espnW 25 Power Rankings: Week 15

While many teams in the espnW 25 Power Rankings have closed the book on their seasons, others are still going strong. And fighting for position.

No. 8 Myers Park won its first North Carolina state championship this past weekend behind a monster game from Rydeiah Rogers, who had 25 points, 20 rebounds and 4 blocks in a 61-46 win over Southeast Raleigh in the title game.

Things are still heating up in California. A clash of top-10 powers is scheduled for Tuesday night when No. 5 Mater Dei plays No. 10 Long Beach Poly in a CIF State Open Division Southern Regional semifinal. Mater Dei has one win over the Jackrabbits already this season, but that was back at the Nike Tournament of Champions in December. Another big California game on Tuesday features No. 2 Windward against No. 19 Etiwanda.

No. 19 St. Mary's saw its season come to an end at the hands of Miramonte and 31-point outburst from sophomore Sabrina Ionescu.
