Benson, West Linn new to this week's basketball rankings

There are two new teams in this week's rankings; one is a surprise and the other you might expect. West Linn rebounded from a slow start to post wins in seven of their eight contests. That stretch of hot play earned the Lions the No. 9 spot in the rankings. Benson also has struggled at times this winter but regained its spot in the top 10. The Techman have a lot of swagger after beating Grant and hope to return to the Class 5A finals in March. The top five remains the same as Jesuit keeps the top spot after an undefeated week.

Here's a look at the top three teams:

1. Jesuit (11-1) — Last week No. 1

2. Westview (9-2) — Last week No. 2

3. Lake Oswego (10-2) — Last week No. 3
