Unbeaten Nathan Hale (Seattle), fresh off a defeat of then-No. 7 Oak Hill (Mouth of Wilson, Va.), vaulted from No. 8 to No. 1 in the Super 25 boys basketball rankings.

The Raiders (14-0) were the beneficiaries of Sierra Canyon’s defeat of then-No. 1 La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) in the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. Nathan Hale is the only team to defeat Sierra Canyon, now the No. 2 team.
