SoCalHoops HS Top 20
Division IV-A--
(Jan. 12, 2003)

We've held off until now putting up any polls, but cannot wait any longer.  With the start of league play this week for most of the Southern Section, and with only a month and a half before playoffs, it's time..... Here's the first of our weekly polls for the Southern Section.  We admit we've been having difficulty with team results and records, so if we're off on a couple of teams, just remember, this is for fun only....  Where a team's record was not found, they have gone unranked.  And that's not a good thing, so if you know a team's record which isn't shown, and which is preventing us from ranking them higher (or at all), let us know, because the newspapers sure aren't doing it all this season....
