FAST BREAKDOWN: Despite all the high-profile games over MLK weekend, nearly every ranked squad took care of business over the second week of 2018. Previous No. 9 Las Lomas was the only Top 10 team to lose, falling to unranked St. Patrick-St. Vincent-Vallejo in a morning tip-off at the MLK Classic in Moraga on Jan. 15. We dropped the Knights just one slot behind Clayton Valley, since the two will be playing each other on Jan. 19.
