Dunbar new No. 1 in hoop rankings


Northland's run at the top is over. The Vikings tumble from the rankings after falling to Reynoldsburg on a last-second layup in the district finals. Dunbar, which checks in at No. 31 in the POWERADE FAB 50, supplants Northland at the top. The Wolverines clipped Aiken by seven to win the district crown. New to the rankings are familiar faces Shaker Heights, Elida, Olentangy Liberty and St. Vincent-St. Mary. All four squads were ranked at some point this winter.

Here's a look at the top three teams:

1. Dunbar (24-0) — last week No. 1

2. Taft (20-4) — last week No. 3

3. Mentor (22-2) — last week No. 6
