The top team in Indiana doesn't participate in the IHSAA tournament, so La Lumiere hasn't taken the court in a while. But make no mistake, the No. 1 Lakers are still the state's premier squad. They will get a chance to compete for a national championship when they take part in the NHSI tournament at the end of the month.
Carmel remains the top-ranked team among IHSAA participants, checking in at No. 2 in this week's POWERADE state rankings. The Greyhounds will take on No. 4 Elkhart Memorial in the Class 4A semifinals.
