Salesian moves up, DLS moves in to ESPN Fab 50

Salesian is on the rise again in the Powerade FAB 50 ESPN Rise boys basketball rankings, moving up seven spots to No. 33.  The Pride are now the third-highest ranked team from California in the national poll. Mater Dei, which plays De La Salle in Saturday’s CIF Division I state title game, is No. 2. Long Beach Poly is No. 17. Centennial-Corona, which lost to Mater Dei in the SoCal finals, is No. 37.

Archbishop Mitty moved into the rankings this week at No. 47 and De La Salle is also a new member of the rankings at No. 48. Castro Valley, which was No. 50 in last week’s rankings, dropped out. Lincoln-San Diego, which was No. 10 in last week’s rankings, also dropped out after it was upset by Summit-Fontana in the SoCal Division II finals.
