    James you seem to have a problem giving Analy their due. They should be ranked #1 in your rankings. They are 3-0 versus NBL teams, crushing Casa, Montgomery & Maria Carrillo (the team that beat Rancho) and if you look at those games they were all over at half! .. Analy is #1 in the SCL AND the NBL.
