CEDAR RAPIDS — It was a short week of boys’ basketball, thus there was not much movement in The Gazette’s boys’ basketball rankings.

In fact, it is the same 10 teams ranked in Class 1A and 2A, with the exact order in 2A. Camanche (10-0) is your No. 1 team, followed by North Linn (9-0), Treynor (10-0), Western Christian (6-2) and South Hamilton (10-1).

Grand View Christian (9-1) remains a rock-solid first in 1A, with the rest of the top five being Ankeny Christian (9-0), Montezuma (11-0), New London (10-0) and Ar-We-Va (10-0).

North Scott and Maquoketa are your No. 1 clubs in Class 4A and 3A, respectively. In 4A, Cedar Rapids Prairie and Sioux City West dropped out of the top 10, with West Des Moines Valley and Dubuque Senior jumping in.

Class 3A remains the most jumbled class, with Maquoketa and No. 3 Clear Lake (both 10-0) the lone unbeatens. West Delaware lost twice and fell out of the rankings, with Adel ADM climbing into the top 10.
