SBVC men lose No. 1 ranking

A pair of easy victories were not enough to keep the San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team in the No. 1 spot in the state poll. For the second time this season the Wolverines lost their No. 1 status without losing.

This time it is Ohlone (20-4), out of northern California, that has jumped ahead of the Wolverines (26-2), who have won 16 straight games with the last loss coming on Dec. 18 to Irvine Valley.

But Ohlone totaled 231 points, just one more than SBVC. Rounding out the top 10 are Citrus (188), San Francisco (186), San Jose City (167), Cosumnes River (167), Mt. SAC (165), Saddleback (160), Riverside (156) and Sequoias (156).

Chaffey (17-8), which lost in overtime to Rio Hondo on Friday, fell four spots to No. 17.

No doubt the Wolverines will be back in first next week, This poll has been inconsistent all season.

On the women’s side SBVC (22-5) fell from eighth to ninth despite winning both games last week in comfortable fashion.
