(1-17-17) Lots of quality boys HS boys basketball teams playing their best after the MLK tournament weekend.

The #1 Private school is Sierra Canyon, Nathan Hale remains the top rated Public school, MaxPreps Top 25 and USA Top 25 team, while the new #1  Independent school  is IMG Academy,  the move came after last week’s #1 La Lumiere lost to Sierra Canyon 76-74.

Heading into the second half of the season, Nathan Hale will finish their season playing only schools from Washington, which should be an advantage for them in winning a possible National title.

(first # is Private or Public ranking, second # is the ranking each school has in this week’s MaxPreps Top 25, the third # is last week’s ranking)MaxPreps will run separate high school boys basketball rankings for teams that compete for state championships as part of recognized governing body (High School Top 25) and those that do not (Independent Top 10).
