Plenty of showdown games among boys Top 20 teams

It's another big week of showdown matchups in area boys basketball, especially the ultra-competitive Delta River League.

No. 18 Roseville, which moves into The Bee's Top 20 for the first time after beating defending Sierra Foothill League co-champion Granite Bay 69-66 on Thursday, plays at No. 14 Del Oro tonight in a battle of league unbeatens. Both are 3-0 in the SFL.

On Wednesday, No. 2 Jesuit plays host to No. 3 Pleasant Grove and top-ranked Sheldon plays at No. 12 Oak Ridge in Delta River League games. Sheldon and Pleasant Grove are both 3-0 in league.

In other Wednesday games, No. 6 Foothill travels to No. 13 Center for a critical Pioneer Valley League contest; and No. 11 Kennedy plays at No. 8 Burbank in a Metro Conference matchup.

On Thursday, No. 19 Granite Bay plays host to Del Oro and on Friday, Sheldon plays host to Pleasant Grove and Jesuit is at No. 15 Folsom.
