We updated our statewide MIAA Top 25 girls basketball poll, and while there is little movement up to, we've some some new faces at the bottom.
Andover remains firm at No. 1, a spot it has held since the end of last season, while Reading remains at No. 2 following two more blowout wins over Middlesex League opponents. Archbishop Williams and Arlington Catholic flip-flop at the Nos. 3 and 4 spots, after the Bishops handed AC a 21-point loss, while Holyoke remains at No. 5.
Amherst moves back into the Top 10 following its win over West Springfield, while Bishop Feehan falls out of the Top 10 following the Shamrocks' loss to defending Eastern Athletic Conference champ Coyle-Cassidy. Also of note, Billerica moves up nine spots to No. 11 following the Indians' surprising 72-59 win over Merrimack Valley juggernaut Central Catholic.
At the bottom, we have five new teams making their season debuts: Franklin (21), Walpole (22), Marshfield (23), Bedford (10-2) and last year's Division 3 runner-up, Western Mass. powerhouse Lee (25).
