Boys' basketball: Long Beach Poly is ranked No. 13 nationally
Long Beach Poly is ranked No. 13 in the preseason ESPN RISE boys' basketball national rankings.
But what's the point of the rankings when Finley Prep from Henderson, Nev., is ranked No. 1 but isn't really a high school team since it takes players from everywhere? Among the new players is Amir Garrett, who played last season at Lawndale Leuzinger.
Woodland Hills Taft is No. 22 and Santa Ana Mater Dei No. 43.
