*--* THE TIMES' RANKINGS BEN BOLCH'S FINAL REGULAR-SEASON BOYS' BASKETBALL RANKINGS AND COMMENTS: Rk Team (Record) Comment (Last week) 1 MATER DEI (26-2, SS-Div. II-A) Should play Westchester at the beach to decide top team. (1) 2 WESTCHESTER (24-3, City-Div. I) Coach Ed Azzam's halftime speech does Bob Knight proud. (2) 3 FAIRFAX (23-2, City-Div. I) It's a done deal: Lions vs. Westchester in City final. (3) 4 BISHOP MONT. (25-1, SS-Div. III-A) Knights deserve nothing less than to play in packed gym. (4) 5 FONTANA (24-2, SS-Div. I-AA) Loses psychological edge after being thumped by Eisenhower. (5) 6 SAN GORGONIO (25-2, SS-Div. II-AA) Spartans are a three-headed monster of destruction. (6) 7 SILVERADO (25-1, SS-Div. I-AA) You're the second-seeded team and you come from what league? (7) 8 CARSON (21-3, CS-Div. I) Ibekwe drops 40 on Banning, but did he save some for playoffs? (8) 9 LOYOLA (21-4, SS-Div. I-A) Cubs have everything aligned for second consecutive section title. (9) 10 ARTESIA (24-2, SS-Div. III-AA) Are those section title T-shirts ready yet? (10) 11 HAR.-WESTLAKE (21-6, SS-Div. III-A) Ocean View, Bishop Montgomery are potential stumbling blocks. (13) 12 OCEAN VIEW (25-3, SS-Div. III-A) Must sharpen resolve after struggling in league victories. (14) 13 VERBUM DEI (19-6, SS-Div. IV-A) Gipson could win section title--and get fired for unpopular stance. (15) 14 CANYON SPRINGS (22-4, SS-Div. I-A) Mission Viejo might present some problems in quarterfinals. (17) 15 MISSION VIEJO (23-3, SS-Div. I-A) Diablos want to win section title for ailing team manager.

I-A) Chargers unseeded after two losses in final week of regular season. (11) 18 ST. JOHN BOSCO (21-6, SS-Div. II-AA) Braves should have been seeded No. 2 instead of Villa Park. (19) 19 EISENHOWER (19-7, SS-Div. I-AA) Top-seeded Eagles' stock rising faster than a 747. (23) 20 PRICE (24-2, SS-Div. V-A) No more free Tae-Bo after loss at Billy Blanks Center. (16) 21 GLENDORA (22-3, SS-Div. I-A) Second-seeded Tartans get here with no returning starters. (20) 22 MAYFAIR (18-7, SS-Div. II-A) Potential semifinal game against Brea Olinda would be super.
