Only two big games matched up teams in the Top 20 this week, meaning little change in the rankings.
St. Mary's completed its season sweep of Arlington Catholic with a 58-48, victory on Friday, moving the Spartans up one spot to No.15, while the Cougars drop to No.16.
Andover also suffered a drop to No.17 after losing a Merrimack Valley Conference match to No.4 Billerica.
This may come as a surprise to many, but Newton North jumped to No.13 in this week's poll. No, the Tigers did not beat any team in particular and No.19 Duxbury and No. 18 Ipswich did not lose this week. We just feel that Newton North is better than a 19th-ranked team.
The Tigers, winners of 13 straight games, will be right there in the tournament, and as long as they continue to win games they will continue to climb to the top 10.
