Pacific high school basketball ratings, post-MLK edition

Through games of Jan. 17, 2012:

1, (tie) American School In Japan (9-0) and Seoul American (15-6): Looks like Mustangs haven’t missed a beat in throttling Christian Academy Japan; Falcons more than held their own in their games at the Camp Humphreys Martin Luther King Tournament. ASIJ and Seoul American will likely play gnip-gnop with the top two spots.
3. Kubasaki, Okinawa (10-11): Pay no attention to the sub-.500 record; most of the losses came against adult competition.
4. Morrison Academy, Taiwan (14-1): Swept their four games in a weekend tournament at Taipei American School.
5. Faith Academy, Philippines (15-4). Won Monday in their first action since the first of the year.
6. Kadena, Okinawa (7-10): See Kubasaki.
7. Robert D. Edgren, Japan (8-1): Swept a weekend pair from a fairly solid Zama American team.
8. Matthew C. Perry, Japan (12-3): Cadavos and Cadavos prevail again.
9, Yokota, Japan (9-5): We’ll see how well they do now that Eldridge is back in the lineup.
10. Taejon Christian International, South Korea (9-3): Won’t be coming to Zama for Far East D-II.
Dropped out: Zama American.
Note: Expect some shuffling in the ratings the next couple of weeks as Guam's season ramps up.

1. American School In Japan (7-1): Handed Yokota its first loss in 18 games.
2. Yokota, Japan (17-1): Might we possibly see an all-Kanto Plain Far East D-I Tournament final on the Panthers’ home court?
3. Daegu High, South Korea (12-0): First Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Conference Division I regular-season title in school history..
4. Kadena, Okinawa (10-7): See Kubasaki and Kadena boys; four of seven losses came against adult teams.
5. Nile C. Kinnick, Japan (14-5): Brown continues to deliver for the Red Devils.
6. Faith Academy, Philippines (9-4): Two victories in two games since the start of the year. And Kelly Hardeman is back and healthy.
7. Notre Dame, Guam (season complete).
8. Seoul American (8-5): See Kadena; three of five losses to adult teams.
9. Simon Sanchez, Guam (season complete).
10. Seoul Foreign (8-2). Don’t be surprised to see the Crusaders make a deep run at an Asia-Pacific Activities Conference tournament title.
Dropped out: Yongsan International-Seoul and Seisen International
