Preseason girls basketball rankings

Even with one last week of football remaining, it’s time to take a look at basketball. And in today’s paper, we had our girls basketball preview, which took a look at Auburn Riverside.

Along with that story, we presented our preseason girls basketball rankings. Auburn Riverside is at the top in Class 3A with a host of area teams right behind. Lewis & Clark of Spokane is on top in Class 4A, but Kentwood, Jackson and Snohomish appear ready for big seasons, too.

So here they are, our preseason girls basketball rankings (2006-07 records in parentheses). What’s your take?

Class 4A

1. Lewis & Clark (Spokane) 26-3

2. Prairie (Brush Prairie) 20-5

3. Kentwood 28-1

4. Mead (Spokane) 24-7

5. Jackson 23-4

6. Moses Lake 21-4

7. Mount Tahoma (Tacoma) 27-2

8. Snohomish 17-10

9. Bellarmine Prep (Tacoma) 16-11

10. Skyview (Vancouver) 19-7

Class 3A

1. Auburn Riverside 27-2

2. Issaquah 21-7

3. Seattle Prep 23-5

4. Meadowdale 26-2

5. Lakes (Lakewood) 18-6

6. Kennedy 18-10

7. Hanford 12-8

8. Newport 10-11

9. Auburn 8-13

10. Skyline 23-5

I’ll be back with the boys basketball rankings tonight.

Morning Stars

1. Breanne Faehnrich, Liberty, girls basketball. Scored 24 points in Liberty’s 67-63 victory agaist Hazen.

2. Jeff Forbes, Federal Way, boys basketball. Led FW with 20 points in a 86-61 win against Mount Tahoma.

3. Monica Nevi, Hazen, girls basketball. Had a game-high 29 points in losing effort against Liberty.

Tonight’s top games

1. West Seattle at Mariner, boys basketball, 7:30 p.m. Good early look, in a nonleague game, between two teams on my radar this season.

2. Kentlake at Bethel, girls basketball, 7:30 p.m. Two teams that just missed our top 10 square off; don’t be surprised if either of them moves up there some time this season.

3. Skyline at Eastlake, boys basketball, 7:30 p.m. Battle for the Plateau won’t be a nonleague game next season, when Skyline jumps to 4A.
