Notes:
After running a close #2 all season, Findlay Prep gets two big events that pushed them into the #1 spot. Findlay beat previous #1 Montverde in a head to head match up at the Hoophall Classic, but Montverde had already dropped a game over the same weekend. Nigel Williams-Goss made his latest case to be included as an All-American in the win. Meanwhile, more shakeups down the rankings as several teams who had high initial rankings or scored big upsets early in the season stumble. Most curious is the case of Huntington Prep, which has lost 2 games but still ranked very high in some of the polls, or more specifically, ESPN. Olympic continues to climb in the national rankings and Paul VI continues to surge back up into several polls.

This week’s poll includes four sources: Hoopniks, ESPN, USA Today and PrepNation. MaxPreps also released polls during this period but I haven’t included them, due to the fact that they segment private academies from public high schools. I am not sure how, or if, I will incorporate their rankings back into the cumulative rankings.

Finally: In the poll listing, the ‘high’ value represents the highest ranking in any poll that team received during the ranking period.
‘Qty’ represents how many polls they were ranked in. ‘AVG’ represents their average ranking in all polls where they were ranked.
