: : La Canada will probably win league again...why not ranked?
: Should be ranked. La Canada has quality wins over Colony, Riverside Poly, Viewpoint, and Blair. The Spartans played an extremely tough preseason- Sierra Canyon, Damien, Calabasas, Oaks Christian. and others. In fact, La Canada only played three teams in the preseason with losing records. Coaches who vote often look at overall record and do not have time to thoroughly research every team. it is not a good system anyway when coaches in their own divisions rank the teams. That would be similar to college coaches ranking teams for the NCAA Tournament including their own. I have always thoguht that high school basketball experts who closely follow the sport should do the rankings- not coaches within their own division.
La Canada plays in a league thatís not very strong and they lost to Blair the 2nd time around.
La Canada also lost to another team they beat earlier in the season in Bonita.
Losses to Saugus & losses to Damien by 26 Pts & Rancho Cucamonga by 17 Pts donít help but losing to Renaissance Academy has also hurt them in the rankings,Renaissance lost to Monrovia who is the same Rio Honda league as La Canada.
Monrovia is 2-5 in league and lost LC by 20 points.
Itís how you finish that matters the most,Colony for example has won 13 straight since the LC game.
The poll is accurate!! What team would you take out and replace with LC??
