Week Fifteen: The final week of the regular has come and gone. We take a look back at week 15.
Week Sixteen: Top-25 Ranking
The Clovis Wildcats stay as the number one team in New Mexico after going 2-0 last week improving to 19-6, 4-0 District 4-5A.
The Wildcats won the difficult District 4-5A regular season championship and also won their 8th straight game. The Wildcats will be a favorite for a top seed in March.
Several teams fell this week and the two noticeable are the Las Cruces Bulldawgs (No. 11) and the Deming Wildcats (No. 25). Also, falling completely out of the Top-25 are the Alamogordo Tigers and the Manzano Monarchs.
After spending a few weeks on the outside looking in is the Santa Teresa Desert Warriors who come in as the No. 24 team after winning the District 3-4A championship.
NEXT IN LINE

All-Week 15 Team: Starting Five
Grine: Bleacher Review
What a fun week that followed suit to a week of unknowns. Several teams moved up and down.
It is crazy to think that the final week of the regular has come and gone. It seems just like yesterday that the season started and teams were fighting for their spot on the basketball season.
Tuesday: Eldorado vs. La Cueva: First of all, I don't know if I am old or getting older but I didn't know what the harlem shake until three days after the Eldorado Eagles student crowd did a GREAT job of doing it. It took someone to point it out that it was the harlem shake. My vote for Student Section of the year (or nominee) is the Eldorado Student Crowd -great job!! I was a little bummed that the security guards and I guess guy (black polo) said that I couldn't stand there and I had to move a couple times to find a section far away from the Student Section so I couldn't get more footage of them.
Friday: West Mesa vs. Atrisco Heritage It had been sometime since my return to West Mesa High School. Little useless fact I was actually a student there for three months. Decent and fun crowd for this contest - turn on the AC though (haha). I love when schools have a band playing - A+ for bands!
Senior Nights: Eldorado very nice video.
