With their highest ranking in NMPreps.com Top-25 history the St. Pius X Sartans move up to the No. 2 spot. The Sartans won the District 5-4A regular season title. Swapping spots and moving to the No. 3 is the Eldorado Eagles who dropped one game last week. Both from District 2-5A is No. 4 Sandia and No. 5 La Cueva.


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.


Hope Christian stays one spot out of the Top-25 and could find themselves back in the rankings by seasons end. Also, placing themselves on the radar are Rio Rancho, Moriarty and St. Mike's

    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.

    Game Coverage

    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!
