The season is in its infancy, but three teams are still among the nation's best hoops programs after the first week of the POWERADE FAB 50.
Chester, which opened the season at No. 17, hadn't budged after the first week of rankings. The Clippers open their season tomorrow against Coatesville. Neumann-Goretti, which was No. 21 during the preseason, is now at No. 20 after other teams moved around. The Saints have also yet to play a game. Friends' Central, which started the year at No. 23, is now No. 21 after winning its first game of the season.
In the POWERADE East Regional Rankings, Chester is No. 5, Neumann-Goretti is No. 7 and Friends' Central is No. 8. Constitution, which has yet to play a game this season, is No. 18 in the region.
Because most teams have yet to open their seasons or have played few games, we'll start our POWERADE Pennsylvania Weekly Rankings on Wednesday, Dec. 14.
