10. St. Bernard's

Record: 9-4, 2-2

Points Per Game: 60.4 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 54.5 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Garrett Stephenson - 15.6 PPG

 

The Bernardians recent five-game winning streak has them in the Power Pack for the first time. The biggest win of that run was a huge 79-67 upset over (1)St. Peter-Marian. Their offense has been clicking recently, averaging 66 points per game over their five-game win streak.

9. Clinton

Record: 9-2, 5-0

Points Per Game: 73.2 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 52.1 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Brendan Kittredge - 17.4 PPG

Clinton has three players that score in double figures, which has led them to their 9-2 record. A balanced attack offensively and a strong defensive effort have the Gaels in the Power Pack. They will need to run the table if they want to stay in however, as they do not face strong competition for the rest of the season.

8. Quaboag

Record: 11-0, 11-0

Points Per Game: 58.6 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 40.1 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Jake Wisniewski - 21.7 PPG

The Cougars have been one of the hottest teams in Central Massachusetts. Their undefeated record can be directly attributed to their top ranked scoring defense, allowing just 40.1 points per game.

They do not face an extremely tough opponent until February 9, when they host (1)St. Peter-Marian.

7. Worcester South

Record: 8-3, 2-1

Points Per Game: 57.3 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 56.1 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Kasheen Cunningham - 21.0 PPG

South has won eight of nine games following back-to-back losses to start the season. The play of Kasheen Cunningham has led the Colonels in their recent winning ways.

But, South faces a brutal end of season schedule that includes likely the hardest three game stretch any team will face. In the next week the Colonels will host (1)St. Peter-Marian before traveling to (2)St. John's and (4)Wachusett. This three game stretch can make-or-break the season for South.

6. Leominster

Record: 94-, 5-2

Points Per Game: 58.2 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 50.5 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Jake Allain - 12.5 PPG

The Blue Devils stubbed their collective toes in a recent three game stretch that saw them falling to (4) Wachusett and (3)Fitchburg. They get a chance to avenge the loss to Wachusett as they host the Mountaineers on February 4.

5. Sutton

Record: 11-0, 6-0

Points Per Game: 54.5 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 42.4 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Gordy Smythe & Richard Harrington - 12.4 PPG

 

The Sammies have not faced the hardest schedule in Central Massachusetts, but they have blown through their competition by boasting the third-best scoring defense. They get a majority of their scoring from Gordy Smythe and Richard Harrington who co-lead the team with 12.4 points per game.

4. Wachusett

Record: 8-2, 4-1

Points Per Game: 57.9 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 51.9 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Tyler Dion - 18.2 PPG

Tyler Dion and Justin Bowker continue to be the two-headed scoring monster that has led the Mountaineers into a top-three ranking. Bowker recently proved he is a force to be reckoned with, dominating Shrewsbury to the tune of a 14-point, 15-rebound performance. 

The Mountaineers still face a tough schedule with four games against Power Pack teams remaining. This includes a brutal three-game stretch when they travel to (4)Fitchburg, host (7)Worcester South and go back on the road again to face (6)Leominster.

3. Fitchburg

Record: 11-2, 5-1

Points Per Game: 61.7 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 50.5 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Jose Hernandez - 12.5 PPG

The Red Raiders move up a spot with their recent hot streak of eight wins in nine games. They took down the then third-ranked Blue Devils of Leominster. They got a game-high 21 points from their leading scorer, Jose Hernandez, who scored 21 points and is averaging 12.5 points per game on the season.

The Red Raiders face a tough end to their season as half of their remaining games are against Power Pack teams. This includes a huge matchup at (2)St. John's to end the regular season.

2. St. John's

Record: 12-2, 4-1

Points Per Game: 68.9 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 47.3 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Alex Fisher - 10.9 PPG

The Pioneers fall from their top spot this week, but do not fall far as the end up back in the two-spot following a 64-57 loss to St. Peter-Marian. Adham Floyd and Charlie Murray both scored 13 while T.J. Kelley added 12, once again showing off a balanced offensive attack for the Pioneers.

The Pioneers hit a brutal stretch in their schedule as they face Power Pack ranked opponents in three of the final eight games as well as a home-and-home with Doherty who just fell out of the Power Pack this week. They face games versus (7)Worcester South, at (4)Wachusett and versus (3)Fitchburg before the end of the season.

1. St. Peter-Marian

Record: 12-2, 4-1

Points Per Game: 66.3 Points Per Game

Points Allowed Per Game: 57.0 Points Per Game

Leading Scorer: Makai Ashton-Langford - 16.5 PPG

The Guardians vault back into the top spot in the Power Pack after avenging their loss to St. John's with a big 64-57 win. Makai Ashton-Langford continued to lead the Guardians, exploding for 26 points in the game, moving his team leading total to 16.5 points per game.

After powering through a tough non-league schedule, the Guardians schedule eases up a bit as they face only two teams in the Power Pack for the rest of the season. They need to make sure not to have a let down this week, however as they travel to (7)Worcester South on Tuesday night.
