Just like McEachern last year Grayson, Georgia #1 in the Nation
« on: January 10, 2020, 03:16:23 PM »

I was going to do this so but Max-Prep did it for me, a ratings of regular high schools. The only thing i would change is have Dorman, South Carolina #2. I have seen both Grayson and Dorman 6 times each and they are the real deal. Grayson has beaten all the best teams in Georgia.

Note: As long as Sharife Cooper  is at McEachern they can never be counted out.

1. Grayson (Loganville, Ga.), 15-1
The Peach State has developed into a high school basketball hotbed in recent years and this season is no different as Grayson ranks atop the list of non-academy based schools. The Rams boast signature wins over Milton (Ga.), Mountain Brook (Birmingham, Ala.), Memphis East (Memphis, Tenn.), McEachern (Powder Springs, Ga.) and Shiloh (Snellville, Ga.).

2. DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.), 10-2
The Washington Catholic Athletic Conference powerhouse is coming off back-to-back wins over ranked opponents, knocking off No. 17 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) 71-60 and No. 10 St. John's 68-62.

3. Dorman (Roebuck, S.C.), 14-1
The Cavaliers face in-state opponents for the remainder of the year after notching impressive wins over Huntington Prep (Huntington, W.Va.), Cannon (Concord, N.C.), Greensboro Day (Greensboro, N.C.), Whitney Young (Chicago), St. Francis (Alpharetta, Ga.) and No. 10 St. John's.

4. Centennial (Corona, Calif.), 15-2
After two early season losses, the Huskies have reeled off 10 consecutive wins, including tournament titles at the Tarkanian Classic and King Cotton Classic.

5. Rancho Christian (Temecula, Calif.), 15-2
A big weekend lies ahead for the Eagles as a rematch with No. 9 Sierra Canyon awaits on Saturday night. Rancho Christian won the first meeting this season 85-81 in overtime.

6. Archbishop Stepinac (White Plains, N.Y.), 8-2
Look to build on an impressive national resume in a matchup against unbeaten Rutgers Prep (Somerset, N.J.) on Sunday at the Empire Invitational.

7. Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.), 8-3
Bounced back from three straight losses in a big way with a conference win against No. 14 Gonzaga 62-54.

8. Minnehaha Academy (Minneapolis, Minn.), 8-2
Notched a signature win over No. 9 Sierra Canyon 78-58 behind dominant games from 5-star duo Chet Holmgren and Jalen Suggs.

9. Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.), 15-2
Split a pair of meetings in Minnesota over the weekend, taking down previous No. 12 Patrick School 71-56 before losing to No. 15 Minnehaha Academy 78-58. The Trailblazers have an opportunity to avenge their loss to No. 11 Rancho Christian on Jan. 11.

10. St. John's (Washington, D.C.), 13-2
Narrowly fell to No. 2 DeMatha 68-62 in a tough conference loss this week. The Cadets have an impressive national resume that includes a runner-up finish at the Beach Ball Classic.

11. Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wash.), 10-1
Outscoring in-state opponents by 40.6 points per contest this season.

12. St. Frances Academy (Baltimore), 18-1
Faces a major test this weekend at the Ascender Classic, taking on the host No. 14 IMG Academy on Jan. 11.

13. Scotlandville (Baton Rouge, La.), 20-2
Captured the title at the Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic, knocking off state title contenders Male (Louisville, Ky.) 59-39 and Tampa Catholic (Tampa, Fla.) 70-56 in the semifinals and championship game, respectively.

14. Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.), 10-4
Dropped their fourth decision of the year last night, falling to conference foe No. 7 Paul VI 62-54. The Eagles will need to rebound quickly with a showdown against No. 2 DeMatha looming on Jan. 13.

15. La Crosse Central (La Crosse, Wis.), 6-0
Defeated six in-state opponents by 36 points per contest. A national perspective-defining showdown with No. 8 Minnehaha Academy looms on Feb. 1.

16. Duncanville (Texas), 15-2
Favorites to repeat as UIL Class 6A state champions have won 34 consecutive games against in-state opponents dating back to last season.

After capturing a major event title at the Les Schwab Invitional, the Monarchs fell to No. 2 DeMatha 71-60 at the Cancer Research Classic.

The top-ranked team from the Prairie State boasts quality in-state wins over O'Fallon, East St. Louis, Morgan Park (Chicago) and Mundelein.

19. Lee (Montgomery, Ala.), 18-0
After finishing as state runner-up last season, this group will look to unseat the three-time defending state champions Mountain Brook.

20. Long Island Lutheran (Brookville, N.Y.), 10-2
The Crusaders are off to a strong start after third place finishes in both the Iolani Classic and Beach Ball Classic. This weekend they take on unbeaten Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) on Jan. 11 at the Empire Invitational.

23. Briarcrest Christian (Eads, Tenn.), 13-3
Notched a signature 32-22 victory over IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) to boost their national resume immensely heading into the new year.

24. Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas, Nev.), 12-2
The Gaels have faced a lot of adversity throughout the 2019-20 basketball season, dealing with injuries and losing transfers just before the year. Will anything stop their quest for a ninth consecutive state championship?

25. Lawrence North (Indianapolis), 8-0
Appears to be the team to beat in the Hoosier State this year after an early season victory against preseason favorite Lawrence Central (Indianapolis).
