#1 National Boys Public School Basketball Team, Nathan Hale or Chino Hills?

Nathan Hale-Sierra Canyon Highlights

(1-2-17) This past weekend had a HUGE impact and will shake-up this week’s National rankings, both in Public and Private school rankings.

Seattle Nathan Hale upset everybody’s #1 Sierra Canyon 67-65 at the Les Schwab Invitational. With the win MaxPreps decided to jump Nathan Hale from #7 to #1 in their  Top 25 Rankings.

The MaxPreps poll also dropped eight schools after this week; including Chicago Public school power Curie, who dropped two games at the prestigious Pontiac (Ill) Holiday Tournament.

Making the biggest jump in both the MaxPreps and the Public School rankings is, McEachern (12-0) of Powder Springs, Ga. The young team won the National Division of the  Tournament of Champions Classic in the Atlanta area.

Sierra Canyon, despite the upset loss, remains as the #1 Private school in the US and dropped to #3 behind both Public Schools in the Top 25.

The biggest changes comes in the Public school rankings, Nathan Hale  leapfrogged over last week’s #1 Chino Hills, who still remains undefeated (16-0) and rides a 51-game winning streak.  This change should raise some ‘eyebrows’ and will be something ‘poll watchers’ will be keeping an eye on during the 2017 portion of the schedule.
