Boys basketball rankings — 4A, 3A, 2A

After a week break from the rankings, we’re back at it. I didn’t penalize teams that struggled at out-of-state tournaments. A lot of the tournaments had stacked fields and it’s hard to compare those teams with in-state ones. It’s also difficult to compare out-of-state teams in different tournaments.

That being said, I did move Garfield up one spot ahead of Bellevue due to the Bulldogs’ tournament win in Las Vegas. There is plenty of season left for teams to jockey for a better ranking.
