A couple of Logan County schools occupy two of the number one spots in the West Virginia Boys Basketball Coaches Poll released Sunday.
For the fourth straight week, Logan holds down the top spot in Class AAA while Man took advantage of Greater Beckley Christian’s loss to Calvary Baptist Academy to move from a third-place tie last week to the top spot in Class A.
The Hillbillies were dominant in wins over Tolsia (90-34), Richwood (106-48) and Parkersburg Catholic (101-42) last week to claim the top spot despite only receiving three of 15 first-place votes from the coaches. Greater Beckley Christian received twelve first-place votes and dropped to second in the poll. James Monroe falls from second to third while Tug Valley, who was tied with Man for third last week, is fourth and Greenbrier West fifth in Class A.
Logan remained atop the Class AAA poll after victories over Wayne (86-55) and Class AAAA Woodrow Wilson (64-46). The Wildcats received eight first-place votes, earning all but two first-place votes. Fairmont Senior earned the other two first-place votes and moved to second place replacing Shady Spring, who drops to third. Winfield and Wheeling Central remained fourth and fifth in the Class AAA poll. Ripley ninth and Berkeley Springs, who is tied for 10th with Nitro, make their debuts in the poll while Grafton, who was tied for eighth last week, falls out of the top 10.
Chapmanville, who did not play last week due to COVID regulations, dropped from fourth to sixth in the Class AA poll. Poca maintained its firm grip on the top spot in Class AA after receiving nine first-place votes. Bluefield earned the other first-place vote and is ranked second with St. Marys third. Williamstown moved from fifth to fourth and Ravenswood from sixth to fifth in Class AA. The Miners of Mingo Central remain ninth and despite a 2-6 record, Buffalo debuts at 10th this week replacing Wyoming East.
In Class AAAA, Morgantown continues to hold the top spot. The Mohigans received seven first-place votes with George Washington receiving three first-place votes and Parkersburg South one to remain second and third in the AAAA poll. Jefferson remains fourth and South Charleston jumps two spots to round out the top five.
