POWERADE hoops rankings: Week 6

January, 18, 2012
The top two teams in the Connecticut POWERADE state rankings remain undefeated, but No. 3 Northwest Catholic suffered its first loss of the season at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

The defeat won't hurt Northwest Catholic very much in this week's rankings, as it came to an out-of-state DeMatha (Md.) squad. But it will be interesting to see how the Indians respond.

Ridgefield climbs into the top five for the first time this season, but it won't be easy for the Tigers to stay there. They have dates with Danbury (7-1) on Friday and No. 9 Trinity Catholic (7-3) on Tuesday.
