The top three teams continue to roll, forcing PBGametime to keep the top of the rankings intact.
Grandview Prep, Dwyer and Palm Beach Lakes have combined to record a 32-0 record this season. But Park Vista is not far behind with an 11-1 record. The Cobras beat Lake Worth last week, jumping one spot to No. 4. Meanwhile, the loss dropped the Trojans to No. 5.
Here’s the new Post Top 10 entering Week 6 of the season:
1. Grandview Prep (9-0): Pride just keep rolling behind star center Vionise Pierre-Louis.
2. Dwyer (11-0): Held past four opponents under 50 points.
3. Palm Beach Lakes (12-0): Capped off another good week with a victory over ranked Suncoast.
4. Park Vista (11-1): Only loss of the season is to Fort Lauderdale-St. Thomas Aquinas.
5. Lake Worth (7-2): Fell to Park Vista last week, dropping the Trojans one spot.
6. Boca Raton (7-4): Lost a close one to Park Vista by just one point last week.
7. Suncoast (8-4): Have already faced four of the Post’s top five teams.
8. Pahokee (7-2): Rebounded from shaky week with two wins.
9. Wellington (8-4): Wolverines fall in the rankings after two losses.
10. Oxbridge Academy (9-2): Have won seven of past eight games.
Games of the Week:
Due to finals and the holidays inching closer, there aren’t many high school girls basketball games this week. So, here is the one matchup that stood out to us.
No. 7 Suncoast (8-4) at Seminole Ridge (7-5), Monday at 7:30 p.m.: The Hawks are one of the teams that just missed the cut this week. Seminole Ridge is one impressive win away from earning a spot in the Top 10, and the Hawks have an opportunity to record a quality win against Suncoast on Monday. The Chargers have already lost four games this season, but they have also faced one of the area’s toughest schedules. Suncoast will be the favorite in this game, but Seminole Ridge has the talent with Kaitlin O’Hara to pull off the upset.
