Boys basketball rankings (12/21)

Without Tony Wroten, Garfield showed it had the skill to be a 4A contender. With one of the country’s top recruits, the Bulldogs are the new favorite in Class 4A. They’ll carry that ranking with them to Muncie, Ind., where they will play next week in a tournament filled with some of the country’s top teams.

Other developments from a snow-shortened week:

-Federal Way recovered from its loss to Kentridge to beat Auburn in the SPSL North, and in the South division, Decatur took the upper hand with a win against Curtis.

-Gonzaga Prep made it clear it’s the favorite in Spokane with a win against Shadle Park.

-Rainier Beach won’t have Aaron Dotson for a week or two; the Vikings will survive.

-Mt. Tahoma, ranked in the top five last week, stumbled against River Ridge, a Class 2A team.
