EBAL Basketball Power Rankings

These are the final preseason rankings as EBAL play begins Jan. 5. It figures to be a nasty season in both the Mountain and the Valley divisions as this may turn out to be one of the deepest EBAL seasons in some time.

Included in the girls’ rankings are how our local teams fared in the West Coast Jamboree.

BOYS

1. Dougherty Valley (12-0): Just keeps cruising, winning its own tournament by taking three games by a 210-120 combined margin. Scheduled to face a tough Granada game for its EBAL opener, but the game has been postponed because of COVID.

2. De La Salle (10-2): The Spartans had a great run in a tournament last week, beating Porterville, Bishop Manogue (Reno), and Mountain View (Orem, Utah) before falling 55-54 to Mater Dei in the finals.

3. Dublin (6-3): A week ago these rankings were bulletin-board material for the Gaels as they were “on the bubble.” No more as the team is finding their stride right in time for the league grind.
