Official CIF-SS Boys' Division II-AA &  II-A Polls
For Week Of Jan. 27, 2003--(Jan. 27, 2003)

Ok, so we just haven't had the time to do our own SoCalHoops polls the past week and a half.  We issued a few last week, but we're the first to admit that unless we're going to give it a concerted effort to get it done in a timely fashion, it doesn't make sense to issue them late, and as a practical matter they do the real poll-makers (i.e., the CIF-SS SCIBCA members who compile the official polls) no good at all unless they're finished and in the can by late Sunday....Anything beyond that time-frame, and it's almost counter-productive for us to compile them simply because of the enormity of the task.  Perhaps they are fun to read, but they are so labor intensive to prepare and of so little real utility to anyone but the most die-hard of fans, that we're going to forego doing our own polls for yet another week.   Who knows,  maybe work (as in real work) which has prevented us from devoting the time needed to do these polls, will ease up, but we don't see that happening, at least not this week.   But in lieu of our own fun stuff, we're happy to pass along the official  polls, the ones prepared by SCIBCA.....Hey, it's the best we can do, and besides that, they're official and they were released just this afternoon. 

Division II-AA is virtually unchanged.  Literally.  While MLK and Claremont had been tied for 7th last week, this week, they occupy exactly the same spots but one is designated 7 and the other 8....Talk about a distinction without a difference. All the rest of the spots in the division are literally unchanged.

In Division II-A, the top four remain the same, including Mater Dei at No. 1 and Brea Olinda at No. 2, and we can't wait for the section finals if these two can make it without stumbling, and frankly we don't see that happening unless someone else gets really lucky....Fullerton, La Habra dn Redondo all shuffle spots in the middle of the bracket, while Dominguez and La Serna swap No. 8 and No. 9 for the week.  Otherwise not much is new in Division II-A.
