BHoops: Flintridge Prep beat Maranatha, Maranatha beat Pasadena Poly, Poly beat Flintridge Prep. What gives?

A Prep League fan brought up an interesting point on the blog last weekend regarding the Star-News rankings in boys basketball.

He wrote:

So Flintridge Prep beats Maranatha, Maranatha beats Poly, and then Poly beats Flintridge Prep. \ tie in the Star-News Top Ten poll?

As of last week, Flintridge Prep was No. 3, Pasadena Poly No. 4 and Maranatha No. 6 behind Keppel at No. 5.

Those rankings will play out come Wednesday when the new rankings are published, but the ones that count are the CIF-SS’, which determine playoff seeding, and as it turns out, neither play in the same division.

Flintridge Prep (17-5, 6-1 in Prep League) is No. 1 in Division 5AA, Pasadena Poly (19-2, 4-1 in Prep League) is No. 4 in Division 5A, and Maranatha is No. 2 in Division 4A.
