SBLive’s San Diego Section Top 10 Boys Basketball Rankings: Torrey Pines moves into top spot

St. Augustine continued its hot streak again this week with two top-10 wins, including a victory over Cathedral Catholic to knock the Dons from the top spot in our rankings and hand them their first loss of the season.

Cathedral Catholic’s loss resulted in Torrey Pines moving atop SBLive’s CIF San Diego Section Top 10 after their three dominant victories last week that have them sitting at 19-0.

Our CIFSDS boys basketball rankings are compiled by SBLive reporter Bodie DeSilva and are released every Monday throughout the spring 2021 season.
