After games on Sunday, March 4.

A roller-coaster season for Christ the King ended much earlier than most expected, as the Royals fell to Mount St. Michael in the CHSAA Class AA quarterfinals. The loss ended a run of six straight trips to the intersectional final as well as the storied career of all-time leading scorer Omar Calhoun.

Mount St. Michael, which was led by 30 points from Malik Gill, will look to continue its run against Holy Cross in the semifinals, with the winner facing either Cardinal Hayes or St. Raymond.

The final four in the PSAL Class AA bracket is just as intriguing, with the favorite Jefferson going up against a streaking Wings Academy, while Lincoln and Boys & Girls will once again renew their rivalry.

Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):

1. Mount Vernon 20-2 (1)
Knights won their seventh straight Section 1 Class AA championship with a rout of Mahopac. After a bye, the Knights will face either Binghamton or Middletown in Friday's regional finals.

2. Jefferson (Brooklyn) 24-6 (2)
Thaddeus Hall dropped 25 points to lead the Orange Wave past Wadleigh. Next up: Wings Academy in the PSAL Class AA semifinals on Saturday.

3. Boys & Girls (Brooklyn) 22-6 (3)
Thaddeus Hall dropped 25 points to lead the Orange Wave past Wadleigh. Next up: Wings Academy in the PSAL Class AA semifinals on Saturday.
