Pacific high school basketball ratings, MLK edition
Published: January 17, 2011
1, Kubasaki, Okinawa, 25-7. Yep, they lost to Kadena. You should have seen how the Dragons held up against men in the Martin Luther King Tournament.
2, Seoul American, 21-7. Speaking of teams holding up well against men, the Falcons are a combined 7-5 against company- and post-level teams.
3, Hong Kong International, season complete.
4, Kadena, Okinawa, 15-12. Triple-S has become Quad-S now that Shawn Broughton has transferred in at guard.
5, Robert D. Edgren, Japan, 10-1. Finally dropped a game, but still the guidon bearer in Japan.
6, Faith Academy, Philippines, 11-4. It would be amazing if freshman star Micah Seaborn would remain in Manila until his senior year.
7, Christian Academy Japan, 10-4. Even with Miles Peterson gone, the Knights, while beatable, are still competitive.
7, Matthew C. Perry, 13-6. Yeah, I know -- Yokota beat the Samurai by 22 points in November. That was then. Perry's a much better team now.
9, Yokota, Japan, 12-11. A great team waiting to happen. Consistency will be key.
10, Osan American, South Korea, 9-2. Now that Jeff Tinsley's back in the lineup, the best may be yet to come.
1, Seoul American, 10-2. Suffered their first losses of the season, but against women’s teams at the Martin Luther King Tournament at Camp Humphreys.
2, Faith Academy, Philippines, 12-2. It’s confirmed – former Vanguards great Julie Stauffer will be back in the Philippines working with Faith to get ready for Far East.
3, Daegu American, South Korea, 11-6. Hit a bit of a rut, but Warriors still have potential to make a deep run at a second straight Division II title.
4, Hong Kong International, season complete.
5, Yokota, Japan, 11-4. Yes, Kadena clobbered Yokota at Hong Kong in November. That was then. Yokota is a much better team now.
6, Kadena, Okinawa, 5-12. Again, ignore the win-loss record; six losses came against women’s teams in the MLK.
7, American School In Japan, 4-1. Very quietly, the Mustangs are starting to assert themselves as a competitor for best Japan record.
8, Yongsan International-Seoul, 10-3. Though they stumbled vs. Seoul American, this may still be the best Guardians team in school history.
9, Osan American, 7-4. It’s starting to happen for the Cougars, who’ve won three of four since the break.
10, Robert D. Edgren, Japan, 6-4. When Jen Black steps up for the Eagles, the Eagles end up soaring as they did last weekend.
Think this is full of hooey? Can you do better than me? Shout it out! And remember, you’ve entered "THE" No-Hate Zone.
