Top Three Storylines

Top-ranked Chino Hills (Calif.) opened up postseason play with a 100-66 rout of Santa Margarita in the CIF-SS Open Division playoffs. It’s the 14th time the Wolves (28-0) have reached the century mark this season. Meanwhile, No. 2 Montverde Academy (Fla.) will be watching from the sidelines as Chino Hill attempts to wrap up a state and national championship. The three-time defending Prep Poll champion Eagles have begun a six-week layoff before a likely appearance in the Dick’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals on March 31-April 2 in New York.

Providence Day (N.C.) became the first Top 25 team to capture a state championship this season. The No. 18 Chargers (30-3) beat regionally ranked High Point Christian (N.C.), 67-53, for the North Carolina Independent Schools Class 3A crown. It was their 20th consecutive win.

No. 24 Simeon (Chicago) returned to the national poll after beating three of the Top 11 teams in Chicago over the weekend. The Wolverines toppled regionally ranked Morgan Park on Friday, took down state-ranked Evanston on Saturday, and then capped things off with a 54-49 defeat of Kenwood Sunday night for the Chicago Public League championship. 

Top Three Risers

Senior guard Quentin Gooden recorded a quadruple double – with 14 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists, and 10 steals – to lead Taylor County (Ky.) to a 75-41 win against Nelson County. Gooden will play at Xavier next season.

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.

Stevens Point is incredible. They're the best 3 pt shooting team in Wisconsin history. They'd give any team in the nation a terrific ball game. I'd love to see them play Chino!
