Benson rises to No. 3 in hoop rankings

West Linn and Westview have hovered around the top of the rankings all season. But after struggling in the last few weeks, both teams are in jeopardy of falling out the top 10. Westview has dropped two of its last four with No. 1 Jesuit coming up the schedule Feb. 15, while West Linn was crushed by 13 at home against Lake Oswego last week. The hottest team in the state is Benson, which moves to No. 3 and is clearly the class of the 5A squads. The Techmen are in the midst of a 17-game win streak.

Here's a look at the top three teams:

1. Jesuit (18-2) — last week No. 1

2. Lake Oswego (15-5) — last week No. 2

3. Benson (18-2) — last week No. 4
