POWERADE Minnesota Hoops Rankings: Week 8

After games ending Sunday, Feb. 5

The regular season is drawing closer to an end, and what do we know so far? Top teams Eastview and Benilde-St. Margaret's escaped close games with victories to stay ahead of the pack, while Hopkins and Lakeville North each earned statement wins over rivals (none bigger than the Royals handing Wayzata its first loss of the season). And both Redwood Valley and Spring Lake Park couldn't keep pace, opening the door for new squads Washburng and Braham to try to hold down the final slots. Late in the season, it's anybody's to win or lose as the playoffs approach.

1. Eastview (18-0) Last week: No. 1

2. Benilde-St. Margaret's (17-1) Last week: No. 2

3. Hopkins (17-1) Last week: No. 3
