Hamilton SE remains at No. 1 in the POWERADE state rankings, but it wasn't easy. The Royals had to put in some serious work in a 50-47 win over Fishers, and the schedule doesn't get much easier the rest of the way. Games with Bowman Academy (Feb. 3) and Pike (Feb. 14) remain, and both teams could prove to be significant hurdles.
