Week 10 Girls Basketball Rankings

McEachern's girls moved up three places after big wins over Alabama teams.

Two preseason favorites that had accrued a handful of losses each made big moves this week in the highest classification. Norcross moved up from No. 5 to No. 3 after a big win over Class AAAAA No. 1 Buford on MLK Day. McEachern moved from No. 8 to No. 5 after defeating two of Alabama’s best teams back-to-back. Westlake and Collins Hill remain in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively.

Lovejoy remains on top of Class AAAAAA for the second-straight week. Harrison falls to Class AAAAA No. 1 Buford but stays No. 2, and Winder-Barrow absorbs a 30-point loss to Riverdale (Tenn.), a top-three team nationally according to MaxPreps, but stays in third. Alpharetta drops out of the Top 10 after back-to-back losses. Sequoyah enteres the rankings at No. 10.

Dutchtown slid in the Class AAAAA poll from No. 2 to No. 7 after a 54-46 loss to Eagle’s Landing. Flowery Branch is the new No. 2 and a surging Harris County squad moves up to No. 3.

In Class AAAA, Westover replaced Americus-Sumter in the poll following a 51-45 win over the Panthers and makes its debut at No. 9.

The Beach Lady Bulldogs (16-1) hold the top spot in Class AAA with fellow 2016 semifinalist Greater Atlanta Christian chasing. But the talent churning beneath the top two is undeniable. Unbeaten No. 3 Franklin County, No. 4 Johnson-Savannah (10-3) and No. 5 Central-Macon (13-2) are waiting, patiently.

In Class AA, unbeaten Laney (17-0, 7-0), was hardly challenged through the holidays and into region play after surviving a 67-60 victory over No. 8 Josey. Dodge County fell from No. 2 to No. 6 following a loss to new No. 3 Washington County, 71-52.

Greensville’s eight-game win streak extended after a dominating 82-19 win over Hawkinsville, keeping them at the top of Class A-Public. Telfair County’s loss to Wilcox County allowed Pelham to squeeze into the No. 2 spot. Telfair remains in the top three and will look to bounce back against Echols County.

Holy Innocents’ has now won 15 straight games and remains at the top of Class A-Private. Wesleyan rolled over Galloway 94-31, keeping the Lady Wolves at the No. 2 spot. St. Francis’ three losses on the year are all to No. 1-ranked teams. Their matchup against King’s Ridge should continue their success streak.
