Class 4A, 3A and 2A girls basketball rankings — Final

I’m heading out to cover the West Central District championship games at Showare in Kent, so I don’t have as much time as I’d like to discuss this week’s girls basketball rankings – which, by the way, are the final rankings for 2012-13. 

I must say I feel pretty good about the top-10s for Class 4A, 3A and 2A. Hey, they’re all still playing at least! Of course, I was able to make sure of that by dropping teams that are not still alive – in 4A that would be Chiawana (No. 9 last week) and in 3A both Mount Spokane (previously No. 6) and Ferndale (No. 8).


Just another reminder that you can find all of the regional brackets here. Some of the final seedings will be decided today and the rest of them tomorrow, so you’ll have to check back 

To be honest, I still think Chiawana might be one of the top-10 4A teams in the state and I debated about keeping the Riverhawks in the final rankings. After all, they took No. 2 Mead to overtime last week and then were eliminated by No. 4 Gonzaga Prep.

Class 4A, 3A and 2A girls basketball rankings — Week 11

This is always an interesting time for rankings, because you generally get some really good teams squaring off in the various post-season tournaments. So, it’s sometimes difficult to figure out just how to arrange the top-10, and whether to drop a team out if they lose or what.

And speaking of tournaments, just a reminder that you can find the latest playoff brackets here.

I saw a couple of exciting games in the SPSL 4A tournament last Thursday, when Mount Rainier came from behind to beat Beamer and Auburn Riverside became only the second team to beat Puyallup (the Vikings had lost only to Beamer, twice).

There certainly wasn’t much separating those teams (at least on that night). But I’ll tell you, when you’ve got Brittany McPhee, like top-ranked Mount Rainier does, you’ve got a good chance in any game. She’s a special player.

So, let’s get to it.
