Rankings for the week of December 11 through December 17

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Hoops Tournament Holiday folks!

It’s that time of year again.  That’s right, as Valley basketball teams prepare for the second half of the season, Christmas and New Year’s torunaments loom both locally and afar.  But before we go our separate ways for the Christmas break, let’s see what these teams can do in the weeks leading up to the halfway point of the season!

Be sure to stick with us this basketball season as we attempt to cover all 16 teams in the Sequatchie Valley and beyond.  Below are our GSV Rankings for both Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball, so be sure to chime in and give us your take.

**These rankings are based off records and standings from Sunday December 11, 2016 and are to be representative of the week of December 11-17.**
