Matt Goul always does a great job (in my eyes) on high school coverage for Cleveland.com. In an era where most media outlets are doing less and less coverage, I think they are doing about as much as ever considering the limited staff. Here is the pre-season top 25:

1. SVSM
2. St Edward
3. Mentor
4. Lutheran East
5. Green
6. Cleveland Heights
7. Lake Catholic
8. Lorain
9. Medina
10. Shaker
11. Brush
12. St Ignatius
13. Buchtel
14. Cleveland Central Catholic
15. Richmond Heights
16. Garfield Heights
17. Rhodes
18. VASJ
19. Hoban
20. Fairview
21. Holy Name
22. Benedictine
23. Revere
24. Brunswick
25. Warrensville Heights

While the Irish will be good, IMO Mentor should be ranked #1. They have a ton of talent coming back and that Floria (sp?) kid looks to be the best player in NEO.

Crazy to think about the amount of Talent in Cleveland and surrounding areas this year. Anyone who is a high school basketball fan needs to try and see as many of these teams as possible.

Maybe no. 6 Cleveland Heights didn't have everyone but I watched no. 5 Green annihilate them the other week. I'm not a Green supporter and I know they lost the Kaleb Martin kid off the regional final squad, but they don't look like they are gonna fall off any this year. That ranking is justified, imo.

Totally agree....4 starters return, great defense.

What is the deal with cleveland.com? They preview the weekend tournament at Heights then don't even post scores. In fact, there's not even a results page.
