No recaps from last night's games, but enjoy my newest rankings!
1 – Wolfpack 2-0 – With depth, balance, size and speed, the Wolfpack have shown no weaknesses thus far. It’s still very early but as of now, the Pack are my number 1 team. Let’s see how long they can hold this ranking.
2 – Kings 2-1 – The Kings suffered a loss to the hands of the scrappy Warriors on a night where they missed their starting point guard, Niki Veronis. No excuses though, I’m dropping them out of my top spot because they had enough to get it done, but couldn’t.
3 – Danny’s Boys 2-1 – With their only loss coming to the Kings on opening day, I can’t quite put them above the Kings just yet, but it sure is a toss up. Strong wins against the Spartans and Ellas have not been much of a challenge, but it will get tougher.
4 – Sixers 1-1 – After a solid win against the Warriors to open the season, the Sixers put up a tough fight against the mighty Wolfpack but fell short buy just 3 points. The combination of Chris Vasiliou and Jim Armenakis will be tough to beat in the future.
5 – Revolution 2-1 – A great win against the Warriors last night reassured me that the Rev will be a contender once again. A late 15-0 run was a pure joy to watch because of the excellent teamwork.
6 – Warriors 1-2 – They might only have 1 win but boy was it a quality win. Knocking the previously 1st ranked Kings of the pedestal, the Warriors can use that win as momentum and confidence. Tough loss last night against the Rev, but it was a very close game.
7 – Spartans 1-2 – The Spartans may have the toughest schedule to start the season. After a good opening day win, they’ve been faced with the Kings and Danny’s Boys…not fun and it won’t get easier with games against the Sixers and Wolfpack looming. It will be another week or 2 before their schedule eases up a bit.
8 – Ellas 1-2 – With Tom Poulos on the roster, Team Ellas will never be out of a game and they showed that last night against Danny’s Boys. Ellas showed a lot of fight and scrapped until the very end. Managing to cut the lead in half, bringing DB’s starters back off the bench.
9 – PAS Giannina 0-2 – Kosta Pavlidis and company need to do more of one thing, have fun. They will be playing with their back against the wall against many teams this year but if some shots fall and the turnovers are kept under control, I can see them winning several games.
