No. 1 Windsor (18-3) (Last Week No. 1)…Continues its march through the North Bay League with a three win week. All nine league wins have been by double figures. The overall winning streak is ten. They can basically put a wrap on the race with a home win over Cardinal Newman on Tuesday.
No. 2 Analy (15-6) (2)…They had a pretty uneventful week with just one game, which was a one sided win over Sonoma Valley. Nick Fujii scored 18 points, which included five 3’s. Jordan Armstrong also pulled down ten rebounds, which is his second highest of the season. The week was like the calm before the storm. Coming up is a big week.
No. 3 Cardinal Newman (15-6) (3)…A three win week. After struggling for a 54-49 win over Casa Grande they had two one sided wins including a 46-31 win at Montgomery in which Conor McCarthy scored 14, one of two games he scored in double figures.
No. 4 Santa Rosa (11-10) (8)…Overall a good week that started with an OT win over Montgomery, the first time they’ve beat Montgomery in over a decade. The week ended with a loss to Windsor. The good news is they got Windsor out of the way for the rest of the league race. Tommy LaVine just missed out on player of the week. His three at the buzzer got the Montgomery game into OT. He followed that up with a season equaling high of 19 points in a 48-45 win over Casa Grande.
No. 5 Petaluma (13-7) (7)…A one win week adds to the best season in years. The win was over El Molino in which they had a 21 point lead after one. Ryan Perez and Colin Stremlau combined for 25 points. Like Santa Rosa, looking good for a rare playoff berth.
No. 6 Piner (11-9) (NR)...Followed up a tough 40-39 loss to Healdsburg with a 57-35 win over El Molino. Jace Foster scored 21 as they stay right in the thick of the SCL race in what was supposed to be a rebuilding season.
No. 7 Lower Lake (11-8) (9)…Continues to play close games and win most of them. They did lose a 50-49 game to St. Bernard’s on Saturday. If they were going to lose one, that was the one to lose. It didn’t affect their lead in the NCL I race.
No. 8 Healdsburg (14-7) (NR)…A stressful week but a two win week. The first was 40-39 over Piner. The second was a tight 50-44 win over Elsie Allen. Landon Courtman missed by one rebound in the Piner game of having a two double-double week. He is averaging 15.1 points and 8.6 rebounds.
No. 9 Montgomery (11-9) (4)…The week didn’t start off so well with the losses to Santa Rosa and Cardinal Newman. It ended with their best game of the season with Evan Poulsen scoring 14 in a 67-45 win at Ukiah.
No. 10 Kelseyville (16-4) (NR)…A 2-0 week with the big win over Fort Bragg 56-53. Kyle Ellis scored a season high 23 and is averaging nearly 14 a game. He has scored in double figures in all but two games this season.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Gabe Knight (Windsor)
Three double-doubles including a 24 point game against Maria Carrillo that started the week. He ended it with a 14 point, ten rebound game in a 55-33 win over Santa Rosa that kept them in control of the NBL race.
