After games ending Sunday, Feb. 12
There's a new No. 1 in Minnesota, and it might not be a team you'd expect. The team that knocked Eastview from its perch isn't Benilde-St. Margaret's, which was the state's No. 2 team in the POWERADE Minnesota Weekly Rankings. It's not Hopkins, which has spent time at No. 1 and was recently at No. 3. Nope, the state's top team is Lakeville North, which vaulted up three spots to claim top honors after edging Eastview in a thrilling 57-56 victory last week. Not much else changed for the state's top teams, but you won't find a soft spot among the group; all of these teams are proving they're ready for the postseason.
1. Lakeville North (19-1) Last week: No. 4
2. Eastview (19-1) Last week: No. 1
3. Benilde-St. Margaret's (19-1) Last week: No. 2
