BASKETBALL: The Step Brothers Fab 15 (12-12-16)

screen-shot-2016-12-12-at-2-02-20-pm

There was a lot of movement in the ‘Step Brothers Fab 15’ this week.

Centennial remains on top after an impressive win over perennial power Westchester by a score of 69-61 in a non-league matchup.

Riverside Poly drops a few spots after losing big man, Ronald McQuay, in pre-game and then to a surging Notre Dame team in the semi-finals of the Riverside Kiwanis Tournament.

King raises six spots after winning the Kiwanis after a 12 year absence and defeating Notre Dame.

Notre Dame, behind long time coach Rob Robinson, climbed from ‘The Others’ and into the ‘Fab 15’.

Great Oak, REV and Kaiser all drop out of the top fifteen after a few tough loses this week, but Chaparral and La Sierra are gaining momentum and getting healthy heading into the holiday tournaments.

A lot can happen over the next three weeks as teams separate themselves before heading into league play.  The Step Brothers and ‘Inland_Sports’ will be out in full force, following and bringing you the very best coverage all season long!
