Ranney were in the top 25 with 2 top 10 players. Former Terp Tahj Holden is their coach.

Then it must have been a typical BS ranking 'cause it seems that they are around 500 now and is that even more over-hyped ranking BS....

Clearly all everything spoken about basketball  is somebody's b.s. opinion.  Difference is some get paid for their opinions and others be on message boards for free hoping they get heard. 

Those two top 10 players on that Ranney team, well those two are wanted by every college out there and projected to be NBA prospects. That's b.s. and all too. Lol.

Both Quickley and 'Sticks' were selected to the McDonald's All-American game.

A little bit about Ranney. Not sure why the negativity. Instead of recognizing a good win for a local team, you chose to go negative..

Not negative BMore but just being realistic and straight up.  Over stating Ranney to "BMore" than what they are and MSJ beating them doesn't better posture MSJ, especially when MSJ defeated Ranney by 23 points.  That alone make Ranney not as good as over stated.  It was so clear that MSJ is the much better team, the positive, so clearly for them to stand upon without the leg up.  Good work and good win MSJ but ALL wins are good for the winner....

Not trying to be negative but don't overstate an OK win to be more than it really is. Had never heard of the school or seen them in the top HS rankings. I never scrolled down that far. 473 is a lot of scrolls. Beat a top 50 team and I'll give you props. Beat a team at 473 and you want props, a pat on the back, you were supposed to beat them. Good job, now go beat some other good teams. Hope it's not a millennial thing.

It was a good win for the unregarded MSJ players. NBA scouts and college coaches got to see them against 2 projected lottery picks. There's more to basketball then what this messsge boards says. Limited views make limited minded people. MSJ represented Baltimore MD well with what they built in-house coming in as freshman, no out of state transfers or international trsnsfers or local transfers. 

In fact it was great win for MSJ with a high level of difficulty for their current roster construction during this current season.

You top this, top that, national ranked speaking lovers just floor me.  The Ranney team with the supposed two bad@zz all-worlds were beaten by 23-points by MSJ.  Ranney is NOT a TOP national team as stated.  Of all the basketball games going on all over the country, how do you know NBA scouts and college coaches were so interested and perched in the stands to see Ranney take on "UNREGARDED" MSJ???  Please stop the over-the-top cheap fluffy fluff homer banter!!!  MSJ did not "represent" Baltimore with a so-called built-in house team.  MSJ merely represented MSJ as a better team beating a not as good Ranney team.  MSJ beating Ranney was NOT a GREAT unexpected underdog win homer...  It was merely a win that was good like all wins.

Your first mistake is following the Max Prep Rankings. I simply pointed out a good win and you can see by the link provided Ranney has some talent. The game was part of a large event in Springfield, MA, and included many of the top teams and players in the country. And yes the games were attended by some NBA scouts and big time college coaches.In the clippings, Ranney was advertised with a  national ranking.  I will be the first to admit there are many polls out there and t take them with a grain of salt, but still a good win for St. Joe.

And your mistake was perhaps following the APP Ranking / Poll - their local Ashbury Park Press listing.  Yes, you pointed out a good win of MSJ over Ranney but all wins are good.  Again, MSJ was NOT an underdog to Ranney and in fact MSJ was much higher ranked than Ranney with all the ALL-WORLD NBA prospect players you think Ranney has.  Give it up, MSJ beat who they should have beaten ---- and by 23.

Two 5 star recruits:

https://247sports.com/Player/Scottie-Lewis-86974

 

Both offered already by Duke, Kansas, and Kentucky. Not a team that should lose by 23 to anybody.

Beat a Top DC team like Gonzaga, Paul Vith, or DeMatha. Need a win for Baltimore. I'll give you all the props in the world. 2 on 5, you won, good job. Win some more.

A simple reference to a good win by a local team - was not asking for props. You are calling yourself 58 Colt but seem to be a DC guy..interesting..

But Ranney did lose to MSJ by 23-points!!!!!!  And they may have lost other games and maybe lose more.  Two 5-stars -----  give me a break!!!  :D
