Official CIF-SS Boys' Division I-AA &  I-A Polls
For Week Of Jan. 27, 2003--(Jan. 27, 2003)

Ok, so we just haven't had the time to do our own SoCalHoops polls the past week and a half.  We issued a few last week, but we're the first to admit that unless we're going to give it a concerted effort to get it done in a timely fashion, it doesn't make sense to issue them late, and as a practical matter they do the real poll-makers (i.e., the CIF-SS SCIBCA members who compile the official polls) no good at all unless they're finished and in the can by late Sunday....Anything beyond that time-frame, and it's almost counter-productive for us to compile them simply because of the enormity of the task.  Perhaps they are fun to read, but they are so labor intensive to prepare and of so little real utility to anyone but the most die-hard of fans, that we're going to forego doing our own polls for yet another week.   Who knows,  maybe work (as in real work) which has prevented us from devoting the time needed to do these polls, will ease up, but we don't see that happening, at least not this week.   But in lieu of our own fun stuff, we're happy to pass along the official  polls, the ones prepared by SCIBCA.....Hey, it's the best we can do, and besides that, they're official and they were released just this afternoon. 

Most of the changes were simply a reshuffling of the top schools and for the most part, the top four teams basically remained unchanged in Division I-A with the exception of Silverado which snuck in at No. 3, moving Eisenhower to No. 4, while Santa Monica sneaks in to the top 10 and Valencia falls into the "others" category.   In Division I-A, No. 1 Loyola retains the top spot again for the third straight week, and the rest of the top four have only traded places.  Other than that, there was not a lot of movement with the exception of Glendora and Walnut moving into a tie for No. 5, while Hart drops three spots to No. 8.
