Week 10 National Prep Basketball Poll released

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For the ninth straight week, there was no change at the top of the National Prep Poll weekly basketball rankings.

At the approximate midway point of the season, the top seven teams in the Week 10 poll remained the same, headed by top-ranked Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.). The Monarchs are now 20-0, including four wins against current or previously ranked teams.

Three teams jumped into the Top 25 this week, including the re-entry of defending Prep Poll champion St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.). The Friars are looking to make a strong run down the stretch now that forward Devon Collier and two other talented junior transfers have gained eligibility.

Nationally ranked for the first time this season are No. 21 Jamesville-DeWitt (DeWitt, N.Y.) and No. 24 Atlantic Shores Christian (Chesapeake, Va.). Led by Syracuse-bound G Brandon Triche, Jamesville-DeWitt has won 35 straight games. Atlantic Shores Christian features a star-studded backcourt with Oklahoma-bound senior Steven Pledger and junior Duke commit Andre Dawkins.

Why doesnt Blue Ridge School St. George Va. get a nod in at least the South region poll

Beat your #3 SOUTH REGION Atlantic Shores & Virginia Independent # 1 ranked division 2 & 3 teams .

Also beat North Carolina Div.1A Greenfield School in the season opening tournament that included the loss to Christ School.

The Barons Face Oakhill next Friday !

I cannot believe that Blue Ridge is not ranked nationally.. They are clearly better than Atlantic Shores as is evident by their 14 point victory and 16 game win streak. However, no one in St. George is too worried because the state polls are all that really matter and the record speaks for itself.

St. Anne's Belfield of Charlottesville is 14-1 and only lost to Blue Ridge (#1 private in Va.) in OT. Maybe a little love here as well.
