MileHigh Prep Report Boys Basketball Week 5 Rankings (Class 3A thru 1A)

We move into 2023 and I feel this is when things really start to matter in terms of Districts, Regionals, and State.  I feel the basketball season has 4 parts.  Part 1 is before Christmas, Part 2 is after Christmas/League Play, Part 3 is the District Tournament/Regionals, and Part 4 is the State Tournament.  Also, this week or next week look for an article by Kerry Sherman on 1A Boys and Girls basketball.

Class 4A

1. Holy Family (5-2)
2. Eagle Ridge Academy (6-1)

Class 3A

 Last Week Result
1. Faith Christian (5-0)1 (2 weeks)
2. Prospect Ridge Academy (6-1)2
3. Centauri (7-1)3
4. Highland (4-2)4
5. C.S Christian (5-0)5
6. Salida (4-1)6
7. Platte Valley (4-1)7
8. Yuma (2-1)8
9. Vanguard (4-0)9
10. Manual (1-1)10
Others: Lake County, Rye, Cedaredge, Bayfield, Florence, Brush, Pinnacle

Dropped out: None
Notes: No movement in Class 3A from the end of 2022 to the beginning of 2023. Class 3A is still very interesting with most teams playing a mixed schedule of either 4A or 2A teams.  I am hoping to start seeing a clear picture in Class 3A after this week.

Class 2A

 Last Year’s Results
1. Limon (2-0)1 (3 weeks)
2. Crowley County (7-0)2
3. Wray (2-3)3
4. Custer County (3-1)4
5. Evangelical Christian (5-0)5
6. Wiggins (4-2)NR
7. Merino (3-2)6
8. Simla (5-2)7
9. Byers (3-1)9
10. Holly (6-1)8
Others: Sanford, Haxtun, Plateau Valley, Vail Christian, Hoehne, Monte Vista, Front Range Christian, Burlington, Golden View Classical

Dropped out: Sanford (10)
Notes: We had some small changes in Class 2A with Wiggins moving into the top 10 after a great run at the NJC tournament.  Sanford falls out of the top 10 due to Wiggins having that great run.  Still a lot to figure out in Class 2A.

Class 1A

 Last Year’s Results
1. McClave (4-2)1 (2 weeks)
2. Denver Jewish Day (4-0)2
3. Belleview Christian (7-0)3
4. Granada (2-2)4
5. Genoa-Hugo (5-0)5
6. Flatirons Academy (6-1)7
7. Stratton (2-1)7
8. Briggsdale (3-0)8
9. Cheraw (5-1)9
10. Dove Creek (6-2)10
Others: Fleming, Ouray, Wiley, Sierra Grande, Pikes Peak Christian, Deer Trail

Dropped out: None
Notes:  No movement from the end of 2022 to the start of 2023.  Class 1A I believe will be a blast to watch which teams come out on top.  Only a handful of teams with more than 5 games so expect changes as we move deeper into the year.
