(1-29-23) #1 Ben Davis (22-0) held on to the IBCA Boys Basketball #1 poll spot…but it didn’t come easy as they survived #9 Carmel (11-6) 46-45 in a mid-week standing room only match-up. The Giants again picked up all 20 1st place votes.

Penn (16-1) and Center Grove (16-1) are at #2 and #3.

New Palestine at #8 is the only undefeated team in the Top 20 at 15-0.

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