After games ending Saturday, Jan. 7
This week, littered on the outside looking in are teams with high expectations that have failed to get off to the kind of starts necessary to stay in the top 10 of our POWERADE Michigan Weekly Rankings. It's tough to stay on top, which is why teams like Sexton and Consortium Prep and Pershing have been pleasant surprises. It's expectation mixed with success. But these teams can't get complacent; not when talented squads such as Clarkston, Detroit King and Beecher are hot on their heels.
1. Sexton (6-0) Last week: No. 1
2. Consortium Prep (6-0) Last week: No. 2
3. Pershing (7-0) Last week: No. 3
