Preseason MIAA Top 25 boys hoop poll is here


This afternoon, we've unveiled the initial MIAA Top 25 poll of the boys basketball season, and you can find it here. And unlike last season, when many polls tabbed either St. John's Prep or Central Catholic as the preseason favorite, there is no clear consensus at No. 1 in the state -- so to that end, we expect plenty of debate.

Central Catholic, which bowed out to Prep in a thrilling Division 1 North semifinal last spring, enters the season as the preseason No. 1. Charlestown (2), defending Division 2 state champ New Mission (3), defending Divsion 1 state champ St. John's Prep (4) and King Philip (5) round out the top five.
