Boys' basketball: Buckley (27-0) is in elite company

 Tiny Sherman Oaks Buckley is 27-0 and seeded No. 1 in the Southern Section Division 4AA boys' basketball playoffs. The Griffins, which returned 10 players from last season's team, are one of what appears to be at least four unbeaten teams in the state. Santa Ana Mater Dei (27-0), Chula Vista Sweetwater (23-0) and Bakersfield Northwest Christian are also unbeaten. Buckley's best wins this season are over San Diego Parker, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame and Woodland Hills Taft. Junior Austin Butler is averaging 15 points a game. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com
