B.C. Boys Top 10 preseason basketball rankings: Burnaby South, St. Pat’s, Lambrick Park and Fernie tabbed as the teams to beat in 2021-22!

Ranking day has arrived for B.C. senior boys high school basketball.

Although the start of the season has been delayed by a couple of days, we’re right on time with preseason Top 10’s from all four of the province’s tiers.

As always, our thanks to everyone involved from pollsters to coaches, for making this day a special one each season.

And that’s especially true as we arrive on the doorstep of our 2021-22 re-start season.

We follow on Friday with all four tiers of B.C. senior girls Top 10 rankings.
