Final regular-season rankings for 2020: Edison goes wire-to-wire as No. 1, while Bedford, Chandler Park finish in the top 25

By: MATTHEW B. MOWERY, March 2, 2020, 2:06 am

March is here, and along with it comes the postseason. The conference races are done, as is the regular season. After today’s rankings — which reflect only that regular-season success — everyone reverts to 0-0, and the only rankings that matter from here on out are the ones that denote how far your postseason run extended. All those regular-season accolades are nice, but nothing compares to hoisting that trophy at midcourt at the Breslin Center.
