O.C. TOP 10
(records through Sunday)
1. Mater Dei (17-2, 50 poll points)
Monarchs moved to 4-0 in the Trinity League with wins over JSerra and Santa Margarita.
2T. Los Alamitos (16-3, 42)
2T. Santa Margarita (11-6, 42)
Eagles shot poorly but still hung in there with Mater Dei until the very end; maybe they’ll get a different result in a Feb. 3 rematch.
4. Orange Lutheran (15-3, 36)
Shooting 54 percent in an opposing team’s gym, as the Lancers did at Servite, was impressive.
5. Villa Park (14-4, 30)
6. Crean Lutheran (13-4, 17)
Saints, ranked No. 8 last week, have a challenging game Friday against Saddleback Valley Christian.
7. Yorba Linda (14-5, 16)
Mustangs, clearly the superior team in the North Hills League, likely to run the table in league games.
8. Foothill (13-5, 12)
Considering how many good players they lost to graduation, and Matt Avila’s season-ending knee injury, Knights remain a strong team.
9. Servite (12-7, 10)
Friars appear a bit disjointed at times, need to play more unified to get some wins in the challenging Trinity League.
10. Edison (15-4, 9)
Chargers probably can’t wait until rematch with Los Alamitos in their gym on Jan. 29.
Also receiving votes: JSerra (13-5, 8); Capistrano Valley Christian (15-4, 4).
