Back to Business with LSWA State Rankings

After taking 3 weeks off and missing coverage on some of the top tournaments in the state along with quite a few upsets since our last post on Dec. 17th, the Louisiana Basketball Report is back. The past 3 weeks have been a tough time for me personally so I am glad some of you have been keeping me updated on the teams all throughout the state. I will be trying to update you all on tournaments winners and upset losses from the past 3 weeks throughout this week along with updates for this week. So, I figure the best way to start off the year will be the first set of rankings by the Louisiana Sportswriters Association(LSWA). This year they are doing a little different in that the Class B and C polls are combined. I don't know why or understand their logic but to me I think it is not good to do that. More Class B teams will be ranked over Class C teams or vice versa. We will see how it works as the year goes on. Below you will see the rankings for the week of January. 11-18.
