Leap frogging their way up to No. 2 is the Eldorado Eagles who is 16-6, 4-0 in District 4-5A. The Eagles are proving their dominance through District play. At, No. 3 is the St. Pius X Sartans who at 19-4 won their 10th consecutive game. No. 4 is La Cueva and No. 5 is Hobbs High School, both teams move up after having going 2-0 last week.


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.


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.

    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.

    Game Coverage

    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.


    Give him a raise: Schonn Schroer, West Mesa
    Hot seat a little cooler Wally Salata, Rio Rancho
    Coach who earned his check: Mike Smith, Hobbs
    I see you: Texico
    Darn good see you in March: Dexter
    I want to watch: Los Lunas
    Miles Traveled: Cibola and Sandia Prep
    Student Section: Volcano Vista student crowd (@ Cibola)

    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.

    More Teams Getting Love:

    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.
