ABV RANKINGS - 02-16-15

As per the norm, each season ABV does a final regular season rankings the week before it ends. The regionals are set to begin a week from today. A major change in 2A with Carterville finally getting that long-awaited SIRR signature victory. The top ones in 2A all have a shot at Peoria. The way it all shakes out, ABV could have three teams at Carver Arena in four weeks if the 1A Rockets can blaze their way North. It is the reason the games are played, to get to the postseason and see what happens. February turns to March and the games become much more memorable. Now if I can just remember where I put the remote. Happy President's Day!!!!
See you at the Gym!
