NEWS: By the end of this week, Tennessee boys will be finished and Illinois girls will be down to a handful of teams.
Those two states combined have 11 teams in the boys and girls top 12 rankings this week. At least half of them have to lose given upcoming matchups, and the fallout could be rather significant. While the winners will be rewarded with lofty national rankings, the benefit could really could go to the teams already finished -- teams currently ranked between 11-50, who could see a major bump up in the rankings next week.
BIG MOVERS: BOYS: Stillwater (Okla.). A combination of other teams losing and a slight reshuffling of the Oklahoma rankings allowed Stillwater, whose only losses were to state champion Brown Arrow, to move up eight spots to No. 36. ... GIRLS: Charlotte Latin (Charlotte, N.C.). The preseason Top 25 team worked its way back into the Top 25 at No. 18 this week by avenging its only loss and winning a North Carolina Independent School state title. That is three in a row for this perennial powerhouse and eight in the last 10 years.
NEWCOMERS: BOYS: No. 33 Rogers (Ark.), No. 38 Tulsa Union (Tulsa, Okla.), No. 48 Central Valley (Spokane Valley, Wash.), No. 49 Herriman (Utah) and No. 50 Blacksburg (Va.). ... GIRLS: No. 29 Brighton (Mich.), No. 30 Charlotte Catholic (Charlotte, N.C.), No. 32 Hoggard (Wilmington, N.C.), No. 36 Yorktown (Arlington, Va.), No. 38 Unity Christian (Hudsonville, Mich.), No. 40 Crystal Lake South (Crystal Lake, Ill.), No. 46 Quincy Notre Dame (Quincy, Ill.), No. 47 Arapahoe (Centennial, Colo.), No. 48 Livonia Stevenson (Livonia, Mich.) and No. 49 Weddington (Matthews, N.C.)
