Power rankings bring good news for DHS basketball teams

From page B8 | January 30, 2013 |

If the season ended today, both Davis High basketball teams would be in the Sac-Joaquin Section postseason.

When the CIF released the region’s Division I power rankings Tuesday, the Lady Blue Devils — with a 19-4 record — found themselves ranked eighth and in the playoffs, regardless of the results of the next four games.

The DHS boys come into Wednesday’s game at Grant ranked 12th, but with some work to do.

Sixteen schools will make the playoffs, generally based on the final rankings.

Should Davis’ girls hold rank, they’ll probably earn a first-round home game. If the local boys — sitting at 14-8 — get two wins in their final four outings, they’re in, too. However, unless the Devil boys move up a few notches, they will start the postseason on the road.

The Davis girls are tied at the top of the Delta Valley Conference with Monterey Trail (ranked a tick ahead of the Devils at No. 7), and the boys (14-8, 4-2) are in a four-way tie for first with Franklin (ranked No. 9), Laguna Creek and Grant.

In both girls and boys divisions, Laguna Creek, Grant and Elk Grove have settled into D-II, thanks to enrollment size.

In addition to the top 16 teams on the power list, Sac-Joaquin Section media relations director Will DeBoard tells The Enterprise that “any league champs and any teams with 15 wins who are out of the top 16” will be involved in the postseason.

The solution to accommodate the potentially full house? Outbracket games.

On the girls’ side, Bethel (No. 20), Merced (18) and Enochs (17) all have shots at winning their league crowns. Merced (15-7) and Enochs (14-5) look to be shoe-ins based on wins in relation to their remaining foes.

None of the boys teams chasing the top 16 — Bear Creek, Woodcreek, Tokay, Edison, Modesto or Armijo — are in position to win conference titles or crack the 15-win ceiling.

While both local teams need to watch their backs, the best way to ensure playoff berths would be to continue to win.

Another power ranking will be released Monday, with brackets announced Feb. 13.
