### Top 20 High School Girls Basketball Rankings in Bay Area News Group as of January 23, 2024

Pinewood’s Jolyn Ding (12) attempts a pass against St. Mary’s Kori Rogers (1) and Cassidy Bartolotto (32) from Stockton during a girls basketball tournament featuring Sabrina Ionescu at De La Salle High School in Concord, California, on Saturday, January 20, 2024. The game ended with Pinewood losing 45-46. (Ray Chavez/Bay Area News Group)

Despite the top 10 teams collectively posting a remarkable 26-1 record, with Pinewood’s narrow 45-46 loss to the formidable St. Mary’s-Stockton being the sole defeat, there was no shift in the rankings.

However, a notable case further down the rankings involves Oakland Tech, which faced issues due to fielding an ineligible player. The team, previously ranked 14th, now faces scrutiny for its 4-16 record.

The inclusion of a team with such a poor record in the rankings raises questions. Yet, if Oakland Tech can secure victories in the Oakland Section and qualify for the playoffs, there is a chance for a resurgence towards the top ranks.
