Warriors continue to put distance between themselves and the rest of the league
CHARLOTTE: Week 7 Power Rankings
By Justin Polley | Charlotte League Coordinator
1) Warriors (7-0)
Last Week: 1
Warriors continue to show their dominance with a dominating win over Queen City Kings, 67 - 46. They have 1 more game to complete the perfect season before the Playoffs begin. Led by Ali Waheed Rana and Tim Hartman scoring the Warriors continue to show why they are the team to beat heading towards Playoff time. Having 4 of the top 7 scorers (#3 Ali Waheed Rana- 15.5pts, #4 Tim Hartman- 15pts, #5 Ozzie Sanchez- 12.2pts, & #7 Jarvis Jackson- 11.2pts) in the league on this team has proved to make many games for them easy work.
2) Knicks (4-3)
Last Week: 2
Led by Jerome Lynch and his 21.3 pts/gm and 5 stl/gm the Knicks are back above .500 for the season and hope to close out the season with a win to keep them above .500. Balance scoring and a full team really showed how good the Knicks can be when at full-strength, this past week. Deon Miller, Bakari Sellers, and Theo Hunter have added a lot of offensive power and rebounding over the last week, which really has shown how good this team can be when all playing together. Playoff time, this will be the team to watch.
3) Queen City Kings (2-5)
Last Week: 3
Holding tight at #3 this week is the Queen City Kings, who got another tough outing from Bruce Cash, who had 10 pts. and 5 rebs. vs. Warriors. I thought after watching them string together back to back wins that this team had it figured out in time for the Playoffs, but the loss last week still left many questions uncertain. They look to rebound next Tuesday vs. Knicks. Who they could see in the 1st Round of the Playoffs.
4) Heat (1-6)
Last Week: 4
The Heat have been stumbling of lately, even though they have been getting great scoring outputs from James Wyatt and Alex Walton in recent weeks. James Wyatt ranks second in the league in scoring but things as a whole haven't been clicking for this team since their lone win of the season back in Week 3. They will get another crack at the Warriors, who even though are listed as the best team in the league, the Heat have played some of their best basketball against during the season. The last week of the season should make for a good conclusion to the season and keep us rolling into the Playoffs.
