Top basketball guards in CIF Southern Section, LA City Section

The CIF Southern Section and City Section's top basketball guards to watch this 2023-24 season

Some of the NBA's best guards prepped in Southern California. 

Jrue Holiday (went to Campbell Hall), Russell Westbrook (Leuzinger), Klay Thompson (Santa Margarita) and James Harden (Artesia) come to mind pretty quickly. However, many more that spent countless hours in high school gyms in the Southland have gone on to grace the NBA hardwood.

In fact, a number of college freshman are already making an impact at the college level this 2023-24 campaign. Former Notre Dame/Sherman Oaks standouts Dusty Stromer (Gonzaga) and Caleb Foster (Duke) are transitioning seamlessly, along with Corona Centennial's Jared McCain (Duke), Harvard-Westlake's Brady Dunlap (St. John's) and Taft's Keyon Kensie (San Diego), to name a few.
