This national high school basketball ranking combines multiple available polls for a period of time into a single poll, and creates a ranking for each team based on their average ranking, number of times they are ranked in the various polls, the highest ranking that teams has in those polls and the position ranking out of all ranked teams for the period. Read more about today’s cumulative ranking below.

The polls seem to have settled on their own opinions for Prime Prep and Huntington; some have ranked Prime as high as #4 while others still maintain them slightly lower. Huntington has dropped in all but one of the polls (USA Today). Oak Hill continues to cling to a tenuous grasp on being ranked, and no team has seen more wild swings in rankings this year than Simeon. One sleeper that’s found it’s way up in the rankings after not being ranked at the beginning of the year is Lake Oswego, ranked as high as #10 in one poll.
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.
