-$10. Visit cifss.org.
