SoCalHoops HS Top 20
Division V-AA--
(Jan. 12, 2003)

When you get down to the smaller divisions, it's really hard to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, largely because accurate records are hard to come by.  We've done our best to figure out who's who, and while we may not be basing this strictly on records or strength of schedule, the question will be whether we've predicted most accurately which teams will wind up atop the division come playoff time, and we think what follows below is a good take on the division this year.  Only time will tell, of course, but what follows is really only a matter of opinion, nothing more and nothing less.  If you know a record that isn't shown, let us know.  Where a team's record was not found or is known to be inaccurate, we haven't ranked the team where they might deserve to be, a fact we acknowledge.  And that's not a good thing, so if you know a team's record which isn't shown, or a correction that needs to be made, let us in on it. [Note: Buckley, ranked at No. 4 in our poll, was originally classified as a Division IV-A team based on enrollment of the entire school; based upon corrected figures, the school has been placed in Division V-AA ].
