Two weeks into the season, a new team sits atop the 5A state boys basketball rankings — Boise.

The Braves are off to a 5-0 start and received enough votes from around the state to top the state media poll despite only receiving two first-place votes. Post Falls (four) and Rocky Mountain (three) each received more but finished behind Boise in the poll.

See the full rankings below.
