Current top 5 boys teams
« on: January 20, 2018, 04:20:03 pm »
The previous top ten teams conversation went off in a wild direction so I want to try and bring it back to the topic at hand. Here is my rating for the top five boys!

Marked Tree @ 16-0
Mountain Pine @ 16-3
Parkers Chapel @ 16-3
Clarendon @ 14-2
Bearden @ 13-3

You could actually mix my #2,3,and 4 picks in any order. They are all three pretty close with marked Tree being the team to beat at this moment

Bearden is 13-3 I think... they beat Strong and Harmony Grove last week by around 4 points each.

I follow Pc and I  have a hard time ranking them top 5. Earles schedule has been much stronger than Pc.

Pc has 3 losses. All three were without their 69 center. And none have been by double digits. 2 of those losses were to 4a schools and the other was one day after losing their big man. One could make the argument they would be undefeated had it not been for the injury. Bearden lost one player from their team a year ago and they were a top 5 team then and they are again now. Both of these teams are very deserving of where they are ranked

Kinda seems like people dont think the 2a-7 east can contend for state. Both these teams are solid teams and have held their own! Also keep in mind that along with their 6 9 center they hav a guard averaging around 18 points per game. Dont count those boys out just yet.

7. Earle

Kinda hard to rank W.C.C. ahead of Earle, since Earle took 7 players (didnt even bring their big man, and sent another team to a tournament in memphis the same night) into W.C.C., and beat them by about 10. Earle is definitely top 5.

Tier 2:
Clarendon, Earle, Mountain Pine

Tier 3:
Jacksonville Lighthouse, White County

Tier 4:
Quitman, EPC

Tier 5:
Bearden, Parkers Chapel, Blevins, England

Earle only has 1 senior on the team. Murray will figure it out come tournament  time. Hes been playing since Dec. without his 6-6 wing who had injury to his non shooting hand. He will return before the district tournament. Earle will be ready and got a load of talent coming up

He only has 1 senior. We are very young.  Bohannon leaving for Baylor hurt us because there was no one in 2 A that could have guarded him in the post. But we all understand that was best for him. We will be alright but the next few years Earle will be loaded

This is full squad minus our forward Keon Smith, who is out with a broken wrist suffered during the Lendel Thomas Classic..talked to him tonight at the game and he told me himself that he could be ready around conference tournament time.

Mountain pine is very good. They are long and very athletic, in my opinion they just miss a true true shooter or else they would be a favorite to win it all. I only seen them play Foreman but Foreman is no slouch and should be able to make the state tournament.

Im a Lavaca fan, but I don't really think they belong in this conversation. A solid team, yes, but not a state title contender. They got routed by 32 points by 1A County Line (granted, CL is one of the top teams in 1A so far this season, but still, a 32 point loss to a smaller school), and have two losses to mediocre 2A and 3A teams (Eureka Springs and Paris).

I think they are good and I think they are well coached with Coach Reed, but I saw them in Regionals and State last year and I know exactly what they have back. I am not knocking them at all, I just see a lot better teams on this side of the state. I saw where CL had beat them pretty good, but I know they are very good also.
