Big Movers in Power Rankings

5th Grade
This division has been slim for a lot of 2018 but after the Boys of Summer 2 Classic we were able to pull together enough teams for a true Power Ranking for that division.  OKU by far is the stud in this division so keep an eye on Coach Guy Godwin and his crew as they progress up through the years.  The 313 Hot Boyz 2025 edition is a flat out highlight machine that is probably one of the most entertaining teams to watch that we've seen all year. 

6th Grade
The Cincinnati Royals (Black) squad is the big mover in this division as they dominated the Boys of Summer 2.  The 313 Hot Boyz still hold the #1 spot.  The BBA would love to see these two teams go head to head!

7th Grade
This has been one of the most competitive divisions throughout 2018.  We were impressed by the NKY Splash Elite's victory over a stout Cincinnati Royals (Red) team in the finals of BOS2.  The top six in this division are each championship quality teams.  

8th Grade
The big mover in this division is the Spirit Warriors out of Batavia, Ohio.  They pulled out a win at BOS2 in a really competitive division.   Southern Indiana Gold still holds the top spot.  They made quite an impression on us at Hoosier Hoopfest.  We would like to see them more in 2019 to see if they can hold onto #1.

9th Grade
For whatever reason, we've not seen a lot of teams in this division all year.  However, its clear that Kentucky Storm Elite is the best in this division.  They plowed through the Sunday brackets at BOS2 to take the gold.  

Varsity
The Southern Indiana Shock and Indy Saints are the big movers in this edition of the Power Rankings.  They have been battling all year long and their matchup in the championship game of BOS2 didn't disappoint.  The Shock move up 5 spots with their win.  Putting all of these 10 teams in one event would be worth a $50 ticket.  The level of ball in the Varsity Division has been amazing all year.
