Latest Region 5B Basketball Standings

On this, the final night of the regular season, we get a glimpse of some of what is settled, and what's left to be determined in Class 5, Region B in high school basketball.

BOYS: Varina should be the top seed with Henrico just behind, followed by Meadowbrook and L.C. Bird. These seeds aren't official, but will be in 24 hours. Seeds 5 to 10 are still in flux, as current #9 Hermitage and current #11 Mills Godwin play tonight. It's not known whether a Godwin win could move them up the one position they need to make the playoffs, as the top ten teams in the seventeen-team region qualifies. #5 Glen Allen has Hanover tonight while #6 Douglas Freeman plays Thomas Jefferson.

STANDINGS:

1) Varina (17-3, 48.250)
2) Henrico (19-3, 48.0)
3) Meadowbrook (14-7, 43.048)
4) L.C. Bird (16-6, 41.273)
5) Glen Allen (13-8, 40.048)
6) Douglas Freeman (13-8, 39.857)
7) Atlee (13-9, 39.227)
8) Highland Springs (8-11, 38.211)
9) Hermitage (10-11, 38.0)
10) Deep Run (12-10, 37.636)
---
11) Mills Godwin (8-13, 36.333)
12) Prince George (10-12, 36.182)
13) Manchester (9-13, 34.182)


GIRLS: Highland Springs has locked up the top seed, while Matoaca is solidly at #2 with their impressive 20-2 record. Glen Allen, who ended 17-5, will be the third seed, followed by L.C. Bird likely at #4. Again, as on the boys side, seeds #5 to #10 could shuffle. A Mills Godwin win over Hermitage tonight may not be enough to catch the Skyhawks, but would clinch the fifth seed as #6 Midlothian is done at 14-8 and #7 Henrico has finished at 16-6. Eighth-seeded Meadowbrook plays Colonial Heights tonight trying to ensure a first round home game on Friday. Ninth-seeded Atlee is rooting for Colonial Heights so that maybe the Raiders and Monarchs switch positions, and the game would be at Atlee. Deep Run is done at 13-9 and at #10

STANDINGS:

1) Highland Springs (19-2, 49.333)
2) Matoaca (20-2, 47.682)
3) Glen Allen (17-5, 44.182)
4) L.C. Bird (15-7, 41.182)
5) Mills Godwin (14-7, 40.857)
6) Midlothian (14-8, 40.591)
7) Henrico (16-6, 40.5)
8) Meadowbrook (13-8, 38.857)
9) Atlee (15-7, 38.636)
10) Deep Run (13-9, 38.0)
---
11) Manchester (10-12, 35.5)
12) Prince George (8-13, 32.857)
13) Douglas Freeman (7-13, 31.7)

NOTE: The Region 5B Championship begins Friday as the #10 seed visits the #7 seed, and the #9 seed goes to the #8 seed in the first round. The top six teams earn byes to quarterfinal play on Tuesday night. The official, final standings and tournament brackets will be released on Wednesday.

  1. Herm has a losing record and Deep Run has beaten them both times, yet DRHS is ranked below Hermitage. C'mon now
