FAST BREAKDOWN

After two weeks of section playoffs, the only new team to the Top 10 was De La Salle. The Spartans jumped two spots to No. 10 after winning the North Coast Section Div. I title. Central Coast Section Open Division champions, Archbishop Mitty, and Sac-Joaquin Section Div. I runners-up, Capital Christian are the only Top 10 teams to be in the same spot they were two weeks ago. For Mitty, it’s No. 1 and for Capital Christian — which lost its section final to then No. 5 Sheldon 49-46 — it’s No. 7.

Bishop O’Dowd, which is now 17-0 against NorCal opponents this season, moves into the No. 2 spot. Because of CIF Open Division seedings (which don’t exactly reflect our rankings), we’ll have a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown of Mitty and the Dragons in an Open Div. semifinal on Saturday, March 7.
