Preseason rankings don’t guarantee you free wins, championships… Stuff like that. There is something it does provide for you though. A target on your back.

The SF Chronicle ranked Riordan #3 in the Bay Area at the start of the season.

The Crusaders would face Dublin HS in the NorCal Tip Off & despite them being ranked ahead of Riordan, Dublin came out with the first punch. It wasn’t a knockout, but it was just enough to build a lead to withstand an almost unreal run at the end by Riordan.

Tough loss but, these two could potentially meet up again in the Gridley Tournament held 12/6-12/8. Until then they have their own tourney to take care of first. We’ll see if they can build off this loss, & figure out what role each person plays.
