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

Team of the Week
Top-ranked Nathan Hale (Seattle) captured the Washington Class 3A state championship with a 68-51 win against Garfield (Seattle). Senior forward Michael Porter Jr. – a Washington commit and the nation’s highest-rated recruit – finished with 27 points and 17 rebounds. It was the Raiders’ eighth win of the season against a current or formerly ranked team. Their top two wins were against No. 4 Sierra Canyon (Calif.) and No. 10 Oak Hill Academy (Va.). Nathan Hale is likely to be invited to the season-ending Dick’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals, where it could further solidify its national-title credentials, but early signs point toward the team turning down that invitation.

Worth Noting
No. 3 Bishop Montgomery earned the CIF Southern Section Open Division title with a 70-55 win over No. 8 Mater Dei. The Knights trailed for most of the first three quarters but finished the game on a 30-9 run. Four-star senior guard Ethan Thompson (Oregon St.) led the way with 23 points. … Trinity Episcopal (Richmond, Va.) joined the regional rankings after running past then-regionally ranked Paul VI, 95-78, for the Virginia Independent Schools Division I state title. Senior Zach Jacobs (James Madison) led the Titans with 38 points. … Regionally ranked Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) crushed Edgewater (Orlando), 75-43, to repeat as Class 7A champion and earn its seventh state crown overall. … Alabama recruit John Petty had 22 points and 11 rebounds to lift regionally ranked Mae Jemison (Ala.) to a 58-52 win over Faith Academy (Mobile) for the Class 5A state crown.

For the Record
No individual or team records of note to report this week.

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.
