Coach Q i have no idea how it will shake out but im looking forward to it.Going to miss watching demarley play for you guys but interested in seeing how your group gels because I do believe you can be a factor.

M.Patterson i understand.If you notice in my previous comment I mentioned that Boys will be feeling some type of way.Its the pre-season poll for a reason.Duke is ranked number 1 the ncaa poll right now,guarentee you they wont be there a month or two from now.Things are constantly changing.I agree with your points.They can very easily have been on here to begin the year but I currently feel that all mentioned Brooklyn teams in the top 10 are better than them right now from what I have seen.With that being said,they play 3 of my top 7 teams the first two weeks of the season.if they just split those games at 2-2 they will find their way in my top 10.Other people bring up some good points as well as far as the teams being very equal.almost all up and down the top 10 and even the bubble teams have a shot to make some noise this year.Its very wide open and there will be alot of teams beating eachother up especially in Brooklyn.

I am really trying to figure out How Boys & Girls HS Is On The Bubble . I Thought When You Rank Preseason You Factor In The Return Players Additions And Their Summer And Previous Record , If All That Was Looked At I Can't See Boys & Girls HS Being On The Ball.

i agree, when they are on its SCARY, but they are not "ALWAYS" on, on those days they are equal to everyone else.  I think its bc of the youth and underclassman. no senior sense of urgency, but when they are FOCUSED, ... they get busy. and your last comment.... i dont know those coaches like that, so ill hold my comment to myself on that, LOL... i hear you tho. We shall see... in due time. FYI 7 of those teams listed are on my league and non league schedule this year :-)  ... not including our scrimmage at Jeff which would make 8.

i know...i witnessed one of those games.I have a different take on south shore than most,but their ceiling is higher than anyone else in the psal when they are playing at their best.However,they dont always reach that level for a variety of issues.I know the Bronx coaches will respect BC because of the uptown connection.Im telling you guys,watch out for Monroe.

Comment by Coach Q on November 6, 2017 at 10:48am

They weren't the only team up there either, was 2 more, LMAO  but its ok.  like i said i respect it, my team is still a work in progress. BC has a lot of kids that i mess with and Leaf is my dude. Nothing wrong with Friendly trash talking among friends, I want all the kids to succeed.  I usually dont comment much during the season, but maybe this year Ill take a different approach and speak from time to time.Will be an interesting year. Played South Shore twice in the past 3 weeks, one game we were even, one game they were #1 in the city lol, when focused they are my 1.

Preseason predictions are extremely difficult especially in HS sports. I don’t know what to expect from my own t but from what I’ve observed; John Jay & Transit has great JV seasons last year so that should translate. Law & Tech has the fire power and chemistry to thrive. Bannaker has won the division almost every year and last yr they had some Sophomores on the varsity roster that were standout JV freshmen. At the same time can this be McKinneys year? Returning only 1 productive player from last year. About a handful of Manhattan schools are usually top 10 contenders so I’m sure the top 10 in the A will look different in January. Good luck this season to all the schools.

Interested to see how the first few weeks shake out. Seems like it's wide open, so could be some great games and interesting results to shake things up.

Tip of the cap to A1-Jeff for getting the ball bouncing with the pre-season rankings here on NYCbasketball.

Would be great if MORE coaches and serious fans contributed info/comments on this site. If it's done in a mature manner it would be a positive way of high lighting the abilities of the players competing on all the HS teams. It's got too come fro some where. The newspapers (Daily News, NY Post) continue to ignore the 300 High Schools of the PSAL & IT'S THOUSANDS of student-athletes. Here's hoping the commentary greatly increases.
