Several blockbuster matchups scheduled for last week were either cancelled or postponed due to COVID protocols, bad news indeed. The good news is that a few adjustments to schedules allowed for an even bigger set of matchups this week. Below is the first #PBCHOOPS Power 5 Poll released 1/10/21. The ranking uses the MaxPreps computer rankings and strength of schedule to rank the teams. This all computer ranking is not perfect, having 2 teams ahead of teams they lost in head to head matchups, but does reward teams for playing tough schedules.
It's been about 2 weeks since the majority of teams in Palm Beach County have hit the hardwood due restrictions on public school teams and limited events. Games kicks off the New Year this week with several big time contest featuring #PBCHOOPS Top 5 teams. No changes however to the rankings over the holiday break due to the lack of competition. Below is the last #PBCHOOPS Top 5 released 12/20/20 and a preview of this weeks best games:
Micah Octave of Olympic Heights High School is this week's #PBCHOOPS Boys Player of the Week ended Sunday 12/20/20.
Octave, a 6' 4" senior shooting guard, averaged 28 points, 6.5 steals and 6.5 rebounds in two victories for Olympic Heights last week. Micah was recently selected to the #PBCHOOPS Fantastic 5 and Sun-Sentinel Fab 5 to start the season.
