(2-18-18) -One big change this week at the top of the SSN National Public HS Boys Basketball Rankings, #1 Seattle Garfield lost to Seattle Prep (15-9) by a 58-55 score in the Class 3A SeaKing District quarterfinals, it was Brandon Roy’s first loss in two years as a high school head coach. With the loss they drop out of the Top 10.
That means there is a new #1 this week, that being South Bend Riley, who is picking up steam as the regular season winds down. The Wildcats continue to show why they are the top team in the Hoosier state.
Another game, another win for @UpsonLeeSports. 59 straight wins for the Knights. Travon Walker (@D1Figure_) led the Knights with 17 points and 14 rebounds as Upson Lee beats Northside (Columbus) 65-34 in round 1 of 4A playoffs pic.twitter.com/3k0Vg9mQQq
