New basketball rankings are out for the boys.  For 1A and 2A it is their final polls of the season.


Basketball Tuesday night saw the newly #1 ranked Torrington boys crushed at Scottsbluff, NE 79 to 34. While they were getting beat outside of the state borders,  The Blazers would get 12 of the 18 #1 votes in 3A this week to take that top spot after clinching the #1 seed in the East last weekend. Powell took five top votes and rank 2nd. Star Valley got a vote and ranks third. Lander and Buffalo round out the 3A top five.

4A has Evanston still at #1, but barely. The Red Devils took 7 top votes and outscored #2 Gillette 129 to 126 this week. East moves into third pushing Sheridan to fourth. Natrona makes the polls for the first time this year as the Mustangs got their second win over Riverton, puts them fifth.

The big rematch in 4A has #2 Gillette at #4 Sheridan on Friday, for the top seed in the 4A East.

The Final 1A and 2A boys basketball polls of the season are now available. Lovell and unbeaten Little Snake River take top seeds into the regional weekend. In 1A,  The Rattlers are a unanimous choice for #1 followed by Burlington who took all of the #2 votes. Midwest and Ten Sleep remain 3 and 4 while the Lingle-Ft. Laramie Doggers make a late debut on the polls at #5 this week.

In 2A, the top three ranked teams will meet in Riverton. Lovell is #1 with Wyoming Indian now #2 after having beaten Wind River in Pavillion. The Cougars drop to third.  They, though, have the #1 seed from the south and force the Chiefs to potentially play the Bulldogs in the semi finals. Burns and Moorcroft round out the top five.
