POWERADE hoops rankings: Battle in CMass

January, 24, 2012
The biggest game of the last week took place in Worcester on Friday night, as rivals St. Peter-Marian and Holy Name met for the second time this season. Holy Name had won the first meeting by a single point, but St. Peter-Marian got its revenge this time around, storming back from an 18-point deficit in the second half to force overtime before coming away with an 85-83 victory.

On the strength of that win, SPM jumps from No. 9 to No. 6 in this week's POWERADE state rankings, while Holy Name drops from No. 7 to No. 9.
