The Continental League has three of the top teams in the state, each of them I could see being number 1 in the division when the season ends. Here is our prediction for the top 5 teams in the Continental league.
1. Rock Canyon
Rock Canyon made a good run last year to the elite eight and is returning 6 players.will be back to run the show for Rock Canyon from the point guard spot. Last season he led the team in scoring and was a floor general who put his team in the right spots on offense. will be stepping into a bigger role looking to use his versatile scoring and passing. saw good minutes as a sophomore last year and will be a major contributor, the 6’4 guard has a great frame and is a knockdown shooter off the catch. Other contributors will be: , Kevin Fuches, , and .
2. Mountain Vista
Mountain Vista last year had a good run stopped by Rock Canyon but these two rivals will surely be fighting neck and neck for the top spot.is one of the top players in the state, standing at 6’9 Caden can do a bit of everything on the floor and is a great passer for a big man. is an athletic combo-guard who has built great chemistry playing alongside Caden. Brendan Diehl is an all-out hustle glue guy who makes the extra effort on the floor. is a big wing with a knockdown jumper and slashing ability, all of these guys played AAU together during their 17U season with Elevation Flyers building up great chemistry. (also played with Elevation) and are two shooters to know as well.
The returning 5A state champs graduated all of their varsity contributors except for one and still have one of the top teams in the state.the number one player in the class of 2024 in Colorado is a big guard who showed the ability to step up in big situations. and both were on varsity but did not see a ton of minutes but both are top 15 juniors in the state who will be names to know. They also have great height with two transfer big men and Kayin Scott. This is a new team but they are deep with talent and height once again.
4. Douglas County
Douglas County made a deep run in the playoffs last year and will return some good players.is a big shooter who improved his defense and rebounding last year and is a potential senior breakout prospect. as a freshman had a big role on the team standing out with his effort on the defensive end. will be the other guard in the backcourt who has a knack for getting to the basket where he is a crafty finisher and good dish-off passer.
5. Regis Jesuit
Regis Jesuit always seems to have a solid team, and it looks like they will again this upcoming season. Their backcourt will be led by two bulky guardsand who are both excellent finishers at the rim. is a younger shooter to keep an eye on who could have a big role as a sophomore. There is also the potential return of who got injured early last season but could be a big contributor once he is back, hoping he has had a good recovery process.
