Jan. 27 Girls Basketball Power Rankings

Jan. 27 Girls Basketball Power Rankings | Crane Pirate News | Scoop.it
(1) Crane (C2: 17-1) – Nothing changed… Crane beat Class 3 No. 5 St. James in a game the really wasn’t too competitive, with the Lady Pirates winning 51-35. Crane then followed that up by turbo-clocking Blue Eye, the sixth time this season some has gotten “Craned”. Still No. 1 in Missouri and No. 66 nationally according to MaxPreps, Crane has Billings, Pierce City and Reeds Spring are on the schedule this week.
(2) Republic (C5: 14-1) – Republic had a rare week with no games thanks to “Ice Gate 2016” and the national panic it created. Unfortunately, that robbed us of Republic/Aurora and Republic vs. Camdenton/Branson matchups. No worries, the Lady Tigers are still on that six-game streak and holding steady at No. 2 in Missouri and No. 99 nationally according to MaxPreps. A date with perennial power Rock Bridge is set for Saturday and Republic will have no shortage of motivation considering the Lady Bruins handed Republic two of its four losses last year, including the season-ender in the Class 5 quarterfinals.
(4) Gainesville (C2: 17-0) – Gainesville joins the Walnut Grove boys as the only undefeated teams in the Ozarks. The Lady Bulldogs 45-32 win over Skyline last week is arguably their biggest of the decade. Gainesville then followed that up by doubling up state-ranked Hartville 54-27. I think we have the biggest threat to Crane’s four-peat… Oh, Crane and Gainesville play on Feb. 6 in SBU’s CMH Shootout.
