Girls basketball poll: Feb. 6
By Matt Ehalt
Nazareth flexed its muscles this week as it put dominated Bishop Ford and Christ the King and showed that no team in New York City is on its level. There were also some upsets all around New York City. Let's check out the rest of the poll for this week.
1. Nazareth (18-1)/(LW: 1): Nazareth went 3-0 with wins over Bishop Ford, Mary Louis and Nazareth. That's what you call a quality week.
2. Bishop Ford (16-3)/(LW: 2): Bishop Ford lost to Nazareth and Christ the King but salvaged the week with a win against an out-of-state foe.
3. Moore Catholic (16-3)/(LW: 4): Moore Catholic is quietly putting together one of the finest seasons in the city and it is now 16-3 after a pair of wins this weekend.
4. Molloy (13-6)/(LW: 4): Molloy rebounded this week for a pair of nice wins against St. Francis Prep and Mary Louis Academy.
5. Christ the King (7-10)/(LW: 6): CK had great wins against Bishop Loughlin and Bishop Fort but ended its week on a sour note as Nazareth blew them out.
6. South Shore (18-4)/(LW: 3): South Shore lost a tough game to Lincoln and needs to find its groove before the PSAL playoffs begin.
7. Murry Bergtraum (13-5)/(LW: 7): Bergtraum is clicking at the right time and had a quality win against Francis Lewis in league play.
8. Bishop Loughlin (8-0/(LW: 8): Loughlin lost to CK but was able to rebound to beat St. Francis Prep. Loughlin is another team that needs to get it together.
9. McKee/SI Tech (18-2)/(LW: 10): MSIT picked up another league win and is going to face Curtis this week in a battle for the division title.
10. Truman (17-6)/(LW: Unranked): Truman is now 17-6 and swept JFK with a win this past week, which puts the Lady Mustangs back in the poll.
