: 1. Long Beach Poly- Still play Troy, Sierra and Windward. They are in good position to be the #1 seed if they win 2 of the 3 games.

: 2. Sierra Canyon- Can be the #1 seed if they beat Poly. Still have a tough one against Windward. They are likely a #2 to #4 seed

: 3. Mater Dei- Tough loss to Rosary. If they beat Rosary second time around they will get the #2 seed as they beat Sierra. That is the only game they play that will have any bearing on their seed. If they lose to Rosary expect a 5 seed

: 4. Etiwanda- They never win the big games. Always just behind the best. No reason to see anything other than that. Only game on their schedule that can hurt their seed is Orangewood. I expect them to be the 4 seed with a loss to Orangewood maybe a 6

: 5. Centennial- A notch below the top ones. Great guard play. Lots of shooting. No games on their schedule of importance other than King games. I expect a #5 seed but I also expect them to lose to King once which may drop them to 6 or 7

: 6. Rosary- Great win vs MD. Have some tough losses early. If they beat MD expect them to rise to the 3 or 4 seed. If they lose to them round 2 then expect a 6 seed. Had a great game with Troy but that matchup changed. No other tough games

: 7. Windward- This team is playing really well. I could see them going all the way up to a #2 seed with wins over Poly and Sierra Canyon. Always play their best late in the year. Only team that never fills their schedule to the max. Not sure how I feel about that but it works as they are always a danger in playoffs


: 8. Orangewood- As of now they beat Lynwood which was my 8th. They have some strange losses but they can play their way in with games against Chaminade and Etiwanda. Wins over either of those two and they will be the 8 seed. If they lose both expect another

: 9. Lynwood- They were the lock 8 seed until a loss to Orangewood. They have no games that can play themselves back in so unless the other teams lose they should bypass Open

: 10. Harvard Westlake- Playing very well. Best player in SOCAL. Coach doing a tremendous job. Beat Chaminade last night and if they sweep them they will be the 8 seed. Chaminade is too good now that they have their full team

: 11. Chaminade- Would have been a lock for 8 seed if they beat HW last night. Now they would need to beat HW and Orangewood. Any loss to HW, Marlborough or Orangewood and they are out.


King just beat centennial 58-44,
There are teams trying to play themselves out of the open. It will be interesting
