Observer-Reporter boys basketball rankings

Welcome back. Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year. With the prolonged football season - the area produced a PIAA finalist in South Fayette for the first time since 2001 - the normal attention given to basketball in the preseason wasn't possible. So, rather than slap some meaningless preseason rankings together, the thought here was wait until the holiday tournaments where over.

2. Shaler 8-0

Nice to see Coach Logan turning things around at Ringgold. A good man and a good coach.

Anyone else looking forward to the Stepoli brothers reuniting with friends and former coaches on the court and wearing different colors? That will be one of the best games in the WPIAL this year, if it happens of course.

it looks like going up the road is working out well for them( stepoli boys). g.c. looks very strong this year. i believe they won't be challenged until states if they keep playing like they are. i'm looking forward to seeing them at the r.m. tourney. also glad to see ringold looks strong this year, that section should be entertaining.
