Top Three Storylines

· It’s only the second weekly rankings of the season, and we already have a new No. 1-ranked team. Chino Hills replaces fellow SoCal power Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth) in the top spot. Led by UCLA-bound senior point guard Lonzo Ball, the Huskies have scored over 100 points in four out of five games. Sierra Canyon dropped all the way back into the regional rankings after falling to regionally ranked Moreau Catholic in its season opener.

· Two of the best early season national events took place this past weekend with the Marshall County Hoopfest (Ky.) and the Chicago Elite Classic. The top game at the Hoopfest saw No. 5 Oak Hill Academy build an 18-point second-half lead then hold on to defeat No. 8 Chaminade, 69-62. Duke commit Jayson Tatum had 27 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort.

· The biggest win in Chicago was No. 3 DeMatha holding off regionally ranked St. Vincent-St. Mary, 65-57. Markelle Fultz (Washington) paced DeMatha with 23 points. A close second would be fellow Washington Catholic Athletic Conference power Gonzaga College catapulting to No. 10 nationally after downing Riverside-Brookfield, 78-64.

Top Three Risers

1. Prolific Prep (Calif.)
2. Gonzaga (D.C.)
3. Greenforest Christian (Ga.)

Top Three Feats

Senior guard Lonzo Ball (a UCLA recruit) averaged 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists as No. 1 Chino Hills (Calif.) went 5-0 at the Battle Zone Tournament in Corona, Calif. The Huskies averaged 108 points per game in the tournament.

Despite playing in only three quarters of a 96-45 rout of Hallsville, Father Tolton (Columbia, Mo.) Michael Porter Jr. scored 45 points with 14 rebounds and seven assists. The 6-foot-9 five-star junior has averaged 30 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists in four games.

Senior Austin Reaves of Cedar Ridge (Newark, Ark.) scored a whopping 73 points to lift his team to a 117-115 triple-overtime win over Forrest City at the Barry Pruitt Hurricane Classic in Jonesboro, Ark. Reaves scored 18 points in the three overtime sessions. Not be overlooked, senior R.J. Glasper scored 59 points in defeat for Forrest City.

About the PrepNation National Prep Poll
The PrepNation National Prep Poll is a continuation of World Feature Syndicate’s National Prep Poll, which was published and distributed to the Associated Press and other news organizations from 1987 to 2015.

The National Prep Poll is second only to the USA Today Super 25 as the longest continually published weekly high school rankings. While a product of World Features Syndicate (1987-2015), the National Prep Poll was the only high school poll distributed to newspapers and websites around the United States by the Associated Press.

Before authoring rankings for Student Sports and ESPN, National High School Sports Hall of Fame journalist Doug Huff compiled the National Prep Poll rankings from 1987 until 1999. Current author Jamie DeMoney has compiled the poll since the start of the 1999 basketball season to the present.

Among the criteria used in the weekly compilation of the National Prep Poll rankings are strength of schedule, the ability to accomplish the ultimate goal on a team's schedule (i.e. winning a championship), impact players and performers, a team's coaching and recent tradition.

About was originally launched August 1, 2001 by Jamie DeMoney for the purpose of creating a permanent online home for the National Prep Poll football and boys basketball rankings.
