High School Boys Basketball: What area teams are ranked in state poll?


Unbeaten Fort Loramie was ranked No. 1 in the first Division IV boys high school basketball state poll that was released by the Associated Press on Monday.

Trotwood-Madison (6-0) drew more D-II first-place votes than any team in the state but ranked second. The Rams had five first-place votes to just two for top-ranked Upper Sandusky, which edged Trotwood 87-84 in total points. No. 3 Ottawa-Glandorf also outdrew Upper Sandusky with three first-place votes and wasn’t far behind with 82 points.

Wayne (8-2) was the only area team to break into the D-I top 10, placing sixth. The Warriors were upset at Northmont 81-80 in overtime last Friday. Northmont (9-2) was No. 17.

Versailles (9-1) was No. 7 in D-III and Brookville (9-0) No. 10. Franklin (8-1) will play at Valley View in a battle of Southwestern Buckeye League powers on Friday.

Fort Loramie (8-1) received seven first-place votes and was No. 1 in D-IV. Midwest Athletic Conference rival Fort Recovery (6-1) was No. 10.
