Team to beat

Westinghouse: After losing in the City League title game three consecutive seasons, the Bulldogs dethroned two-time defending champion Allderdice last season. Look for a repeat performance this season, as the Bulldogs return senior guard-forward Jasmine Myers (16 points per game), an All-City selection the past two years. Senior guard-forward Brittany Jackson is another key player.

Contenders

Allderdice: Senior guard Sierra Fordham (20.9 ppg) is the reigning City League Player of the Year. Fordham and junior guard Maria DiDonato form an excellent backcourt. The Dragons have led the league in scoring the past four seasons.

Obama: The Eagles won the City League regular-season championship a season ago, but suffered a playoff loss in the semifinals. Junior guard Samone Rainey will help them try to reach the championship this time.

Others

Carrick: Junior guard Chardonnay Littlejohn (21.8 ppg) led the league in scoring last season after averaging 14 as a freshman.

Perry: The Commodores will try to rebound from back-to-back three-win seasons.

Brashear: Much improvement will be needed if the Bulls are to bounce back from a 1-22 season.
