This is what we think will happen during Sunday’s selection meetings and what we hope will happen. Go inside as well to check out which teams look solid to be top seeds in each “regular” division.
A group of three newcomers this week are led by red-hot La Verne Lutheran, and also include Deer Valley and La Costa Canyon. Corona Centennial, L.A. Loyola and L.A. Windward are out after losing in respective section quarterfinals.
There’s not much movement this week, but expect that to change in the next two weeks as section playoffs tip off around the state. Red-hot Windward of Los Angeles and Pleasant Grove of Elk Grove are this week’s newcomers. Rancho Cucamonga win over Etiwanda also creates rankings and playoff ramifications.
Where to drop St. John Bosco? That is the question of the week after Braves fall twice, but opponents were No. 2 Mater Dei and No. 4 Bishop Montgomery. New Top 20 for girls and another look at divisional state rankings coming early this week as well.
Long Beach Poly remains No. 1 in the state rankings with its only loss to the nation’s top-rated team. Mater Dei climbs to No. 2 with Sheldon up to No. 3. New Top 20 for girls and first look at divisional state rankings coming early this week as well.
Bishop O’Dowd, Bishop Montgomery and Bullard bump their way up from the preseason list but Long Beach Poly remains on top. Next regular season rankings will be done after the major holiday invitational tournaments.
It’s time to re-launch basketball content on CalHiSports.com and Long Beach Poly has the returning firepower to start the 2012-13 season in the No. 1 position. It could be one of the best years ever, though, for teams and top players from Northern California. By Ronnie Flores & Mark Tennis.
