LGR Power rankings - week 2



Blessed to have seen another good week of basketball as there are always great match ups during the Thanksgiving week tournaments. It's harder than ever before to get a gauge on the top teams but we're going to keep this conversation going about OUR girls with our weekly updated power rankings. Several teams will be getting on the court for the first time this week and I know those young ladies and coaches have to be excited! Check out each classification rankings below.

Class 5A

5A combined is the toughest division from top to bottom and they have several teams that are still undefeated in Ponchatoula, Mt. Carmel, Southwood & Walker. This classification is wide open with several teams in the top 10-15 that could beat anyone in the state on any given night. When you add a Parkway who has yet to get on the court and a Captain Shreve who has been fighting despite not having a full team it's going to be fun to see these teams down the stretch.


Key Upcoming Games:

-Ponchatoula (5A #1) vs. Warren Easton (4A #3) / Dec 1st

-Mt. Carmel (5A #2) vs. Walker (5A #7) / Dec 4th

Class 4A


4A had a heavy weight match up last night as Karr traveled to Ellender with Ellender coming out on top in a close one. Other than that game there is not much movement in the 4A classification as Huntington holds onto the top spot with LaGrange not playing many games during the break. The surprise team to look out for that has now cracked the top 10 is Plaquimine. Here's a look ahead to upcoming key matchups this week.

Class 2A

LCA has not looked back after a loss early to South Beau and they are now 4-1 with big wins last week. Amite also got things started adding a big win at West Monroe. A lot will unfold this week as several of the top 10 teams either play each other or play other big name teams from another classification. 2A basketball is a fun style of basketball to watch!
