It was one of the most unpredictable San Diego basketball seasons in recent memory. So, it’s no surprise that the preseason No. 1 team, Mission Bay, is not the No. 1 team in our final rankings.
That honor belongs to Torrey Pines, as the Falcons (25-7), claimed the Open Division title over Foothills Christian.
The Knights (24-6), who are still alive in the state playoffs, finish at No. 2, even though the computers favor them over the Falcons.
Mission Bay, which finished 18-13 but played the toughest nonleague schedule in San Diego, comes in at No. 3
Saint Augustine, which lost in the first round of the Open Division playoffs to Mission Bay, finishes at 4.
And Vista, which lost to to Foothills in the Open Division semifinals, rounds out the Top 5.
Cathedral Catholic (No. 6), Santa Fe Christian (No. 7), Poway (No. 8) and Carlsbad (No. 9) were the biggest surprises in the Top 10 after stellar seasons.
Francis Parker, the Division 1 runner up, rounds out the Top 10.
