1. Carson Senators (13-5, 8-0)
Now on a six-game winning streak, Carson hasn’t lost in a month. The Senators own a comfy 2.5 game lead over Bishop Manogue for first place in the Sierra League. It’s Carson’s regional title to lose right now.
Last Week: 1
2. Reno Huskies (11-5, 7-1)
Reno validated last week’s jump from No. 4 with a win over North Valleys and a big 61-56 home win over Spanish Springs on Friday night. The Huskies’ have won for straight since falling 43-31 at Carson on Dec. 30.
Last Week: 2
3. Bishop Manogue Miners (8-6, 5-2)
It was a rough go two weeks ago for the Miners, who fell to Reno and McQueen. Well, they bounced back last week with a nice 50-49 home win over Galena last Tuesday and handed Damonte Ranch on Friday.
Last Week: 4
4. McQueen Lancers (14-7, 6-2)
The Lancers didn’t have any troubles at home against Reed or at North Valleys last week. They’ve played the most games, but McQueen has the most total wins of anyone in the DI North. McQueen goes to Spanish Springs on Tuesday night in a contest with big implications.
Last Week: 5
5. Spanish Spring Cougars (9-7, 5-3)
The Cougars have the talent and size to play with anyone in the region but lacking experienced seniors, they’ve struggled to close games out. Friday’s loss at Reno was the latest example. Spanish Springs had legitimate league title aspirations at the start of the season but goals would likely need to change with a home loss on Tuesday against McQueen.
Last Week: 3
