By David Auguste

Tyree Gaiter and Najeeb Johnson each topped the 20-point mark as Cleveland Heights routed Shaker in the battle of the Heights last week. With the win, Cleveland bounces its rivals from the top 10 and takes over the No. 9 spot in this week's rankings. Things remained the same at the top, aside from Mentor and Moeller swapping spots. Northland (No. 30) and Dunbar (42) each moved up in the POWERADE FAB 50, while La Salle continues to rise in the Midwest Region. Pickerington North dropped a few spots and Whitmer moved up to No. 7 after a strong win.
