REALLY????? CATHOLIC CENTRAL #1??? Cardston #4?? They graduated almost their whole team!

ITCANTBETRUE said no question and that is a lot of question marks.

Don't know the south teams that well but Calgary frontrunners are expected to be Churchill, Grandin and St. Mary's. BOB and Notre Dame lost most of their key guys. Watch out for JP in Edmonton.

Wipe PK off those rankings. They have 3 or 4 returning players. The core of the team all graduated.

Watch St. FX......they're going to contend. And St. Albert is a 3A school, but they're playing up in 4A for regular season. They should contend as well.

BOB lost quite a few players but they have good coaching so they should be alright, Notre Dame lost most of their key players but they still have the potential to be good, don't know who's coaching at ND though.

Interesting top ten from 12321

No way is Jasper Place should be that low and dont know who is at St. Marys and why they would considered a top Calgary team although that was from a different post and do we think Churchill is good enough to be considered the top ranked team in the province??. I am still betting that CCHS program will be the top team in the south they have always been able to have solid showings every year and I think will be motivated to have a great season. Just my thoughts

STFX should be the top team in Metro( return the bulk of last years team plus some strong juniors moving up)
JP should be the class of the Public league
Churchill, with 3 provincial team players, should be the top team in cowtown and the province.
Cardston, lci, and CCHS will battle for the crown down south- I give the edge to LCI if Gibb is still there?

Top 5
1. Churchill
2. JP
3. LCI
4. Cardston
5. STFX
It is not looking like a particularly strong year in boys basketball.

When and where have CCH had a strong showing? Is that in the pre season rankings when they are traditionally over ranked? Or is at Xmas where they have a brutal reputation around the league? Or is it at the semester break where they inevitably lose two or three players to other schools due to infighting on the team? I guess it could be where they enter the zone tournament with high hopes only to be smoked by the likes of Raymond or cardston.

How many grade 11s coming up at SFX will have an impact? What about JP? Neither of those 2 schools were at the top 2 years ago as grade 10 players in JV. Is it transfers or 11s that will make the difference?

St. Mary's lost their best player last year. I don't think they'll even contend for a div 1 title in Calgary. Churchill has a lot of returning players who were key for them last year. Cardston and LCI will be at a different level in the south. I think CCHS lost too many players to compete with those 2 schools.

Is St Albert declaring to play 4A this year?

St. Mary's will be a contender in Calgary. They return 4 starters including all of their key players (maybe you're thinking of David Kapinga who left 2 years ago) and were in the mix last season and their JV team ran the table last year and will make them a very deep team. Grandin has some key players back from last year and also had some strong grade 11s that played JV last year because of the depth on the senior team. No disputing Churchill though as lead contender in Calgary as most of their key players from last year are back. McNally has some exceptional athletes coming up from JV so they might surprise.

People are misjudging Paul Kane, they have a strong and steady group of young boys. Once stanley tunes them in they will be a dominant team

Pre season rankings are out in Calgary leading up to the HSBC tip off tournament In early December (www.Calgarybasketballclassic.ca). Boys rankings are:

1 Churchill
2 Grandin
3 Bishop o'byrne
4 St Mary's
5 Notre Dame
6 Bishop McNally

I'm told the rankings are made by a panel of Calgary HS coaches. This tourney should set up some good match ups early in the season to see where teams are starting out from!

PK is very young, they graduated every player but 3, and none of those were starters. There is some talent there and some players with some good basketball backgrounds, but no freak athletes or very much height. So solid, yes, top of the pile, not likely this year( only 1 returning grade 12). We will see where coach Stanley will take them.

Here are the full rankings for the Calgary Basketball Classic that runs December 3-8, 2012

A Division
(1) Sir Winston Churchill
(2) Bishop O'Byrne 
(3) Bishop Grandin
(4) St. Mary's
(5) Notre Dame
(6) Bishop McNally 
(7) Western Canada 
(8) St. Francis
(9) Father Lacombe 
(10) Lester B. Pearson
(11) Centennial 
(12) Crescent Heights
(13) EP Scarlett
(14) Ernest Manning
(15) Henry Wise Wood
(16) Bowness

From everything I've heard, I'm surprised to see Notre Dame and Bishop McNally ranked lower than Bishop O'Byrne and St Mary's. I'm also surprised to see Earnest Manning ranked so low given all the talk. Anyone have any insights?

St Mary's had a very young team last year and most of there team returned I believe, McNally lost their 2 best players, not sure how BOB will look and ND lost a couple of their top players and their whole coaching staff.

Thanks for the draw and link. It would be nice to have this forum as a resource for all Alberta tournaments with web site links or even just the draws with results. Does anyone have any others coming up to start off the season they can post?

Don't know the rest of the province that well, other than Churchill is going to be tough to beat, but in the south it will be very competitive this year.

1. Cardston Returned some starters and did a good job of recruiting.
2. Medicine Hat Didn't loose a single player from last years team.
3. LCI Returned Gibb and Karl Also did a great job of recruiting.
4. CCHS Scrappy team lost a lot from last years team.
5. WCHS Rumor is they were forced to declare 4A this year. Would be a contender in 3A but not near talented enough for 4A


The rest will fight for last place.

The rankers will have a fun time coming up with rankings. STFX beats Obyrne, Grandin beats STFX, BOB beats Grandin and Churchill. What a mess but exciting.
