2019 NWBA Junior Division Power Rankings - December

12/18/2018, 9:00am CST

TIRR Memorial Hermann Jr. Hotwheels lead the way for Varsity and the Minnesota Rolling Rowdies for Prep.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – The Junior Division Ranking Committee has announced the 2019 December Rankings for Varsity and Prep levels of play in the Junior Division. The top seeds for each division are the TIRR Memorial Hermann Jr. Hotwheels for Varsity and the Minnesota Rolling Rowdies for Prep.

These are the first set of power rankings released for the Junior Division in 2019. The ranking for this division is always the most fluid -- and most exciting to keep track of -- as the first ranking of the year factors in more subjective assessments based on rostered personnel and last year’s performance. Teams noted with an asterisk (*) are already qualified for the 2019 NWBA National Tournament Series with a secured bid to one of the national tournaments.

 The top 16 ranked teams for Varsity will earn an invite to play in the National Junior Wheelchair Basketball Tournament (NJWBT). Teams ranked 17-32 will receive an invite to participate in the National Junior Invitational Tournament. If a team does not accept their bid for postseason play, invitations will be sent to the next team, in order of ranking, until both tournaments are filled.

Messaging from the Junior Division Ranking Committee:

Due to a dearth of game results, the first ranking of the year includes a more subjective assessment based on rostered personnel and last year’s performance. "
