John Glenn Remains Undefeated, OCC Teams Climb D-I Rankings

John Glenn Remains Undefeated, OCC Teams Climb D-I Rankings

John Glenn's convincing 73-50 road win at rival Dover last week kept the Muskies perfect on the year at 17-0, but it wasn't enough to move any higher in the latest Associated Press boys basketball rankings. The MVL leaders remain 3rd in the Division II poll, while powerhouse St.Vincent-St. Mary (17-0) is 1st, followed by Franklin (18-1) who is 2nd. Greg Woodard's squad is one of only three teams still undefeated on the year. SVSM and 4th ranked Chillicothe Unioto are the only other remaining unbeatens. 

Dover (17-2) dropped from 6th to 11th in the new D-II poll after that home loss to John Glenn. 

In the Division II poll, Dublin Coffman paces four of teams from the Ohio Capital Conference that all moved up a spot this week. The Rocks (18-1) are now back up to 5th, while Westerville South (17-1) is 7th, Dublin Jerome (18-1) 8th, and Gahanna Lincoln (17-2) 9th. 

The 7th ranked Wildcats and 8th ranked Celtics face off this Friday, February 13 at Westerville South High School. Jerome won the first match-up between the teams back on January 16, 72-60.  

Listed below are the entire Associated Press rankings for the week of February 9th, 2015.
