How does st Francis keep getting rewarded for losing ? 9 losses , losers of 6 of their last 8. Their last quality win was over a month ago . It this was a real ranking like a college one they wouldn’t be top 20 in wny let alone top 10.

I don't see it as I'm rewarding them, they dropped two spots in my rankings from last week. I also think comparing HS & college rankings doesn't really work - I understand what you're saying, I just think they are categorically different.

I've already dropped them below Health and now Will East, both teams they defeated this season. I still have them ahead of McKinley, because they beat the Macks on Elmwood Avenue this season.

When you analyze the streak you're pointing out, losers of 6 of their last 8, there's only one loss I see that could be considered a bad one and that's St. Mary's...who has been playing outstanding recently. They lost in Syracuse at Bishop Grimes on Day Two of their tournament in a back-to-back with less than 24 hours turnaround. Two nights later to St. Joe's who's been ranked ahead of Frannies for weeks. Lost to Timon (not a great loss) and then to Canisius. Two wins were then followed by the St. Mary's loss which I dropped them down for, then St. Joe's again and Aquinas (who beat Canisius twice this year).

There has to be some sort of context associated with the rankings in my opinion, otherwise just go by standings.

But my question back to you is, who deserves the spot over them and why? St. Francis has three wins over ranked large schools and four wins over ranked small schools, along with win over McQuaid (beat St. Joe's) and Syracuse CBA. There isn't another large school in WNY outside of the Top 10 that's even close to that resume.

Against Top 10 Large Schools:

Falls 0-3
Sweet Home 0-4
Lancaster 0-7

CC, Do you know what division Park School plays in the playoffs. Thanks

Park plays the IAC teams in the postseason, that's it
