Week 11 Boys Basketball Rankings

The top three of McEachern, Pebblebrook and Norcross stay the same in Class AAAAAAA, but Newton shoots up to No. 4 after wins over Class AAA Morgan County, one of the best teams in the state regardless of level, and a ranked Grayson squad. Collins Hill falls from No. 7 to No. 9 after splitting with Discovery since our last rankings.

Gainesville returns to its preseason ranking of No. 1, notching a big win against Buford. Bradwell Institute knocks off previous No. 1 Brunswick for the first time in three tries this season; Bradwell moves up one place and Brunswick falls to No. 3. Lanier stumbled against a sub-.500 Centennial team and falls from No. 7 to No. 10.

Buford swapped places with Warner Robins and took No. 1 in Class AAAAA following the Demons’ 80-65 loss to Class 7A Newton. Southwest DeKalb suffered a 55-46 overtime loss to Columbia that dropped the Panthers to No. 7 and put Columbia in the poll for the first time at No. 9. Eagle’s Landing jumped to No. 6 and sent Stockbridge down to No. 10 with a 62-54 victory.

In Class AAAA, No. 1 Upson-Lee (21-0) demolished Mary Persons 89-58 and cruised past West Laurens 77-50 to record its 53rd straight victory. St. Pius leads the rest of the field at No. 2, while Americus-Sumter’s climbed to No. 3 with a key region victory over previous No. 5 Carver-Columbus (the Tigers dropped to No. 9.) Westover slid from No. 6 to No. 10 following a 70-54 loss to Northside-Columbus.

Despite dropping a game to Class AAAAAAA No. 3 Newton, Morgan County holds the top spot again this week. With a victory over previous No. 2 Jenkins, new No. 2 Johnson-Savannah moves up one spot in the polls to No. 2. Jenkins settles for third.

Top-ranked Glenn Hills, without two of its starting players, fell to No. 3 Laney 59-49, its first loss of the season. Previously second-ranked Thomasville dropped a game to Class A-Public Pelham, 60-59, and dropped to fifth.

After solid performances by each team in the top three of Class A-Public, their positions remain unchanged. Lanier County is the only team among the three to have a region loss. Central suffered three losses before ending their losing streak against Marion County. This allowed Woodville-Tompkins to jump to the No. 4 spot.

All remains the same in the top three spots of Class A-Private. No positions have changed, and each team remains undefeated in the region while having a winning streak of at least eight. After previously losing to Christian Heritage by one in quadruple overtime, North Cobb Christian walked away from its second meeting with a 71-52 win to advance it ahead of the previous No. 4 team.
