Below are results of the IBCA girls’ basketball poll for Week 10 (Jan. 8) of the 2022-23 season.

    The IBCA poll is a “non-class” poll, where teams are voted to a Top 20 regardless of school classification.

    There are 20 panelists who vote for the poll — one voter each from the 16 regionals; three at-large voters (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3); and the committee chairman (Doug Springer of Northridge).

    This poll is released on Sundays throughout the 2022-23 Indiana high school girls’ basketball season. The final poll for the season will be on Jan. 29, the Sunday following the completion of regular-season games.

 IHSAA sectional games are scheduled Jan. 31-Feb. 4, 2023.
