After studying all the results of the holiday tournaments, there are two newcomers to the first boys basketball State Top 25 rankings of 2022. The difficult part is not identifying the top teams, but making sense of which teams were not at full strength against key foes or had to drop out of holiday tournaments because of the ongoing COVID-19 surge. Sierra Canyon remains No. 1, but how much will reigning Mr. Basketball Amari Bailey actually play this year? Newcomers are traditional powers Etiwanda and Salesian of Richmond.
