New Hampshire Boys Team Rankings

RankPreseasonJan 1 (Latest Rankings)
1MilfordMilford (4-0)They won the Cheshire Tire Holiday Festival. Seniors Jamie Holder and Mike O'Loughlin are two of the best talents in NH. This team is the best team in the State and should easily capture Division 2 State Championship.
2Bishop Guertin

Bishop Guertin (3-1)

BG hasn't played its best basketball yet, but they do have a win over Manchester Central. They have much dept in seniors Connor Green, Sean McClung, and juniors Logan Kesty and Brad Holler.

3Manchester Memorial

Manchester Central (4-1)

They lost to BG at BG in a game they could of and should of won. In the Queen City Christmas Tournament, they beat Manchester Memorial by a point and then won the tournament. John Wickey, who was the MVP of the tournament, is playing excellent basketball and has great support from junior Gabe LaCount.
4Manchester CentralManchester Memorial (3-1)The addition of David Madol makes this team an instint contender. Expect Central to be a huge factor come tournament time.
5MerrimackMerrimack (4-1)They made it to the finals of the Queen City Basketball Tournament without Dimitri Floras who was away for grandmother's funeral. Junior Tyler Gendron and Freshman Eric Gendron have been superb. We love Floras and thus Merrimack could sneak up and win division 1.
6TrinityTrinity (4-1)Lost to Manchester Memorial in the Queen City Christmas Tournament. However, Trinity has great size, and could create problems.
7PelhamPelham (3-1)Pelham took their 3-0 record to the Lowell Holiday Tournament where they lost 73-45 to Acton Boxborough in semi-final action. Pelham can win because Steve Spirou plays as hard as anybody in the State.
8DoverSouhegan (4-1)Souhegan and Devin Gilligan gave Milford all they could handle in the Chesire Tire Holiday Tournament. Gilligan can score the basketball and thus Souhegan may have the only chance to knock off Milford.
9BedfordSalem (3-2)2-0 early before heading into a loaded field in the Greater Lawrence Christmas Tournament where they were 1-2.
10Nashua NorthNashua North (2-2)Talented juniors Javon Williams and Ryan Gauthier should be able to make this team a contender.
