Lee's Summit West vaults into new Missouri hoops rankings


Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday

After a later start to its season, Lee's Summit West is off to type of start most expected from a team starring a trio like Shaq Harrison, Austin Panko and Nathan Jackson. The Titans easily handled a solid Raymore-Peculiar squad, 68-40, before holding off Rockhurst by two points on Monday.

The rest of the top five stood pat, as McCluer, Vianney, Soldan and Rock Bridge extended their undefeated starts. But watch out for Webster Groves, which is 3-0 and knocking on the top 10 door.

Here's how this week's rankings shake out (last week's rankings in parentheses):

1. McCluer (Florissant) 5-0 (1)

The Comets survived a scare before rallying for an overtime win against Hyde Park (Ill.). Demetrius Floyd scored 31 points in the victory.

2. Vianney (Kirkwood) 5-0 (2)

The Golden Griffins squeaked by CBC, 59-56.

3. Soldan (St. Louis) 4-0 (3)

The Tigers beat Morgan Park (Ill.) 59-44 in the Midwest Showdown Shootout.
