: With the strike appearing to be over, games should all be back on starting on Friday.

: Here is where I see the Open Division as of today:

: 1. Granada Hills - Locked in at 1 unless ECR can beat them at home next week.
: 2. Narbonne - Just cruising along waiting for seedings. Could drop to 3 if ECR beats GH next week.
: 3. El Camino - win over Valencia and good match up vs Brentwood this week to get ready for rematch with GH next week at home.
: 4. Westchester - have games with Pali and Hamilton next week to solidify a top 4 seed.
: 5. Hamilton - has good games with Pali and Westchester to get ready for playoffs. Win over Westchester could get them a Top 4 seed.
: 6. Eagle Rock - No tough games before playoffs - will that hurt them down the line? Can't see them moving up much.
: 7. Birmingham - tough games at ECR and GH with a solid Cleveland team in between to get ready for playoffs.
: 8. Legacy - No real hard games before playoffs, but I think they can hold on for 8th slot.

: On the outside looking in: Palisades, Cleveland, Carson, Taft

: The top 3 seeds are probably going to be determined by the ECR vs. GH game next week.

: If ECR wins, they probably get the 1 seed, GH gets 2, and Narbonne 3. I would have to do a dive into league tie-breakers to confirm. It gets down to record vs common opponents, win against highest ranked MaxPreps team, etc. But the winner of West Valley League is getting the 1 seed.

: If GH wins, then it should stay GH-Narbonne-ECR.

: Thankfully, it looks like the strike is over and kids can get back to school and learning and back on the fields/courts!

: Looking forward to thoughtful, civil discussion on this list.

Granada has been ranked much higher all through out the season than ElCo. GH with a 12pt win at home already in the books vs ElCo. ElCo would need to get a W vs Brentwood on 1/26 then blow out GH by 20+ on 1/30. Then maybe they could be "considered" for the top seed. A close win is not going to get it done. That won't jump them 50+ spots (when looking at the State rankings).
