: With basketball season just around the corner I thought I would try my hand at ranking the different divisions in CIF-SS. Now with Division 5A I am not where near an expert on the teams down here. Most of the teams are either small private schools or schools that haven't done well in basketball or are the bottom teams in their leagues. With that being said, I can see some parity and it is a complete guess on which teams are truly the top teams. So here is my guess for the top 40 teams in Division 5A. I know I will have some teams either too high or too low. Also, I put some last place teams in tough leagues in the top 40 but if any of these teams were to finish above 500 I feel that they would make the playoffs based upon their league strength.

: Here are my rankings:

: 1. Santa Maria Valley Christian
: 2. Moreno Valley Riverside Education Academy
: 3. Victor Valley Christian
: 4. Coastal Christian
: 5. Lucerne Valley
: 6. Pasadena AGBU
: 7. Wiseburn Da Vinci
: 8. La Reina
: 9. Savanna
: 10. Capistrano Valley Christian
: 11. La Verne Lutheran
: 12. Crossroads Christian
: 13. Santa Clarita Christian
: 14. Thousand Oaks Hillcrest Christian
: 15. La Sierra Academy
: 16. Beacon Hill
: 17. Laguna Beach
: 18. Public Safety Academy
: 19. Pilgrim
: 20. Ramona Convent
: 21. Connelly
: 22. San Luis Obispo Classical Academy
: 23. University Prep
: 24. Highland Hall
: 25. Orange County Christian
: 26. Villanova Prep
: 27. Price
: 28. Redlands Adventist
: 29. Bishop Diego
: 30. Shandon
: 31. Packinghouse Christian
: 32. Santa Rosa Academy
: 33. Bellflower
: 34. Los Amigos
: 35. Littlerock
: 36. Magnolia
: 37. Norte Vista
: 38. Century
: 39. Orange
: 40. Arlington

It's an interesting list and a complicated division. If you were ranking purely on who the best teams are, Los Amigos, Magnolia, and Century would likely be in the top 10, but none of those teams will likely qualify for CIF playoffs by record or league finish.

Laguna Beach finished ranked #8 last year in 5A but plays in a bigger, better league and did not qualify by league finish and the division had 40-something automatic qualifiers, so no at-large bids.

Coastal Christian, La Reina, Santa Clarita Christian, LaSierra Academy, AGBU Pasadena are teams that stand out to me at first glance.
