Gallery: Valparaiso at Lowell boys basketball
Kale Wilk, The Times

The Valparaiso boys basketball team continues to inch toward a state ranking. The Vikings just might have to wait another week to get there.

Valpo moved to 6-0 last Saturday with a dramatic 50-49 victory over Elkhart Memorial and will get an excellent opportunity to state their case Friday with a game at No. 10 Fort Wayne North. Win that, and the Region could have its first ranked Class 4A team of the season.

With the Vikings still on the outside looking in, the Region is back to two state-ranked teams in the Associated Press poll released Tuesday.

Both are in 1A, with unbeaten Washington Township coming in at No. 8 — its first ranking of the season — and 21st Century moving up to No. 7.
