DMV POWER RANKINGS WEEK 13

The IH

Prep Girls Hoops Maryland high school team rankings are brought to you courtesy of the IH (Intelligent Hoodlum) is the alter ego of James Nichols.  James has been involved with girls grassroots basketball for over 20 years as the director of Team Unique and The Real Basketball Report.  James has also been a contributor with Next Sport Phenom and it’s message board as the IH ranking DMV HS Basketball for the past 10 years. James has a “unique” style that should provide information and entertainment.  Rankings will be updated each week during the high school season.

BMac with another big loss to a WCAC foe drops them a spot to #2.   RBS finally getting some respect, teams that have avoided them need to come at them now for that top spot.  SJC benefits from it all rising to #7 eight spots up, while St. James takes a big hit falling from 3 to #12.  St. James top a big dip out of the top 10 after enjoying the #3 spot for five straight weeks.  Props to Poolesville and their big jump almost twenty spots after being unranked a couple of weeks ago landing at #45.  Playoffs are underway for every league so expect a lot of ebb and flows in the next couple of weeks.

Rant from the IH:

Since all of the IH’s loyal followers are eagerly waiting for him to post his funky fresh DMV top-60, here goes, with St. John’s College beating Bishop McNamara at the Bishop 64-60 in overtime.  The shaky shake up at the top.  In the stretch run of the season, certain teams are playing very well going into the league tournaments and playoffs.  SJC versus BMac review later on this evening, these rankings are the tease!
