Preseason boys basketball rankings

These are going to run in the paper tomorrow, but I figured I’d give a first look at our preseason rankings for boys basketball.

Two things struck me as I spoke with coaches around the area:

1) The SPSL 4A is going to be awfully good. Kentridge, Decatur, Kentwood, Bethel and Curtis are going to make getting through the regular season a challenge for any team.

2) Good luck to all the teams in the 3A Sea-King District. KingCo 3A and the Metro League are going to be beasts this season. Just look at the top 10: six of the teams are from that district. Only four will go to the state tournament. You do the math.

I’m sure you’ll all have quite a few thoughts on these, so here they are(2006 rankings in parentheses):

Class 4A

1. Ferris (29-0)

2. Franklin (24-3)

3. Kentridge (25-4)

4. Prairie (Bush Praire) (14-13)

5. Decatur (24-4)

6. Inglemoor (13-10)

7. Kentwood (16-13)

8. Bellarmine Prep (Tacoma) (12-11)

9. Gig Harbor (12-11)

10. Pasco (20-9)

Class 3A

1. Rainier Beach (20-9)

2. Lakes (22-4)

3. Seattle Prep (17-11)

4. Bellevue (22-7)

5. Auburn (16-11)

6. Mercer Island (16-8)

7. Enumclaw (17-5)

8. O’Dea (25-5)

9. Bainbridge (25-4)

10. Franklin Pierce (11-18)
