2. Los Alamitos (17-3, 43)

Sunset League-leading Griffins beat No. 3 Orange Lutheran in December, thus the ranking over Orange Lutheran.

3. Orange Lutheran (16-4, 40)

Joseph Riley’s clutch 3-pointer gave Lancers got their most-important win of the season with a 62-61 win over Santa Margarita.

4. Santa Margarita (13-7, 37)
