URBANDALE, Iowa -- There is a new No. 1 team in the Week 5 National Prep Basketball Poll.
Defending Ohio Division I champion Northland (Columbus) is now the nation's top-ranked team. The Vikings moved up from No. 4 after last week's 53-52 defeat of defending Prep Poll champion and then-No. 1 Findlay (Henderson, Nev.). Ohio State-bound big man Jared Sullinger was the star of the game, scoring 32 points and grabbing 17 rebounds.
Not since future NBA megastar LeBron James led St. Vincent-St. Mary (Akron) to the 2003 Prep Poll title has the nation's top-rated team hailed from the state of Ohio.
