La Salle vaults to No. 3 in Ohio basketball rankings

By David Auguste

La Salle held off Moeller by two points in a marquee matchup of GCL powers earlier this week. The win helped the squad grab the No. 16 spot in the Midwest Region Rankings and vault to No. 3 in the state rankings. The top two squads remain the same, with Northland and Dunbar holding down the top two spots, while Taft rides its seven-game streak to No. 4 and Moeller drops to No. 5. New to the mix is undefeated Olentangy Liberty, a squad holding foes to less than 50 points a contest.

Here's a look at the top three teams:
1. Northland (11-1) — last week No. 1
2. Dunbar (12-0) — last week No. 2
3. La Salle (12-1) — last week No. 4
