East Bay boys basketball poll — 1/31

We have a new No. 1 for the fourth straight week as Castro Valley surges on the strength of its win over O’Dowd. The Trojans now have beaten two of the current top four teams (O’Dowd, Oakland), which was enough to bump them up. Tough to see De La Salle drop to No. 2 after having a great week, but it’s more about Castro Valley moving up than the Spartans deserving to move down.

East Bay Boys Basketball poll — 1/24

Sorry for getting this posted later than normal. It was a complicated week for the voters, with a tough decision to make at No. 1 that led to quite a spilt in the vote as De La Salle pulls into the No. 1 spot by a point over O’Dowd. Really, what sets DLS apart is the win over Sheldon that came just days after Sheldon beat a Sacramento team that O’Dowd lost to. Of course, we were sent searching for a new No. 1 after Salesian first lost to St. Joseph Notre Dame and then had to forfeit its first 16 wins. That led to a tough call to decide what to do with Salesian, which ultimately dropped to No. 10 despite its official 2-17 record.
