State girls basketball rankings — Week 3

Below you’ll find the lastest girls basketball rankings for Class 4A, 3A and 2A, which will be the final edition for 2014. I will revise again on Jan. 5, 2015.

There is some mild juggling in both 4A and 2A, but nothing major (Woodland stays in at No. 10 in 2A despite losing both of its games last week — because those two losses were to the Nos. 1 and 2 teams).

The big change in 3A is the well-deserved addition of West Seattle at No. 6 after last week’s impressive victory over Lakeside (which was No. 6 and unbeaten at the time). I kept Lakeside in (at No. 7), with Cleveland at No. 8 and Holy Names at No. 9.

Does the Metro League deserve five spots in the top-10 (including Bishop Blanchet at No. 2)? Too early for me to tell, to be honest, but we all know it’s a dynamite conference. Lakeside has beaten former-No. 1 Cleveland, which in turn has beaten Holy Names.

Cleveland did not fare too well in its first three games at the Nike Tournament of Champions in Arizona, going 1-2 — but that is a super-tough tournament and I decided not to penalize the Eagles any further. They played again earlier this afternoon and I haven’t seen that score yet (these records are through last Saturday).

There are some interesting holiday tournaments and I’m especially anxious to see how Lynnwood does in the Nike Interstate Shootout in Oregon.
