The first set of official power-rankings for basketball were released today and the soccer rankings are slated to begin next Tuesday, Jan. 14. As usual, the rankings only reflect games or matches played in the regular season.

Some teams, such as Buena for example, started the day with a 14-2 record overall but nine of those victories came at their own preseason tournament and the Arizona Holiday Classic held in Casa Grande so the program’s No. 16 ranking in the 5A Conference was based on a 5-2 record. The rankings are updated daily from Tuesday through Friday so the rankings will change daily…
