McCluer and Vianney continued their undefeated starts to the season, but another team is making noise with an unblemished start: Webster Groves.
The Statesmen were supposed to be in rebuilding mode this year, but instead they have shot up to No. 4 in the rankings behind the trio of Demetrius Robinson (15.4 ppg), Peter Fairbanks (14.6 ppg) and Rayshawn Simmons (13.0 ppg). They will start the new year off with a major test against 6-1 Marquette.
