First Boys Basketball Rankings of 2013

The first rankings for the new year are out and posted.

While they are the first rankings of the new year, they aren’t that much different than the final poll of 2012.

4A sees the most change. Two new teams make their debut on the charts. Sheridan is fourth after going 1-2 at Riverton. They beat Evanston by 19, but, lost to Riverton, now #2, and Kelly Walsh who ranks #5. KW beat Sheridan 54 to 51 on Friday at Riverton. Gillette remains #1 with all but 1 first place vote. Riverton is now two after the Wolverines beat Laramie last Friday. The Plainsmen are now third. Evanston and Natrona are no longer part of the top five. Cheyenne South received four votes this week. The Bison will have their shot at moving up when they play at #5 Kelly Walsh this weekend, a team that the Bison beat last season. 4A teams won’t play in conference till next weekend.

1  Gillette (17)   2  Riverton (1)    3 Laramie    4  Sheridan    5  Kelly Walsh

3A, 2A, and 1A merely re-arrange their top five from 2012.

Record wise, there isn’t a lot of separation in 3A. Star Valley though, continues to reign over the class this week. The Braves pulled 17 of the 20 top ballots. Buffalo got the other three and rank 2nd. Wheatland moves from fourth to third while Rawlins goes from fifth to fourth. Lyman drops to fifth following their home loss to Powell. This Friday has #3 Wheatland at #2 Buffalo. The #2 Bison then make a road trip to #4 Rawlins on Saturday.

Burlington is a unanimous #1 in 1A despite getting their toughest game of the season by #2 Ten Sleep. The Pioneers are a solid second with Little Snake River third. Encampment moves to fourth pushing Cokeville to fifth. All top five ranked teams in 1A come from the West conference. Unranked Meeteetse will have the hardest weekend schedule…at #1 Burlington, then home vs. #2 Ten Sleep.
