With almost half of the top ten off last weekend, there wasn’t much room for movement throughout the top ten. Although numbers no. 4 and no. 5 — Hoopsters and Cincy Royals — was again a tough call, the top five has been pretty set for a while. It would’ve taken at least one major first place finish to crack the top three, which just didn’t happen.

In the second half of the rankings, we had to reward teams that continued playing throughout July, if they had nice performances. No. 8 through no. 10 all showed fight and success in Fort Wayne to end the season, which is better than not playing at all.
