Arizona Republic High School Basketball Super 10 Through Feb. 9


Here are the top 10 men’s high school basketball teams in the Arizona Republic, regardless of conference:

High School Basketball Super 10

Until February 9, 2020

No. 1 Goodyear Millennium Tigers 20-5

They’ve won 10 straight and have yet to lose to a team from Arizona this season with the dynamic duo of Justus Jackson and DaRon Holmes leading this 5A powerhouse that seems to have no equal in Arizona.

No. 2 Mesa Skyline Coyotes 24-2

Led by Dayton Harris, they run away from everyone in 6A, but things should get tricky once they hit the bottom four.

#3 Avondale La Joya Community Fighting Lobos 21-3

They clinched the 6A Southwest Region Championship with their school-record 19th straight victory as lead point guard Nahshon Harper continues to electrify.

Tucson Catholic Lancers Salpointe No. 4 25-1

They got their revenge with a comeback victory Friday night against Tucson Catalina Foothills, letting 4A know they are the team to beat in the state tournament.

No. 5 Catalina Foothills Falcons 22-2

Could a third meeting against Salpointe be coming in the 4A final?

No. 6 Phoenix Desert Vista Thunder 23-3

Until they have to face Mesa Desert Ridge in the 6A tournament, these guys could be destined for huge things, behind Osasere Ighoadaro and a formidable group of guards.

No. 7 Phoenix St. Mary’s Knights 21-3

The 4A Championships seem to be rolling through Tucson unless this talented young team, led by junior guard Keiren Brown and second Garrison Phelps, has the last laugh.

No. 8 Glendale Ironwood Eagles 23-2

Maybe the best 3-point shooting team in Arizona will give teams double the problems behind the backcourt of Trent Hudgens and Dominic Gonzalez.

No. 9 Phoenix Sunnyslope Vikings 20-5

This 5A team, led by 6-foot-10 junior Carson Basham, hasn’t lost since falling in overtime to Ironwood on Jan. 17.

No. 10 Surprise Paradise Honors 20-5

With a 12-game winning streak, this top-3A team, led by sophomore guard Nate Pickens, gets a huge state tournament tune-up Tuesday at 22-2 Chandler Valley Christian.
