San Diego has never had a repeat Open Division Champion. Could Boogie Ellis and the Mission Bay Buccaneers become the first?

Ellis, who went from being the best prospect in San Diego's 2019 class to one of the nation's elite guard prospects this past summer, is back for...

San Diego, this is your class of 2022. 

It's early, and there are a lot of players we haven't seen yet, but we're hoping to give readers a quick scan of the incoming freshman class and some of the players that should become household names sooner than later.

One of my favorite things to do during the preseason is to play prognosticator with the preseason rankings. 

But I love even more taking a deep dive into the county's hoop scene and identify teams that may not be on everyone's radar.

Let's face it: transfers are a staple of the high school sports landscape. No more is player movement apparent in high school basketball.

So, remember that early Preseason Top 10 we published a few weeks ago?

Well, it turned out to be just that - early. 

A lot has changed since then - well, one thing has changed actually, but it's reverberations are still being felt across San Diego's prep hoops landscape....

As we were researching the San Diego hoops landscape, one thing stood out rather prominently this year. 

Below the Top 10-15 teams in the city, there is a lot of parity, so much so that it was tough to narrow down the Top 25. 

So we expanded our initial preseason ranking...

The release of our very early Preseason Top 15 rankings has yielded some very predictable responses:

It comes with the territory. 

But some programs do have a valid point. While perh...
