D6SN Boys Basketball Rankings: Week Three


1. Hollidaysburg 3-2

The Golden Tigers had a solid 2-1 week with wins over Altoona and Junita, and a close loss to a good AAAA Hempfield team from the WPIAL.  Hollidaysburg was impressive, not just by beating Altoona, but by beating them by 23.  They head to District 3 to take on Susquehannock for a tournament this weekend. 

2. Johnstown 2-1 

The Trojans had a rough start to the year with a loss to Bishop Carroll in which they gave up 105 points, but they rebounded nicely with a pair of wins over Altoona and Penn Cambria.  It was a big win over Altoona, as the Trojans used a late push to take down their old rivals on the road. Johnstown has a big four game week, and it starts with Forest Hills Monday, and they could have a showdown with Hollidaysburg in their tournament Saturday night. 

3. Somerset 2-0

So we thought Somerset may have shown some rust from football, but they came away with a solid showing in the UPJ Mountain Cat tournament, and started off with wins over Conemaugh Township and Blairsville. The big test will be Monday, with a trip up 219 to take on Bishop Carroll.

District Six AA

1. Blairsville 3-2

A 3 point loss to Hollidaysburg and a 1 point loss to Somerset aren't bad losses, hard to punish them for that.  The Bobcats are a really nice team and they are about to go on a run here in conference play, they won't have too many more losses in the regular season this year. 

2. Penns Valley  3-0

The Rams are out to a good start. They have a big three game week highlighted by road games at Bellwood and Central. 

3. West Branch 2-0

The Warriors have raced out to a 2-0 start, and looked impressive beating Moshannon Valley last week. They have games at Williamsburg, Curwensville, before a home game against Mt. Union this week. 

4. Mt. Union  4-0

The Torjans are out to a hot 4-0 start, and they have all been in convincing fashion.  The big test this week will be the game at West Branch. If this team comes out this week 6-0, they could be in contention for the top spot in the rankings. 

5. Tyrone  4-0

Tyrone had a big one point win over a tough Tussey Mountain team to remain unbeaten.  It is definitely surprising to see Tyrone playing so well with what they lost last season. They have a big game with Huntingdon this week, and a trip to Clearfield as well. 

District 5 AA

1. Chestnut Ridge 3-0

The Lions are unbeaten, and relatively untested. They have road games at Everett and Forbes Road this week, and they should be 5-0 at the end of the week. 

2. Tussey Mountain 1-2

Another tough loss for the Titans as they dropped a one point decision to Tyrone.  Both defeats have come by one single point. They will bounce back. 

3. Berlin 1-0

The Mountaineers are 1-0 on the young season, They have three winnable games this week, starting with North Star Monday. 

District 6 A

1. Bishop Carroll 4-0

The Huskies have picked up right where they left off the past two few regular seasons. They have a big game Monday night against Somerset, and two games at Westmont and North Star.  

2. Bishop Guilfoyle 0-0

OK, now it's basketball season.  Congratulations Marauders on being the state champs in football. 

3. Portage 3-0

The Mustangs are out to a quick 3-0 start, can they keep it going? Road games with Meyersdale and Windber sandwich a home game against Harmony. 

4. Homer Center 1-1

The Wildcats have a home game with Purchase Line on Monday. 

5. Conemaugh Valley 2-0

The Jays are out to a nice 2-0 start, but they will be tested with three games this week. We will find out quickly if they are for real. 

District 5 A

1. Shanksville 1-0

The Vikings open the year with a convincing win over their rivals, Shade 68-53.  They will take on Turkeyfoot Valley on Friday. 

2. Southern Fulton 3-1

The Indians had a nice showing at the UPJ tournament, and dismantled our preseason favorite, Conemaugh Township.  

3. Shade 2-2

The Panthers are sitting 2-2 right now. They have one game this week, and it's against Turkeyfoot Valley, and they should move to 3-2 before Christmas.
