Girls basketball rankings

I’m keeping this short, since there’s plenty of prep hoop action at the King Holiday Hoopfest today.

The 4A girls rankings were extremely difficult this week since Auburn Riverside, Moses Lake, Mead and Roosevelt all lost last week — and Bellarmine Prep was taken apart by No. 2 Kentwood today (these rankings are supposed to reflect games through Saturday, but I did bump Bellarmine down a notch).

The problem is, what teams are consistently better than those teams that lost, most of which lose very close decisions. Federal Way beat Auburn Riverside by 3, but lost earlier by 17. The Eagles get in this week’s rankings at No. 9, but still are a notch below No. 8 Riverside.

Edmonds-Woodway continues to win and vaults to No. 5.

In 3A, Lakeside and Liberty both stumbled, so Franklin jumps in at No. 9 and the No. 10 spot goes to Hanford of Richland, which is beating some decent 4A teams over in the Big Nine.
