ESPN 25 Power Rankings: Week 12

ESPN RecruitingNation

After games of Nov. 10

A familiar face rejoins this week's ESPN 25 Power Rankings in No. 24 St. Ignatius (Cleveland). And it got back in thanks to help from the team that knocked it out two weeks ago.

On Oct. 27, St. Edward (Lakewood, Ohio) ended the Wildcats' bid for an undefeated season with a 20-13 win. But this past weekend, the then-No. 15 Eagles opened the door for St. Ignatius after losing to Mentor (Ohio) 63-56 in the Division I regional semifinals.

Camden County (Kingsland, Ga.) was the only other Power Rankings team that lost. But the Wildcats remain in the rankings at No. 25 because it was only a one-point setback and unlike St. Edward, its season will continue. Plus, Camden County had impressed all season long up until this past weekend.
