Peter Read Miller's settings is a great baseline. So many different situations that require setting tweaks. My default for focusing;

CIII-2: -1 to +1 (Typically set at 0, but fast action closeup shots at +1 have been working well)
CIII-4:0
CIII-8:2
CIII-9:1
CIII-11:1
CIII-16:1

One thing I noticed reading a whitepaper was the cross-type sensor placement, so if I'm shooting portrait I'll move the focus point up 2 from the center point, not 1 when shooting something like basketball.

Most of the time the defaults are ok but I do like to change III/4 depending on how the players move. For sports staying along the same focal plane like a gymnast on a balance beam I like to use III/4-0 but for a runner coming towards me I like to use III/4-1. Best thing to do is experiment and find out what settings work for you.
