New Girls BB State Top 20

Pinewood shoots down Marin Catholic and moves up to No. 1 in Northern California. No other ranked teams from last week's top 10 lost, though, so the Panthers were only able to move up one spot in the top 20. Another NorCal team on the move is Berkeley, which beat the No. 2 team in Nevada and is now back in the top 20.
