After games ending Saturday, April 21
With just a handful of games remaining until the postseason begins, we aren't making any changes to the POWERADE Arizona Weekly Rankings this week. Quite frankly, we didn't need to. It looks like the state's top teams are finely tuned and ready for the state tournament to begin. Good timing; the tourney begins in earnest in just a few days. Liberty is our new top team, but the Lions will have plenty of competition in Division II. Brophy Prep looks dangerous in Division I, but there's a host of teams hoping to have a say in the matter. As the playoffs get going, check back for updates to see how these teams fare in the run to the state crown.
1. Liberty (17-3) Last week: No. 7
2. Sunrise Mountain (22-5) Last week: No. 1
3. Sunnyslope (21-4-1) Last week: No. 2
