Columbia Basin & Clark top latest Joward Power Rankings

Sports by Joward logoMen's Basketball
A few weeks ago, the rankings started off with a look into the Championship histories on the women's side.

The East and South have dominated for well over a decade, but we've enjoyed considerably more parody with the men.

The only region who has "lacked" in relative terms, is the Northern Region. It's an ironic twist, given the amount of attention the northern teams have gotten in the last few years from these rankings and the coaches, but the North has only won two titles since the early 1990s: Peninsula in 2011 and Bellevue back in 1993.

Right now, the North is a little on the outside looking in, as Clark (West), SW Oregon (South) and Big Bend (East) seem on a collision course for one another by the season's end.

Oy, talk about an interesting week for Clackamas fans. First you get an unbelievable blowout of the defending champs, then you fall to Portland, who hasn't ever made it to the tournament.

Now, it looks like the team from across the river in Vancouver - that's Clark, people - might have an edge on the Cougars, but was it just a fluke?

We'll find out, as Clackamas will play SW Oregon (12-5), Chemeketa (10-6) and No. 6 Umpqua (10-5) before the next rankings are posted.
