Section 2 Basketball computer rankings UPDATE 12/24/17

Cam Tooley Shenendehowa girls varsity.

The Shenendehowa girls team is finding its stride after an early season loss to Saratoga and sit atop the Girls Class AA computer rankings through 12/23/17 games. Here’s the link to the current computer rankings.

Below are the links to the Boys rankings, Girls rankings and game projection link. The game projection link allows you to pick 1 team (boys or girls) and gives you a projected outcome of a game, with final score, versus every other team in the section based on the current information.

Girls rankings

Game projections

The rankings take each game result into account and they factor recent results a bit higher. However, they are very volatile at this point based on only a few early season results. They are also meant to project an outcome of a game if 2 teams played today. The rankings are only as good as the information I have in the database. If I don’t have all of a team’s scores the ranking may be slightly skewed for that team. Help us and report your scores to or tag us on twitter @section2hoop.

Class AA Boys

Still no real separation from the top teams. Shenendehowa, Saratoga and La Salle are currently the top 3 but 8 teams are within 6 points of each other.

Class AA Girls

Shenendehowa has looked like the defending Class AA champ, since its loss to Saratoga, and has a solid hold on the top girls team in Class AA. Shaker, Colonie and Saratoga are right behind them and continue to play great basketball.

Class A Boys

Mohonasen, Amsterdam and Lansingburgh are currently the top 3 teams. Teams like Queesnbury, Averill Park, Gloversville and Scotia look like contenders as well.

Class A Girls

Averill Park continues to play outstanding team basketball and are the prohibitive favorite to repeat in Class A. Holy Names, Amsterdam, Scotia, Gloversville, and Queesnbury are battling to figure out who is the 2nd best team in Class A.

Class B Boys

Mekeel Christian, Glens Falls, and Watervliet are currently the top 3. Hudson, Catskill and Schalmont are right below them. Schuylerville, Cobleskill and Bishop Gibbons are dark horses in this classification.

Class B Girls

Tamarac continues to be the top team with Glens Falls right behind them. Watervliet is playing great as well after starting the season slowly.

Class C Boys

Lake George is the team to beat right now. Following them are strong teams like Middleburgh, Granville, Hoosick Falls, Duanesburg, and Saratoga Catholic. Berne Knox, Stillwater, Maple Hill, Schoharie, and Mechanicville are bunched right below the top teams.

Class C Girls

Cambridge, Mechanicville,and Mekeel Christian are the top 3 right now. Greenville and Lake George are teams that the top teams don’t want to see in their bracket in February.

Argyle. Oppenheim-Ephratah/St Johnsville, and Whitehall are the current favorites. Fort Ann, Germantown, North Warren and Northville are in the next tier below the top 3.
