One month into the season the 5A boys basketball state rankings are in flux again.

A week after falling out of the top spot, Post Falls returns to the top. But it remains tied with Borah, which is atop the 5A state media poll for the first time this season.

Preston remains the heavy favorite in 4A. But the rest of the Top 5 saw a reshuffle in the latest state media poll, released Tuesday evening.
