CIML glued together in latest boys' basketball AP poll

By

Entering the final week of the regular season for Class 4-A and 3-A in Iowa high school boys’ basketball, central Iowa schools shuffled in the weekly Associated Press poll.

The CIML kept five teams in the 4-A Top 10 as Ames replaced Dowling Catholic at No. 10. Hoover dropped one spot to No. 4 after picking up its first loss of the season last Tuesday.

Pella tied Williamsburg for No. 1 in 3-A after taking control of the top spot in last week’s poll. The Raiders had seven first-place votes to Pella’s five, despite the Dutch scoring 97 and 95 points in two conference victories.

New Hampton became the final No. 1 team in 2-A as this week marked the final regular-season poll in 2-A and 1-A. District playoff games begin Monday night. Gladbrook-Reinbeck remained No. 1 in 1-A with 13 of a possible 14 first-place votes.
