Early February is just past the midway point in the season. What a season it has been, with teams dealing with pandemic. It’s not too late to take a mid-season look at how things are going. Here’s an update on the Centennial League:

Best Team:

Whatever claim Washburn Rural had on the top team in the league was answered by Topeka West Tuesday night. The most recent rankings had West #6 in 5A, Rural at #8 in 6A. But the argument was handled head-to-head when the Chargers whipped the Junior Blues 63-46. West suffered a couple of head-scratching defeats in January, but if Elijah BrooksElijahBrooks6'2" | CGTopeka West | 2022StateKS comes back to full strength, this will be a loaded and experienced bunch.

Stars:

There are too many ‘stars’ in the league to describe in detail. Joe BerryJoeBerry6'4" | CGWashburn Rural | 2021StateKS is a returning third-teamer in 6A. There’s Brooks, Charles SnyderCharlesSnyder6'5" | PFEmporia | 2021StateKS and Corey PowellCoreyPowell6'4" | PFHighland Park | 2021StateKS, each third-team in 5A. Don’t forget Owen BraxmeyerOwenBraxmeyer6'1" | CGManhattan | 2021StateKS of Manhattan. But for this discussion, let’s go with two co-Players of the Year - Tre AlexanderTreAlexander6'3" | CGTopeka West | 2021StateKS and Marque Wilkerson, both of Topeka West.
