MIAA EMASS D1 Top 20 - Updated

Steve Haladyna: Scored his 1000th on Friday Night's SJP win
MIAA EMASS D1 Top 20 - Updated 12/25/11
1) St John's Prep (3-0) *Update - Overcame a slow start to knock off a scrappy Andover squad.  Big test this week against New Mission in the BABC Holiday Classic.

2) Catholic Memorial (4-0) *Update - Another easy win for CM against Franklin.  The Knights play in the Garden City Holiday Classic later this week with Lexington, NN, and NS.

3) Central Catholic (3-0) - Rick Nault's team is right there at the top led by senior pit-bull guard Luis Puello.

4) East Boston (2-1) - Huge win at home last Tuesday over Charlestown for Malcolm Smith's squad.  Zach Gattereau, who had 24 against the Townies, looks to be on the verge of City League Stardom.

5) Charlestown (3-1) - Suffered a set-back on Tuesday night at Eastie, they'll bounce back and begin their ascent back up the mountain.

6) Newton North (2-0) - Year in and year out, Paul Connolly is a master of getting the most out of his team.  This year should be no different, and the Tigers have a nice combination of veteran and rookie talent.

7) Acton-Boxborough (3-0) *Update - Big win against BC vaults the undefeated Colonials into the Top 10.

8) New Bedford (2-0) - Needed OT to get a win against St Bernard's out of Central Mass.  The Whalers have one of the state's top duos in Jonathan Fortes and Steve Wynn.

9) Brookline (2-1) - B-Line looks ready to make a run behind sophomore floor general EJ Rogers and an athletic supporting cast.

10) Mansfield (2-0) - Big win for Mike Vaughn's squad over Jake Layman and King Philip also those in the "know" weren't "stunned."

11) BC High (2-2) *Update - Loss to A-B drops BCH out of the Top 10 for now.
12) Lynn English (2-1) - Keandre Stanton is one the top players in the state; however, red flags were raised in Lynn after the Bulldogs dropped one to Beverly.

13) Brockton (2-1) - If the Boxers can get everyone on the same page, they certainly have the talent to make a run at the Cup. 

14) Needham (2-1) - Well-rounded ball-club has one of the best coaching staffs around with Head Coach Paul Liner and a top-notch AC in former Wellesley HS Head Coach Mike Reidy.

15) Boston Latin (4-1) *Update - Statement win against Westford vaults Latin into the Top 20.  Only loss to A-B.

16) Weymouth (2-0) - Senior lead guard Damien Lugay busted out for 36 in the Wildcats' opening night OT win over Natick.

17) Lawrence (2-0) - The Lancers are off to a nice start.  Look out for sophomore forward Roberto Speing.

18) Madison Park (3-0) - Dennis Wilson's ball-club is out of the gates 2-0.  We'll see what they got on the other side of the New Year's Ball.

19) Andover (2-0) - The 1-2 front-court punch of junior Sam Dowden and senior James Costello will lead Dave Fazio's club to a lot of wins.

20) Westford Academy (4-1) *Update - Set-back to Boston Latin drops the Grey Ghosts five spots.
