Florida, Arizona set to state FAB 50 cases

By Mark Tennis and Doug Huff

By the time next week's POWERADE FAB 50 rankings are released, there could be as many as one-third of the slots for the final rankings of the season sewn up.

Florida's state championships will be decided this weekend, and then all the trophies in Arizona will be hoisted by Tuesday.

Red Mountain (Mesa, Ariz.) is the highest-ranked team from either state heading into this week, and if the Mountain Lions win a third straight state title, this time in Division I, they have an outside shot of finishing No. 1. For that to happen, though, at least three top teams in California, plus Alexander Central (Taylorsville, N.C.), would have to lose.
