BOYS STATE RANKS BY DIVISION & REGION

Montclair Prep of Van Nuys and Stoneridge Prep of Tarzana were noticeably absent when the CIF Southern Section playoff pairings were released on Sunday. Montclair Prep is out for violating the undue influence rule. Stoneridge is out for using three ineligible players. Both are still in the state rankings for what they've done on the court, but that will eventually change as teams who are in playoffs start winning significant games.
