Basketball: The Latest Top 20 Rankings

As we brace ourselves for the St. John’s College U19 Invitational Tournament this week, it is Maritzburg College who have thrown down the gauntlet to the other teams as they clinch the number one spot for their second consecutive week.

 

BASKETBALL RANKINGS PIC copyThe SJC U19 Tournament feature most of the teams that appear in the SA Schools Top 20 and it is going to be interesting to see how the rankings match up with the eventual results that will come out of the tournament. The St John's Tournament will be a real test of the rankings formula to see if we have got it right.

So based on the rankings we are putting our money where our rankings are and we are tipping Maritzburg College, Jeppe and St John’s College to be right up there fighting for a spot in the finals with KES who could replicate their U16 counterparts and be there at the end, with Maritzburg College our choice to be the last team standing.

St Albans and the 2013 winners DHS are also going to be competitive and to see them finishing at the top will not come as a surprise. A rank outsider who may well cause several surprises in Alexandra who in their heyday had few equals and they will be a perfect platform to recapture some of their past glory.

We will be expecting the finalists to come from these seven teams but on the day it will certainly come down to the fitness levels and depth of the squads as they try to get through a jam packed schedule of matches.

Check out the rankings as they stand pre- St. John’s College Tournament and let’s see if the favourites can live up to their top billing or will a dark horse meet the challenge and take the title.
