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

Team of the Week
Defending Prep Poll champion Chino Hills (Calif.) grabbed control of the No. 1 ranking for the first time this season. UCLA-committed senior guard LiAngelo Ball scored 60 points as the Wolves (20-0) crushed Los Osos, 136-93, for their 55th win in a row. It’s the third time Ball has scored 60 or more points in a game this season and the 10th time Chino Hills has scored over 100.

Worth Noting
Despite collecting its second win over a Top 10 this season, Nathan Hale (Seattle) remained No. 2 in the national rankings for now. The Raiders edged No. 9 Oak Hill Academy (Va.), 80-77, at the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass., last Monday and also own a win over No. 3 Sierra Canyon (Calif.). Five-star Washington recruit Michael Porter Jr. is averaging over 30 points per game. … The aforementioned third-ranked Sierra Canyon knocked off last week’s No. 1 team, La Lumiere (Ind.), 76-74, at the HoopHall Classic. The Trailblazers (16-1) are an impressive 6-1 against current or formerly ranked teams this season.

For the Record
Regionally ranked Federal Way (Wash.) set a Class 4A state record for consecutive wins. The Eagles mauled Ferndale, 69-36, for their 60th consecutive win.

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.
