Oak Hill (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) won the DICK’S High School Nationals title in New York last week to move into the No. 2 spot in the season-ending Super 25 boys basketball rankings.

The Warriors’ impressive 3-0 run in the tournament wasn’t enough to surpass unbeaten Chino Hills (Calif.), as the No. 1 team in the country. Chino Hills, led by American Family Insurance ALL-USA Player of the Year Lonzo Ball, finished 35-0 and tied a state record with 18 games of 100 points or more.

Oak Hill did move up a spot as Braxton Key had 20 points and nine rebounds in a 62-60 overtime defeat of then-No. 11 La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) in the DICK’S championship game. In Oak Hill’s other tournament wins, Lindell Wigginton had 12 points in a 47-46 defeat of then-No. 13 Miller Grove (Lithonia, Ga.) in the semifinals and Khadim Sy had 13 points and 10 rebounds in an 81-64 defeat of then-No. 14 Wasatch Academy (Mount Pleasant, Utah) in a quarterfinal.

The DICK’S also gave a few other Super 25 teams a boost, most notably La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) and Miller Grove (Lithonia, Ga.). La Lumiere moved up from No. 11 to No. 3. In addition to its narrow championship loss, the Lakers’ Brian Bowen had 16 points and nine rebounds in a 55-47 defeat of then-No. 2 Montverde Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) in the semifinals and Bowen had 23 points in a 60-59 defeat of then-No. 9 St. Benedict’s Prep (Newark) in the quarterfinals.

Miller Grove climbed five spots to No. 8. Alterique Gilbert had 20 points in a 67-65 defeat of then-No. 9 Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) in a Dick’s Nationals quarterfinal. The Wolverines’ run ended with a 47-46 loss in the semifinals to Montverde Academy, which finished the season at No. 5.
