The AA Lower Mainlands should be interesting as there is only going to be 1 berth to Kamloops and yet there are 3 good teams in Brit, STM and Boyd.

In my opinion, I would put STM over Brit.

Tyler Verde of PRSS is a great player. But, do you think Rupert is a top 10 AA team with him and only him? They'll probably qualify for AAs out of the Northwest, but does that make them top 10?

I put them there because they have alot of provinically experienced gr. 12's. They are well coached and should be strong and deep.

It definately could happen. Brit won it all and return two huge contributors from that team. STM has a strong group of juniors and a couple decent gr.12's. They are gonna have to prove a higher ranking by beating a few good teams. It is no different for any other team. Britt is the champ until someone knocks them off.

HM Brentwood
HM College Heights
HM Duchess Park
HM Hugh Boyd
HM Ladysmith

Last year the guys who got the vast majority of their minutes at provincials were grade 12's, except for Verde. I agree they have a good coach, and Verde is a stud, but I wouldn't say the rest of their grade 12's have experience playing at provincials.

Also, who does Mission have?

Pre-season, couldn't justify putting a team at 2 that didn't get off the island, plus SMUS has some good grade 11s back and a really strong junior team coming up. Maybe Sa-Hali or S. Okanagan should be 2 as they have a ton of provincially tested players back, but not Lambrick, simply because it's pre-season and they weren't at provs last year.

Which returning grade 11's do SMUS have? They lost Jure Erlic as well as Tycho Smith .

SMUS' roster 2009-10

Hard to tell from this, but I believe a few of those guys are. I definitely remember a couple of their better players being grade 11s, I'll check in the AA program later, but I believe their page will be the same as the link I provided.

If I revised my completely speculative rankings based on what you are saying, I'd move SMUS to 4th and bump Sahali and S. Okanagan up. I'm confident they have a couple strong grade 11s back and their juniors are very strong.

Keep in mind, these rankings in this thread by anyone mean nothing to the actual committee that does up the rankings. Mere speculation.

This looks like a good list too. I heard that Duchess Park might be building another decent team. S. Okanagan is a little lower than I think but top ten looks strong. Brentwood and Graham lose a ton and won't be close to as good as last year but they did make the tournament and won their regions last year.

Graham has quite a few players back from AAs last year, albeit they lost Micah and Chris and one more grade 12. But Mannes is back and they had 11 grade 10's, including Mannes, and 2 grade 11's on their AA provincials' roster last year.

I know they return a bunch of players but most of them never saw the court. I'm not sure if they got much playing provincial experience. But should be somewhere on the list to start due to their strong year last year with some returning players. Brentwood lost their whole back court and one of their bigs. They do have the big guy up front but not much else.

There were 2 or 3 grade 10's and an 11 who saw the court and were solid to good.

As you've pointed out, Brentwood won't be too great, but they have that huge kid and they did make it last year, so HM for them is what I thought.

Rankings are extremely hard to judge, especially with merely seeing scores. I don't envy the ranking committees of any classification.

They had almost all grade 11s last year, and the grade 11s were their best players. They also have a strong junior group moving up. A group that finished 9th at junior provincials.

Any particular grade 11s that really stood out on Lambrick?

Lambrick Park will win the island. Brentwood and SMUS will be right there aswell. Ladysmith and Shawnigan will also be good and there will be some fights for the three berths to provincials.
