Those Badgers are always making things interesting. Tucson High blew a lead over Mountain View last week and eventually fell 44-36. This week could be even tougher for the 3-2 Badgers, who must travel to Cienega to take on our No. 2-ranked team.
Tucson High is the only team in our power poll with two losses, but consider their competition. They've already played Mountain View, Salpointe Catholic and a pair of large Phoenix-area schools, Mountain Ridge and Desert Ridge.
With Tucson High at No. 7, two teams are on the outside looking in: Pusch Ridge (3-1) just missed out on the rankings this week, only because its opponents this year have been ... underwhelming. Desert View, while one of only two undefeated teams left in Southern Arizona, suffers from the same problem. The Jaguars' toughest game came against a Maricopa team that is 3-2 this season.
