: : : : : : : : : : : Since the Daily News no longer really gives any coverage to girl's basketball, here's a stab at what at Top 10 would look like for their coverage area.

: : : : : : : : : : : Week 5 - December 10

: : : : : : : : : : : 1. Sierra Canyon (8-0) - Just cruising. Barring an off night, no one in Valley can beat them. Impressive week with wins over ECR, Alemany, and Serra - and none of them were close.
: : : : : : : : : : : 2. Alemany (9-2) - Wins over Serra and ECR. No shame in losing to Sierra Canyon right now. Big game this week as they host Windward on Friday.
: : : : : : : : : : : 3. Granada Hills (9-1) - Won Burroughs tourney with comeback win vs. Harvard Westlake and then pasted Chaminade in finals. Off this week for finals.
: : : : : : : : : : : 4. Harvard Westlake (6-4) - Lost to Brentwood and Granada Hills. They are up and down right now. Get some help in January with a transfer from Providence.
: : : : : : : : : : : 5. Chaminade (4-4) - Beat Brentwood, dominated by Granada Hills. Which team is the real Nade? No schedule showing until Jan 2.
: : : : : : : : : : : 6. El Camino Real (3-5) - Tough week of losses to Sierra Canyon, Serra, and Alemany (almost won). Playing tough waiting for transfer. Off this week for finals.
: : : : : : : : : : : 7. Valencia (4-5) - Foothill League play starts Friday as they travel to Saugus. Winner has leg up for league title.
: : : : : : : : : : : 8. Saugus (10-1) - Record is deceiving as they have played a really weak schedule. Needs a win over Valencia Friday to move up.
: : : : : : : : : : : 9. Crescenta Valley (5-5) - Only quality win is vs. Foothill Tech. Host Burroughs in league opener.
: : : : : : : : : : : 10. Burroughs (9-0) - Nice record, but who have they played? Need to beat Crescenta Valley to get in driver's seat for league title.

: : : : : : : : : : : Observations:

: : : : : : : : : : : It's Sierra Canyon's world and everyone else is living in it right now. They aren't just winning, they are pounding people. Will this be the year they can knock off Windward?

: : : : : : : : : : : Granada solidified their front-runner status in City Section with easy win over Chaminade. ECR is losing but playing SS Open level teams tough. Best games in City this year will be Granada vs. ECR.

: : : : : : : : : : : The top 6 teams have really separated themselves. There is a hard line after 6 right now. And not many teams stepping up to jump in to the Top 10.

: : : : : : : : : : : Not a lot of games this week as many schools have finals. Best game by far is Alemany hosting Windward. Alemany is really surprising people this year with their strong play.

: : : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : : : Hopefully, there will be civil, rational discussions on the pros and cons of each team or any I may have missed. Looking for a little more than "Team X sucks" or "Team Y should be there".

: : : : : : : : : : : Here's to a great season, full of exciting games and no injuries!

: : : : : : : : : : Thanks for putting this together but your statement about, "no one beating Sierra in the Valley" is not entirely accurate. Granada beat them by 10 in Burroughs so they are beatable. Just saying..

: : : : : : : : : Sierra has not played Granada this year yet,

: : : : : : : : The guy is still living in Fall League

: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : Is this the Granada that lost to Valencia?

: : : : : : It's the Granada that put a major beat down on Chaminade and Harvard Westlake, Boom!

: : : : : SS parents are so sensitive, can't take a lost to City Teams gently. Get off your high horse, you guys are beatable!

: : : :
: : : : 1. Fall league doesn't count. It never has and never will. In any sport. So just stop talking about any fall league results for any team.

: : : : 2. January 5 - Granada Hills at Sierra Canyon. I would think it will be a tough ticket given all the talk on this board! LOL

: : : Hold on to the fall league win as long as you can. You just lost to Valencia. The record that counts is currently Sierra 8-0 (playing in real tournaments)and Granada 9-1 (playing 0 open division teams). Chaminade and Harvard Westlake will not be open this year. Good luck..

: : So now HW and Nade are not worthy opponents, geeez. Bottom line GH 1, Sierra 0.

: Well you better tell Max Preps. They have no record of your fall league win. haha
: California Rankings:
: 1. Sierra Canyon
: California Division 1 rankings:
: 1. Sierra Canyon
: Southern Section Rankings:
: 1. Sierra Canyon

Pop's attempt at SoCal Top 20 is way more worthy then this "Daily News Area". Get over it, the paper ditched Girls basketball, it's time to broaden our horizons. Having SoCal Top 20 is worthy and should be the only thing worth debating. OC Top ### = trash. Ventura/Inland, nobody ever posts nothing, I'm with updating Pop's list vs all these other listings.
