Boys basketball scoring leaders, TNT rankings

No surprises among the scoring leaders as Bellarmine Prep’s junior tandem of Avery Bradley (25.7 points per game) and Abdul Gaddy (23.8 ppg) top the list.


Now, on to the rankings.


Auburn is still the No. 1 team in the area. I’ve got Lakes at No. 2 and Kentridge at No. 3 and both are playing well enough to be No. 1. But you’ll find no co-No. 1’s here.


Foss makes its first appearance in the area rankings. The Falcons’ 11-8 overall record doesn’t impress, but they’ve won seven of their last eight with the only loss a 51-49 defeat at Bellarmine Prep.


In the classification rankings, Ferris is tops in 4A, Rainier Beach maintains its stranglehold in 3A and Mark Morris still reigns over 2A. Bellevue Christian is the new leader in 1A ater Riverview lost for the first time this season. I’ve also got Vashon Island ranked for the first time this season. The Pirates are No. 5 in 1A.
