21st Century vs. Lafayette CC at boys basketball semistate (copy)

21st Century's DeAndre Gholston is back for another run at state.

Kale Wilk, The Times

The Region is starting from the bottom. But will it end up on top?

We've got a little more than three months to ponder that question as The Associated Press released its first state boys basketball rankings of the 2017-18 season Tuesday afternoon.

Nary a Northwest Indiana team found itself in the top 10 of the Class 4A rankings, and just four area teams total had a number by its name — Griffith at No. 10 in 3A, Marquette Catholic and Andrean tied at No. 9 in 2A, and 21st Century at No. 6 in 1A.

Not at a lot of love for da Region. But that's why they play the games.
