Top Three Storylines

Top-ranked Chino Hills increased to 11 its season total of wins against current or formerly ranked teams with a 98-81 win over regionally ranked Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas). McDonald’s All-American guard Lonzo Ball led the Wolves with 27 points. His younger brothers LaMelo and LiAngelo Ball added 25 and 22 points, respectively.

A pair of teams elevated from the regional polls to the national rankings this week. Making its season debut in the Top 25 is No. 24 Wayne (Ohio). The Warriors (20-0) have defeated teams from six different states. No. 25 Apple Valley (Minn.) is back in the national poll after a two-month absence. The only loss for the Eagles (21-1) was to No. 18 Hopkins (Minn.).

One of the biggest nosedives in this week’s rankings belonged to Garfield (Seattle), which dropped from No. 7 to No. 14 after losing to regionally ranked Rainier Beach (Seattle). It’s the first time the Bulldogs have been out of the Top 10 this season.

Top Three Risers

1. Long Island Lutheran (N.Y.)
2. Federal Way (Wash.)
3. Overland (Colo.)

Top Three Feats  

Kentucky-bound senior guard De’Aaron Fox exploded for 50 points to lift Cypress Lakes (Texas) to an 83-63 win over Cypress Woods. It’s the fifth time Fox has scored more than 40 in a game this season.

Highly touted sophomore Javonte Smart of regionally ranked Scotlandville (La.) also hit the 50-point mark last week. The five-star point guard poured in 50 points and also grabbed 10 rebounds in a 100-50 rout of Zachary.

Colorado Academy (Denver) set a state record for 3-pointers in a game. The Mustangs drained 24 shots from beyond the arc during a 100-70 win against Manual.

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.
