Flower Mound Marcus, South Oak Cliff move into Top 25 in boys state basketball rankings
The new rankings from Texas Association of Basketball Coaches are out, and a few new teams from the Dallas/Fort Worth area are getting consideration in the state poll.
Flower Mound Marcus (17-2) moves into the rankings at No. 19, one of 10 D/FW teams in the top 25. Six of the top eight in Class 5A are area schools: No. 2 South Grand Prairie, No. 3 DeSoto, No. 5 Justin Northwest, No. 6 Euless Trinity, No. 7 Plano West and No. 8 Lewisville.
In Class 4A, South Oak Cliff - fresh off its win over Kimball - breaks back into the Top 25, at No. 20. Fort Worth Dunbar and Lancaster remain the top-ranked teams in Regions I and II. Also, Madison and Plano Prestonwood both stay atop the Class 3A and large private school rankings, respectively.
