Jan. 14, 2019 Allegheny Grille of Foxburg/D9Sports.com Boys’ Basketball Power Ratings

SHIPPENVILLE, Pa. – Elk County Catholic remains No. 1 in the Jan. 14, 2019, Allegheny Grille of Foxburg D9Sports.com District 9 Boys’ Basketball Power Ratings for the 2019 season.

The Crusaders are 12-0 on the year.

Rounding out the Top Five are Coudersport (9-1), North Clarion (11-0), Ridgway (10-2) and Johnsonburg (7-2).

In all, 16 teams fill out the Top 15 spots with Bradford and Austin tying for No. 15.

Power ratings are different from rankings in that a power rating the rating is based on a combination of current events and overall body of work, which means while previous performances and results are taken into consideration they are not the end all be all of how a team is performing in a particular week whereas a ranking is based on a team’s entire body of work. Because the rankings/power ratings are not used to determine playoff positions or seeings in District 9, we have decided to go to a power rating system to better reflect how a team is currently performing.

The ratings are voted on by the D9Sports.com staff which includes editor Chris Rossetti, Rich Rhoades, who is also the Sports Editor at the Jeffersonian Democrat and Leader-Vindicator, Andy Close, who is the Sports Editor at the Warren Times-Observer, Nate Steis, a contributing writer at D9Sports.com from Ridgway, Jake Mercer, an intern with D9Sports.com from Ridgway and Jared Bakaysa, a former intern and contributing writer at D9Sports.com from Curwensville.
