The Boys basketball season ends  on Wednesday and the brackets for the state tournament will come out on Friday morning.


The seedings come out Friday and their is a lot of intrigue this year as there are many teams on the bubble.  I’m looking forward to see where teams will be when they come out on Friday morning.


Here is the final top 10 rankings for the regular season voted on by the Delaware Live crew


No. 1 St Elizabeth’s (19-1)(LW No. 1)  The Vikings suffered their first lost of the season to No. 6 Sanford but went 7-1 against teams ranked in the Delaware Live top 10 this season and deserves the top spot at season’s end..


No, 2 Dover (17-2)(LW No. 2) The Senators had a great season with their only in-state loss at No. 1 St Elizabeth’s by a point.  They play at Sussex Central on Wednesday night.


No.3 Middletown (15-4)(LW No. 3)   The Cavs had a solid season against top 10 teams with its only loss in the state  at home to No. 1 St Elizabeth’s 


No.4  Sallies (12-8)(LW No. 4)  Sallies furnished with a winning record with one of the states strongest schedules.  They went 5-1 at home and could be tough if they get a couple of home games in the tournament


No. 5 Sanford (15-4)(LW No. 6)  The Warriors are one of the hottest teams heading into the tournament including a big 58-51 win at No. 1 St Elizabeth’s.  They are 11-1 in last 12 games and face Tatnall on Wednesday night


No. 6 Wiliam Penn (16-4)(LW No. 5) The Colonials had a great season after a slow start.  Their three in-state losses to N0. 1 St Elizabeth’s, No. 3 Middletown and No. 4 Sallies were all on the road.  They were perfect at home this year.


No. 7 St Georges Tech (13-6)(LW No. 7) The Hawks finished the season strong winning 8 of their last nine and that was a heartbreaking one point lost to No. 6 William Penn.  They finish their season at Smyrna on Wednesday.


No. 8 Appoquinimink (12-7)(LW No. 9) The Jags tough schedule gave them some tough losses including overtime losses to No. 3 Middletown and No. 4 Sallies.  They travel to Cape Henlopen on Thursday..


No. 9)  Seaford  (17-2)(LW No. 10) Seaford had another great season winning the Henlopen South. They are at Newark Charter on Wednesday

No. 10 Howard (12-7)(LW No. 8)   Howard had a tough schedule that included a season ending game at Middletown on Wednesday.
