This has been one of the most confusing seasons for getting information for the NBL and SCL post season tournaments. But we think we got it, almost.

The Sonoma County League used some common sense for their playoffs. Healdsburg and Analy are both playing in the first round, so they put them both on the same night (Thursday) for a doubleheader at Analy.

The SCL Championship Games will be played at SRJC on Saturday, Girls at 6:30…Boys at 8 pm.

The NBL Championship Games are still up in the air.

Now here are the final Boys Rankings of the 2016 season.

Congratulations to Windsor for the No. 1 ranking.

No. 1 Windsor (23-3) (Last Week No. 1)…Ends the regular season with a fifteen game winning streak and a perfect 14-0 in league. They survived their only close call with a 40-38 win at Montgomery. That game had an overtime avoided on the offensive rebound and return by Parker Canady at the buzzer. Four different players scored in double figures in a 3-0 week.

No. 2 Analy (19-7) (2)…The sixth SCL title in eight season might have been the most impressive considering how balanced the league was. They are one win away from reaching twenty wins for the seventh time in eight years. They will have two shots at that.

No. 3 Petaluma (17-8) (3)…Recovered nicely from the heartbreak to Analy which cost them the SCL championship with a two win week. They have more wins than any other season during the Max Prep era.

No.4 Piner (14-10) (4)…A one game week that was an impressive win over Sonoma Valley. With a young team they got a SCL Postseason Tournament home game and should get a home NCS first round game.

No. 5 Cardinal Newman (18-8) (7)…As long as it isn’t a week of Windsor and Ukiah they are fine. They finished the season with a three game winning streak, which got them second place in the NBL race and a home game for the first round of the NBL post season tournament. Also in the last game against Casa Grande, last season’s NBL player of the year Connor Rubattino scored a game 17 points in a 58-53 win. He has been out most of the season because of a football injury.

No. 6 Montgomery (15-10) (5)…Ended the regular season playing its best ball of the season. A 2-1 week and that one should count as a win. They played Windsor to the end before losing on a buzzer beater. Ended the week with a win over Santa Rosa in a do or die game in get into the NBL post season tournament.

No. 7 Cloverdale (21-4) (8)…An up and down league race is looking like it is going to end up. A two win week, including a one sided win over Lower Lake in a game for the league lead. They also reach the twenty win mark for the second straight season.

No. 8 Ukiah (13-13) (NR)…First time they made the rankings this season. It is also the first time since they were 2-2 that they are at .500. After a 2-1 start they lost four straight and ten of twelve to drop to 4-11. They started NBL play 0-3 and then defeated Cardinal Newman and that got them going. They won five straight and nine of eleven to end the regular season to get into the NBL post season tournament.

No. 9 St. Vincent (18-4) (NR)…An eight game winning streak puts them in a virtual tie for first place in the NCL II race.

No. 10 Anderson Valley (17-5) (NR)…Goes into the last weekend with a ten game winning streak and control of the NCL II race.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Lane Young (Montgomery)…He averaged 15 points a game in a 2-1 week as Montgomery got into the post season tournament. He scored 19 in the only loss, which was 40-38 to Windsor which started the week. He combined for 26 in wins over Casa Grande and Santa Rosa which were must wins to get in the NBL Post Season Tournament.

NORTH BAY LEAGUE
See the post season schedule above.

Have to give a shout out to Santa Rosa who went 8-6 in NBL play and just missed the post season tournament. It is the first time during the Max Preps era they finished over .500 in league play.

SONOMA COUNTY LEAGUE
See the post season schedule above.

NCL I
Cloverdale has clinched a tie for the league title. The win over Lower Lake gave them a one game lead with one to go. Their last league game is Tuesday when they host Fort Bragg. Meanwhile Lower Lake is hosting Clear Lake.

The league does have a post season tournament this season. The four teams have been decided and they are Cloverdale, Fort Bragg, Kelseyville and Lower Lake.cagers ad banner

NCL II
No post season tournament here and we still have a race. That is because St. Vincent De Paul handed Roseland University Prep its first league loss last week by a 60-46 score. Will Tarrant had a double-double with 16 points and ten rebounds. Liam Galten just missed a double-double with 15 points and eight rebounds and Justin Fahy also scored 15 for St. Vincent. The two teams combined for 54 points in the fourth quarter.

The two teams also split, each winning on the others home court and both have one league loss with one week to go. St. Vincent has a three game week, Roseland University Prep has two.

NCL III
Anderson Valley has clinched a tie for the league title with two games to go. The difference of the race is two wins over Mendocino by a combined nine points.

SMALL BRIDGE
Archbishop Hanna has wrapped up the league title. They try to finish 12-0 when they host St. Elizabeth on Monday. At 21-4, this is the third straight season they have reached the 20 win mark.
