The top storylines, news, notes and milestones from the week that was in high school basketball.

Team of the Week
No. 4 Sierra Canyon (Calif.) won back-to-back games against Top 10 teams en route to the championship of the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions in Springfield, Mo. The Trailblazers got 22 points and 16 rebounds from UCLA-bound senior forward Cody Riley to lead a 75-59 win against No. 6 Memphis East (Tenn.) in the championship game. In the semifinals, Sierra Canyon crushed No. 9 Findlay Prep (Nev.), 76-47. The preseason No. 1 Trailblazers have a shot to inch back closer to the top ranking if they can defeat currently top-ranked La Lumiere (Ind.) on Monday at the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

Worth Noting
Defending Prep Poll champion Chino Hills (Calif.) extended its winning streak to 53 games by defeating Etiwanda, 72-67. The second-ranked Wolves are now 13 wins shy of the California state record. … No. 11 Patrick School (N.J.) beat regionally ranked St. Anthony (N.J.), 51-47, ending the Friars’ 41-game winning streak. … Ohio State-committed four-star forward Kaleb Wesson scored 43 points with 14 rebounds to lead Westville South (Ohio) to an 82-54 rout of Cathedral Prep (Pa.) at the Burger King Classic in Erie, Pa.

For the Record
Senior Kobe Lufkin of Argyle (N.Y.) unofficially set a state record for career 3-pointers in the Empire State. Lufkin made two shots from beyond the arc during an 85-62 win over Whitehall, pushing his career total to 344.

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.
