B.C. boys high school basketball rankings 01.11.22 edition: After a quiet holiday break, tip-off tempo picks up! Brentwood moves in B.C. Double-A No. 1!

LANGLEY — Games have been sparse from the start of the holiday break through the re-opening of schools around the province this week.

Nonetheless, their frequency will continue to pick up steam.

Quad-, Double- and Single-A tiers all check in with new top 10s with Triple-A set to join the party next week.

Note that in Quad-A boys rankings, locations were not provided for every upcoming game and thus none include a home-away designation.
