New basketball rankings

The snow has canceled tonight’s games, allowing me to get an early jump on this week’s rankings. Hopefully, they’ll be able to play tomorrow.

It was an interesting week for the boys, with the third and fifth-ranked teams from last week falling (in Roosevelt’s case, twice). Meanwhile, Kentridge and Decatur moved into a two-way tie for first in the SPSL North. Meanwhile, Lincoln kept winning and clinched its division in the Narrows League, and the Abes — one of the sweetest nicknames in Washington — could no longer be left out.

For the girls, I must admit a mistake last week: I had the Puyallup girls record wrong, missing one loss. I had to change accordingly this week, but Puyallup isn’t too far away from the top 10, remaining on the radar. Moses Lake and Bellarmine Prep move into the top 10, as does Hanford in Class 3A.

Notable boys games this week (weather permitting):

Franklin at Inglemoor, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.

Kentridge at Federal Way, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.

Seattle Prep at O’Dea, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.

Decatur at Kentwood, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

Mt. Rainier at Renton, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

Auburn at Enumclaw, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

Notable girls games this week:

Mead at Lewis & Clark, Thursday, 5:30 p.m.

Seattle Prep at Bainbridge, Thursday, 6:15 p.m.

Skyview at Prairie, Thursday, 7 p.m.

Newport at Bellevue, Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

Snohomish at Lake Stevens, Monday, 7:30 p.m.
