Pre-playoffs all-class Top 25

It was tough to narrow this list down to 25 boys basketball teams statewide; there were so many schools that are deserving because of resume and talent level, and it’s always difficult to compare teams across classifications. But here it is … our last ranking before the postseason really gets rolling. (Note: this is confined to teams that are actually playing in the state tournament – sorry, Lassiter.)

    Just wondering why you ranked Centinneal above Milton, since Milton soundly beat them twice this season (by 38 points the first time and by 28 points the second time). Can you elaborate on your reasoning?
