The Monarchs could be one of the best teams in California is super sophomore Aaron Gordon takes a big step forward.
10.) Newark Memorial (North Coast Section)
Head coach Craig Ashmore goes back to work to rebuild the Dons following last season's state title game loss to Southern California superpower Westchester. Senior forwards Marcus Booker and Kendall Andrews are good places to start.
Head coach John Woolery has two nice pieces in guard Jamaal Davis and forward Namuji Madoshi, and Michael Crawley is a decent piece to the puzzle for the Panthers. It might not be enough to overcome Deer Valley in the Bay Valley League, however.
19.) Dublin (North Coast Section)
Saturday's season-opening win against No. 20 Vallejo was a nice start to the season, and while junior guard Jalan Rodgers can play, the rest of the Gaels might be too inexperienced to last long in the top 20.
