PostSubject: Canadian Top 25 Pre-Season High School Rankings - North Pole Hoops   Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:35 pm

Since there are very few interlocking games, I think it is a challenge to come up with a national high school ranking. Nonetheless, here is NPH's strong effort - it might even be right, who knows. The interesting part for those of us in BC are the implied rankings of the BC teams:

(1) Walnut Grove - 4 national ranking
(2) Kitsilano - 7
(3) WRCA - 12
(4) Mouat - 15
(5) Churchill - 17
(6) St. George's - 18
(7) Kelowna - 21

Not sure if the formatting below will carry over from the website, so here is the link: www.northpolehoops.com/2012/10/01/nph-top-25-pre-season-national-hs-team-rankings-2/

NPH Top 25 Newcomers (BC) (via nortpolehoops.com)

Abbotsford’s Yale Lions are BC’s top ranked AAA team, and have suffered only one loss against Canadian competition all year – an early season defeat to Kitsilano. Led by two of the top players in their respective classes, 2013 F J.J. Pankratz and 2015 PG Jauquin Bennett-Boire, the Lions may have the best one-two punch in the province. The only argument to be made against Yale is that they have yet to prove themselves against some of the top teams in BC. However, with only one loss, and impressive victories over Kelowna and Tamanawis, the Yale Lions have earned their ranking, but head coach Al Friesen keeps them playing like a team with everything to prove.

Four words to sum up the Tamanawis Wildcats: young, talented, versatile, and inconsistent. Led by 6-6 2014 G/F Sukhjot Bains and a roster of almost entirely Grade 11’s, the Wildcats are learning to win on the fly. When the shots are falling – like in their early season win against White Rock Christian or their buzzer beating loss to Yale – they look like the best team in the province. However, in their recent double digit losses to those same two teams Tamanawis came out flat and got buried early. First year head coach Mike McKay knows his team needs to find a balance, and when they do the Tamanawis Wildcats are as difficult a matchup as there is in BC.

Surrey’s Holy Cross Crusaders may have shocked some by knocking off Kitsilano this past week, but after an 0-3 start the Crusaders have rattled off 21 straight wins and are far and away the top AA team in the province. With two players standing at 6-7, the 2014 Maduabueke brothers at 6-5, and 6-2 2015 Taylor Browne at the point, Holy Cross may have one of the biggest and most athletic teams in the province. They’ve been running over AA competition all year, and after three early losses to AAA teams, they’ve finally knocked off one of the big boys. Keep an eye on the Holy Cross Crusaders, their program is definitely on the rise.

*Updated from Jan.16, 2014 Ranking Update


From NPH the article regarding BC teams:

" And we’re back!

The first edition of the #NPHTop25 received extensive feedback, positive and negative reviews, along with no shortage of debate! Well, here goes 2014 edition number two, where teams across Canada trade spots and jock for position.
Gleneagle defeated Walnut Grove 83-76 at the Legal Beagle, but we’re not quite ready to hand them the higher spot, with respect to the defending provinical champs, combing the fact that Grove had their star Jadon Cohee recovering from ankle sprain, and more importantly, Gleneagle lost to Grove twice earlier in the season, to make the heads up match up 2-1 in favour of the defending champs.

That being said, Gleneagle climbs the ladder.

Henry Carr Travels out West

Perennial power Henry Carr is currently in British Columbia as this edition of the #NPHTop25 is released. This trip to compete in the Snowball Classic will provide the country with unique perspective as it will be the first time that an NPH Top 5 team from Ontario will go to battle against some of the best in BC.
Within the next couple of weeks, there will be more major tournaments to track from coast-to-coast. At this point in the season, teams have a good understanding of where their at, and where they could go.

City championships are right around the corner, provincial championships are approaching…but first there is still business to take care of, for the opportunity to reach those heights.

The formula is straight forward.

Win. "

*Updated from Jan.30, 2014 Ranking Update


From NPH the article regarding BC teams:

"We enter a decisive period in the high school season, as regional playoffs are right around the corner.

But first, there are major tournaments taking place across the country, that include The 43rd Silver Fox in Hamilton, Sheridan Cup in Brampton, Dairy Town Classic in New Brunswick, and looking ahead into next weekend, the Western Canada tournament takes place in Kelowna.
Henry Carr Rolls Over British Columbia Competition

From the last release of the #NPHTop25 we have received great insight on the national level, as NPH #2-ranked Henry Carr travelled to BC for the Snow Ball Classic and rolled over the competition against three top-10 British Columbia teams. That being said, Carr did not get the chance to take on any of the Top 5 calibre teams, included in the #NPHTop25.

Walnut Grove Plummet

Defending BC provincial champion Walnut Grove and former NPH Top 10 member lost two games at the Vancouver College Emerald Tournament, more than they have all season. The Gators’ success depends heavily on star guard Jadon Cohee (Seattle Commit), who hasn’t been at 100% health. Grove saw the biggest drop in the #NPHTop25..."
