Borah shared the top spot last week with Centennial. But in the final boys basketball state media poll of the season, the Lions sit alone in first place, marking the sixth straight week they’ve either earned the No. 1 ranking outright or shared it.

Centennial dropped back to second as the 5A District Three tournament started Tuesday. Rocky Mountain also rejoined the 5A poll at No. 4.

The only other moves involving Treasure Valley teams in all the other classifications includes Weiser (3A) sliding up from No. 4 to No. 3, and Cascade (1A Division II) moving from a tie for fifth to alone in fifth place.
