Week Thirteen: Living up to the theme of the 2012-2013 basketball season week thirteen was one of upsets and shockers.
Week Fifteen: Top-25 Ranking
For the second consecutive week we have a new number one team heading into week fifteen of the basketball season. It is also the last Top-25 of the regular season.
The Wildcats are currently riding a 6-game winning streak and went 2-0 last week. The Wildcats also move into first place of District 4-5A and now sit at (17-6, 2-0).
For the first time no team fell out of the rankings. The biggest drop in rank for a team was the Sandia Matadors falling from number one in Week 14 to number six this week. Also, falling in the rankings was Las Cruces going from 2 down to number 8.
NEXT IN LINE
Hope Christian spends another week outside the Top-25 but they had a huge week and could move in the rankings in the coming weeks. Santa Teresa is back on the radar after thrashing the Deming Wildcats.
Prime Time Player: DJ Blackmon
Clovis/Senior/Wing-Guard: DJ Blackmon moved up in the all-time scoring charts for Clovis High School. With 1,345 career points Blackmon is the number four on the list that includes Bubba Jennings who is being talked about in the Number One player to ever play in New Mexico.
All-Week 14 Team: Starting Five
Grine: Bleacher Review
Movement, Bracket talk and plenty of e-mails as the heat turns up in New Mexico.
Can you believe that week 15 of the season is here and the final week of the regular season. The bracket has shaped up and most teams will use this last week to make a bid for the State Tournament.
It was a busy week for me but I still had the chance to see a couple of games. The main one came during the Sandia Prep game and this is a place you need to watch out if you are a media guy. The security guard doesn't like you -joke of course. He tried to constantly make me move to the bleachers and it was also a special game as one of my boys was my assistant taking in the Hope Christian - Sandia Prep game.

Team of the Week: West Mesa
I know that they won this award last week but it's only fitting that the Mustangs take home the award again as the continue to have a successful 2013 portion of the basketball season.

Shiprock Chieftains : The Chieftains have continued to run the table in their District winning by large margins. The Chieftains stay ranked as the number one team in 3A (No. 24 NMPreps.com Top 25).
Capital Jaguars: Capital has been hot and cold at moments in 2013 but they answered many questions as they move out of the 3-way tie for first place in District 2-4A by beating both teams that were tied with them - Espanola Valley and Capital.
Eldorado Eagles: We have called the Eagles out and questioned their power but the 5A defending state champions are looking like champs once again. They continue to dominate in District 2-5A.
