CEDAR RAPIDS — Another week, another new No. 1 team in Class 3A.

This time, the wheel spun and stopped on Norwalk, which replaces Carroll atop the class in the latest Associated Press Iowa boys’ basketball poll.

Carroll (16-3) lost twice last week, the second week in a row the top-ranked 3A team dropped two games. It happened to Marion two weeks ago.

Norwalk (16-3) received eight of the 11 first-place votes. Mount Vernon (18-2) got two and moved into second in the 3A poll, with Davenport Assumption (15-4) third after also picking up a first-place vote.

Marion is seventh.

This is the final poll for Class 1A and Class 2A, which began district play Monday night. Your final No. 1 teams are Treynor (21-1) in 2A and Easton Valley (21-0) in 1A.

North Linn (21-0) and Van Meter (20-0) are tied for second in 2A, with Monticello (18-2) moving all the way from eighth to fourth after a win last week over Camanche. The Indians (18-3) slipped from fifth to sixth.

Ankeny Centennial (19-1) remains on top of Class 4A, with Waterloo West and North Scott tied for second. Iowa City West (17-2) comes in at No. 5.

Below are the entire rankings, with first-place votes in parentheses. Also included are team record, poll points and last week’s position.

There will be one final 3A and 4A poll next week.
