If I am not mistaken that the (#) besides the team means first place votes, how the heck does Oak Ridge get 4 votes. I understand homers exist but geez all 15 of those votes should've belonged to East.

I'm a Humboldt alum, but not sure how W.E.B. Dubois is not ranked!  The number of points they're putting up in 32 minutes is crazy!  Hadn't seen them play, but apparently they can score!

Im almost certain Crockett Co in AA is undefeated?

Yup, must've switched the 5 and 0. Should be 15-0, not 10-5.

It's the AP poll. What do you expect?

Tony you are probably correct but  I see things a tad differently. Oak Ridge has performed very well even with injuries and absences. Several players are much improved from last season and the team is tight with one another. Of course, East is the beast but even they could experience injuries, cold shooting, lack of intensity on a certain night.

 

It won't be long and the tournaments will start and all the guessing will be done away with. Best of luck to East and I hope they don't suffer any injuries. A team wide mild cause of running noses will be just fine  however.   ^_^

A few injuries and a cold shooting night is the only way OR beats East.

Crazier things have happened. Anything is possible in HS sports, especially basketball. With EJ Bush out for the rest of the year our chances at even getting lucky went way down, but I would give us 1 in a million shot of upsetting a team like East. But, as Jim Carey said in Dumb and Dumber....1 in a million? "So, you're saying there's a chance??!!"
