POWERADE hoops rankings: Simeon loses, still No. 1

By By Mike Grimala

Simeon saw its hopes for a national championship go up in smoke over the weekend at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., as the Wolverines suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Findlay Prep (Nev.).

The loss dropped Simeon from No. 1 to No. 9 in the national POWERADE FAB 50, while Findlay Prep rose from No. 6 to No. 3. The Illinois rankings aren't impacted, however, as the loss came to an out-of-state team and Simeon has earned the right to be called No. 1 in Illinois until one of its peers proves otherwise.
