Boys Basketball League Predictions Class 3A
I realized I have not released my Class 3A boys or girls League Predictions. I will give my top 3 for all leagues and a quick breakdown.
- DSST-Green Valley Ranch
The Confluence is much improved this year and should be a great battle for the league crown. Fort Lupton, Englewood, Riverdale Ridge, DSST-Byers, DSST-Green Valley Ranch, Ridgeview Academy, and William Smith will all compete for the top 3 spots in league. DSST-Byers and Englewood look to be the early favorites to finish 1st and 2nd in the Confluence league but a lot of season left to play.
- Middle Park
- Lake County
The Frontier League may be a bit down this year with only a handful of teams with .500 records and above. DSST-Montview is the early favorite to win the league but Middle Park, Lake County, Sheridan, and Bennett all will be competitive for the league title.
The Intermountain League once again looks to be very competitive with 5 very solid teams. Alamosa, Centauri, and Montezuma-Cortez are the three teams who have soared to the top very early. Pagosa Springs and Monte Vista will be competitive in games but will have to pull a few upsets to try and move into the top 3. Centauri is the early favorite to win the league, but Alamosa and Cortez will prove tough challenges for Centauri.
- Faith Christian
Doug Wright is covering the Metro League and will have an updated Report on the Metro League. These are his past rankings.
- Resurrection Christian
The Patriot League is one of the most competitive leagues in Class 3A. The teams have soar to the top right now but plenty of depth in the league and I would not be surprised to see a few upsets. Resurrection Christian is the #1 team in Class 3A and are the favorites to win the Patriot League. Sterling and Eaton wrap up the top 3 but look for University, Strasburg, Estes Park, and Platte Valley to push the top teams.
- Manitou Springs
Another very loaded league is the Tri-Peaks League. Vanguard is the favorite right now to win the Tri-Peaks, but a very deep league will mean Vanguard must bring their A game every night. Lamar and Manitou Springs wrap up the top 3 this week but St. Mary’s, Salida, Atlas Prep, La Junta, C.S Christian, and Buena Vista will all be challengers.
- Coal Ridge
- Grand Valley
The Western Slope league is not as deep as in past years but still have some very good teams. Gunnison right now is the favorite to win the Western Slope but are not a lock especially with their loss to Moffat County. Coal Ridge and Grand Valley wrap up my top 3 but look for Delta, Aspen, and Moffat County to all push for any of the top 3 spots.
