1000 Yard Guy's Prep Basketball Ratings - January 9th

Posted Monday, January 9, 2012, at 10:05 AM

Class B

1. South Sioux City....6-4

2 Beatrice............9-0

3. Scottsbluff........11-1

4. Omaha Gross.........9-2

5. Omaha Skutt.........7-2

6. Elkhorn.............7-2

7. Gering..............9-1

8. Gretna..............6-3

9. Lincoln Pius X......5-4

10 Norris...............4-5

*Considered: Sidney 7-3, York 6-3, McCook 7-5, Plattsmouth 6-4, Aurora 6-4, Nebraska City 6-3

Despite 2 losses last week, South Sioux City holds on to the top slot. Beatrice will have a chance to knock off the top rated Cardinals when they visit South Sioux this Saturday. Next week may bring another chance when the River Cities Conference Tournament is scheduled.

Ratings movement: Omaha Skutt and Elkhorn swap spots in the light of the Sky Hawks 61-59 victory over Elkhorn last Tuesday. Gering moves up from 10th to 7th, Gretna drops to 8th and Pius X to 9th to make room for Geringfs promotion. Norris moves in at number 10 despite the 4-5 record. All of the Titanfs losses are to rated squads excepting Plattsmouth, who is a ratings contender. Last Saturday Norris took number 2 Beatrice to overtime before falling, 69-63 in the Orangemanfs house.

Class C-1

1. .Boys Town.............8-0

2. .Minden................9-0

3. Wahoo................11-0

4. Norfolk Catholic......8-3

5. Milford...............9-0

6. Omaha Roncalli........6-3

7. Hastings St. Cecilia..6-3

8. Columbus Lakeview.....6-2

9. Kearney Catholic......6-2

T10 Adams Central.........9-2

T10 Gothenburg............9-1

*Considered: Lincoln Christian 7-4, Pierce 6-3, Wilber-Clatonia 9-1, Hershey 6-3, Wayne 9-2.

The top 3 teams hold their positions, but #2 Minden has a huge game Tuesday at C-2Œs top team, Ravenna.

Milford and Omaha Roncalli leap into the ratings big time and fill the number 5 and 6 slots respectively. Milford is unbeaten through 9 games and Roncalli mixes it up in the rugged River Cities conference and has only been beaten by Class Bfs 2nd rated Beatrice, 5th ranked Omaha Skutt (68-74), and C-1Œs top dog, Boys Town.

Norfolk Catholic slides up to the number 4 rung with big wins over Pierce and Wayne. Hastings St. Cecilia slides to number 7 after being spanked by Class B Gretna, who earlier dropped a 53-42 decision to C-2 Ravenna.

Columbus Lakeview leap frogs Kearney Catholic by virtue of a stronger schedule, Adams Central remains number 10, but 9-1 Gothenburg forges their way into a tie with the Patriots for that spot. Lincoln Christian drops out after a 52-46 loss to St. Cecilia but remains a very strong contender. The Crusaders can climb back in the ratings with good showings next week against Class B foes Seward and Lincoln Pius X.

Class C-2

1. Ravenna...............10-0

2. Sutton.................9-1

3. Ponca..................8-1

4. Lutheran High NE......11-1

5. Hartington C.C.........7-0

6. Stanton...............10-1

7. North Platte St. Pats..8-2

8. Fremont Bergan.........7-2

9. Creighton..............10-0

10 Johnson Co. Central.....6-0

*Considered: Elmwood-Murdock 8-3, David City Aquinas 4-4, Burwell 9-1, Shelton 9-1, Doniphan-Trumbull 4-4, Freeman 8-3, Southern Valley 9-3.

Top 5 teams remain the same, but Stanton takes a giant leap into the ratings and lands at the number 6 spot in C-2. The Mustangs only loss is to 7-4 Wisner-Pilger, but this past week they captured the Knight Invitational by besting then #6 Archbishop Bergan 52-40. Stanton then beat then #9 Oakland-Craig three days later, 50-48. North Platte St. Pats moves to 7th, Bergan drops to 8th and unbeaten Creighton moves in at number 9 with an unblemished 10-0 record. A weak schedule had previously prevented the Bulldogs from entering the ratings.

Doniphan-Trumbull (2 losses last week) and Oakland-Craig drop out, but Johnson County Central remains number 10 despite a 58-40 shellacking by C-1Œs Wilber-Clatonia (9-1).

It must be noted that Doniphan Trumbull (4-4) will return the Slough brothers this week. They had been ineligible up to this point because of a transfer to Adams Central last May that never materialized, but was in writing. They decided to transfer back to Doniphan-Trumbull and had to face the manditory 90 waiting period to be eligible to compete. Both were starters last season and heavy contributors to the Cardinalfs hoops program. With veteran coach Dave Oman at the helm, Doniphan-Trumbull may be a force to be reckoned with the remainder of the season.

Classes D-1 and D-2 will appear later today, along with top games of the week in all classes
