1. Bishop Manogue Miners (10-1, 8-0)
Last week was Manogue’s first in the No. 1 spot and the Miners validated the move with beat downs over Douglas and Damonte Ranch. The Mustangs are the Miners’ biggest threat to the Sierra League title and Manogue handled them, 74-39. On the road. May as well give the Miners the No. 1 seed now.
Last Week: 1
2. Reno Huskies (17-2, 7-1)
After falling at Manogue a week and a half ago, Reno looked like itself last week, barely breaking a sweat in wins over North Valleys and Spanish Springs
Last Week: 2
3. McQueen Lancers (14-3, 7-1)
It wasn’t easy, but the Lancers survived a tough week to remain in a tie for first place with Reno. McQueen edged Reed in overtime last Tuesday and edged North Valleys on Friday, 39-35.
Last Week: 3
4. Damonte Ranch Mustangs (11-4, 5-3)
If Damonte had any hopes of catching Manogue and stealing the Sierra League title, those hopes likely fizzled with Friday’s lopsided home loss to the Miners. Still, the Mustangs are the second best team in the league.
Last Week: 4
5. Reed Raiders (7-4, 5-3)
The Raiders’ youth is ridiculous. Their four best players are two sophomores and two freshmen. They let one slip at McQueen last Tuesday but can start making up for the loss tonight at North Valleys.
