The Best of 2018

by Transition Hoops Report

It’s amazing how big a difference a year can make. Two of the players in the top 3 and four of the players in the top 10 weren’t even on the list the last time we did rankings (click here to see the previous list).  

So what does this all mean? Well, it means the talent in the northwest is growing and the top players are starting to separate themselves from the pack.
