POWERADE hoops rankings: Week 16

With the IHSAA state tournament complete, the POWERADE state rankings are almost finalized. Once No. 1 La Lumiere finishes up its season at the NHSI tournament this week, we'll be able to lock in the final version of the rankings.

Carmel did everything it could to make a case for the top spot by winning the Class 4A state championship. The Greyhounds beat Pike, 80-67, in the title game to finish the season with a 23-4 record. A poor showing by La Lumiere at NHSI could leave the door open for Carmel to jump to No. 1 in the final rankings next week.
