POWERADE hoops rankings: Welcome, new guys

The Massachusetts POWERADE state rankings have been volatile so far this season, and this week's edition is no exception. Four teams dropped out of the top 10, while several others lost games but managed to hold onto a spot in the rankings. One team, Wilbraham & Monson, even found a way to move up despite losing a game.

St. Mark's holds on to the No. 1 spot after a convincing win over Friends' Central (Pa.) at the Hoophall Classic, and Northfield-Mt. Hermon remains solidly locked into the No. 2 spot after beating a solid St. Thomas More (Conn.) team.

Catholic Memorial is the highest-ranked of the four new teams in this week's rankings, as the Knights check in at No. 5 after upset wins over BC High and St. John's Prep.
