Pikes Peak basketball rankings (through games of Feb. 11)

We stack up the best area basketball teams by classification.
Vanguard hasnâ€™t lost since Dec. 3 and the Coursers are picking up steam, having won their last five games by an average of 30 points â€“ and that stretch includes wins over Peyton, Calhan and CSS. But the showdown is coming on Friday, when the Coursers play at ECA in the regular-season finale. Vanguard won round 1, but was a non-league game. This one, depending on ECAâ€™s outcome against Peyton on Monday, could put the 2A Black Forest League into a tie between the schools.
PICTURED IS ECA'S LILLY McINTIRE, SHOOTING AGAINST VANGUARD'S PERI ROSE SYKES (22) AND ANGELEENA McNULTY (23)
