Following wins over Madison College Prep and Alton last week, the East St. Louis Flyers have taken over the No. 1 spot in the weekly Belleville News-Democrat Boys Basketball rankings.
The Flyers (12-5) are a spotless 7-0 in Southwestern Conference play and jumped ahead of last week’s No. 1 team, Alton (14-3). Nashville (17-1) grabbed all seven first-place votes in the BND Small-School rankings, followed by Central (14-3) and Mater Dei (12-6).
Records are before Monday’s games.
