Inland Area Prep Basketball Top 10

1. Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda (23-1) — The Eagles have won 20 consecutive games, including recent victories over No. 5 Damian and league rival Upland. Sophomore guard Jordan McLaughlin (5-foot-11, 160 pounds) is averaging a team-high 17.9 points per game.
LAST RANKED: No. 1.
LAST GAME: def. Upland 70-69 in a Baseline League game on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
NEXT TIPOFF: at Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos TONIGHT.

2. Murrieta Valley (21-2) — The Nighthawks have won four straight since their last loss, Jan. 19 at Vista Murrieta. One guess who Coach Steve Tarabilda’s team plays on Tuesday. Reid Shackelford, Darius Butler and Co. should be ready for this rematch.
LAST RANKED: No. 2.
LAST GAME: def. Murrieta Mesa 60-39 in a Southwestern League on Thursday, Feb. 2.
NEXT TIPOFF: vs. Vista Murrieta on TUESDAY.

3. La Verne Lutheran (18-5) — The Trojans lost by five, 67-62, to state-ranked L.A. Westchester on Jan. 28, bounced back with back-to-back wins over a pair of middling SoCal academy schools, and now finish the regular season with their heads on the chopping block against two of the state’s very best.
LAST RANKED: No. 3.
LAST GAME: def. La Canada Renaissance Academy 54-45 in a non-league game on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

4. Rialto Eisenhower (15-6) — The Eagles finally allowed a CBL team to score more than 50, giving up 61 in an 18-point victory at Yucaipa last week. Senior G/F Marvelle Harris (6-foot-4, 185 pounds) is averaging a team-leading 24.7 points per game.
LAST RANKED: No. 4.
LAST GAME: def. Fontana Miller 79-49 in a Citrus Belt League game on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
NEXT TIPOFF: at Redlands East Valley TONIGHT.

5. La Verne Damien (21-2) — The Spartans were shown the door by No. 1 Etiwanda, losing 64-45 at The Shootout at Azusa Pacific University last weekend. Not the best time to get beat up, with playoff seeding less than 10 days away.
LAST RANKED: No. 5.
LAST GAME: def. West Covina South Hills 67-44 in a Sierra League game on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
NEXT TIPOFF: at Chino Hills TONIGHT.

NEXT TIPOFF: vs. Perris TONIGHT.

9. Riverside North (18-5) — The Huskies were held to just 40 points in losing by 11 at Riverside Poly on Jan. 30. If coach Mike Bartee’s bunch can’t win at their cross-town rival, how much can any one expect from this team when things get tough in the playoffs?
LAST RANKED: No. 8.
LAST GAME: def. Eastvale Roosevelt 64-49 in a Big VIII League game on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
NEXT TIPOFF: at Corona Santiago TONIGHT.

10. Ontario Colony (17-7) — The Titans hang around the Top 10 for another week despite losing a tough non-league game at home to Santa Maria Righetti, 77-71, on Jan. 28. Other than that, they won three of four last week.
LAST RANKED: No. 10.
LAST GAME: def. Ontario Chaffey 75-27 in a Mt. Baldy League game on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
