It was quite a topsy-turvy couple weeks in Division 1, especially the holiday tournaments. As it sorted out, Madison East was left as the lone remaining unbeaten team in the division, and the #1-ranked squad for the first time in many years. Brookfield Central is second after a solid showing at the Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout, while former #1 Sussex Hamilton drops to third with three losses, the last two to out-of-state teams.
While Nicolet remains a clear top team in the Division 2 rankings, the rest of the division is as muddied as D1. Unbeaten Green Bay Southwest moves up to second after a couple impressive wins at the WBY Shootout. Milwaukee Washington is now 5-4, but three of the losses are to out-of-state teams in the last couple weeks. The Purgolders do remain the rankings at fourth, however. West Bend East and Milwaukee Madison are new teams into the rankings this week.
Martin Luther dropped a pair of games at the Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout, but both came against ranked Division 1 teams. A win over second-ranked Waupun, not to mention victories against Milwaukee Washington, East Troy, and Racine St. Catherine's, is enough to keep the Spartans in the top spot, however. Waupun also dropped its first game of the season but remains at #2. Brookfield Academy, Stratford, and Platteville are new to the polls.
Roncalli is unbeaten and the new top-ranked team in Division 4 this week. The Jets unseat New Glarus, who lost its first game of the season to Darlington and drop to third, one spot behind the unbeaten Redbirds of Darlington. Clear Lake and Lourdes Academy round out the top five. Osseo-Fairchild and Cameron are new to this week's poll.
Sheboygan Lutheran continues to dominate the voting in Division 5, where fellow unbeaten Columbus Catholic is second. Almond-Bancroft suffered its first loss of the year, a 72-49 defeat at the hands of Stratford, dropping from sixth to seventh. Young Coggs Prep is the only new teams in this week's poll at #10.
