Week 15 National Prep Basketball Poll released

WAUKEE, Iowa -- Sixth-ranked Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, Va.) wrapped up its regular season with a 54-53 win over preseason-Top 25 Paul VI (Fairfax, Va.) for the Division I Virginia Independent Schools title. It was the Dolphins' 31st win this season and likely secures them a spot in the Dick's Sporting Goods High School Nationals (April 2-4). The eight-team tournament field will most assuredly also include top-ranked Oak Hill (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) and No. 2 Montverde Academy.
