Week 19 National Prep Basketball Poll released

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Top-ranked Oak Hill (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) can lock up its record-setting seventh National Prep Poll title this weekend at the ESPN RISE National High School Invitational in North Bethesda, Md.

The inaugural event is the closest high school basketball has come to deciding a national champion via a post-season tournament in nearly 80 years. The eight-team bracket features five teams ranked in this week's National Prep Poll, including four in the Top 15.

No. 1 Oak Hill is the top seed, with No. 2 Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) taking the second seed on the opposite side of the bracket. This sets up a potential championship game matchup between undefeated No. 1 vs. No. 2 teams Sunday afternoon on ESPN to decide a true high school national championship on the court.

For the last three weeks you have shown Biloxi, Ms with a 30-2 record in your Southeast rankings. Biloxi did win the 5A state championship in Miss. but a week later we had our Grand Slam tournament to crown an overall champ and Biloxi was beaten by 4A Champion Jackson Callaway high school which won the Grand Slam and finished 33-6. Biloxi finished 33-3 and second in the state.

All five starters on Hopkins (MN) are going to receive Division 1 scholarships next year. They deserve to be at the top with Oak Hill.
