There was hardly any change in this week’s Alaska Association of Basketball Coaches rankings.

The entire boys poll remained the same from last week with West Anchorage grabbing the top spot.

West defeated No. 3 Dimond, 48-38, on Monday that pushed its record to 9-2.

Service (14-2) is ranked second, while Colony (9-3) is fourth and Bartlett (8-4) fifth.

West Valley won the Lady Lynx Prep Shootout and kept its top spot in the girls’ 4A rankings with a 15-0 record.

East Anchorage (10-1), Dimond (18-4), Colony (10-2) and Wasilla (13-5) rounded out this week’s top five.

Ketchikan (16-5) was replaced by Colony in the rankings — the only change in this week’s poll.

Barrow’s boys and girls top the 3A rankings.

The boys have a 19-3 record, while the girls are 7-7.
