The basketball rankings are out, courtesy of the coaches association.

As expected, Maize drops after losing to Olathe Northwest, while W. South moves up to No. 2.

In 5A girls, Kapaun, Newton, Andover Central, Miege all in the top 10, will be at the Newton tourney, along with Olathe Northwest, ranked in 6A.

On the boys side, BV Northwest is still holding strong at 1 in 6A, as it should. North is now at 2, despite the loss to 5A’s No. 1, SM South, likely because Conner Frankamp didn’t play in that game on Saturday at dodge City. Makes sense.

4A boys is just so ridiculously tough. Ottawa, Highland Park, McPherson as the top three.

    How on earth can Holcomb girls be ranked over Hillsboro with two losses in a tournament that Hillsboro won

  • JJFlash

    Hahaha…Hov, rankings never make sense! I think they sit in a room with the top 10 teams listed on a sheet of paper and throw a dart. It’s that scientific!

    Ok, that dreaded #3 is still next to Maize, come on girls, get it done!

  • JJFlash

    The #1 ranking for Maize Girls basketball was fun while it lasted all of a week.
    I know b007, how I hate the #3! Getting pretty old with Maize Girls soccer…hopefully they do something about it this upcoming season. Come to think of it…I don’t even like #2!
