(Last week's ranking in parentheses, NR = previously unranked. Records through Wednesday's games)

1. LaPorte (1) 16-1

The Slicers will have been off the competitive court for 10 days when they take on John Glenn (12-2) today. Adding tough teams at the back end of their schedule, LaPorte finishes its season against Class 4A No. 4 Penn.

2. Lake Central (2) 17-2

The Indians will end their season a week before the start of the sectional schedule, knowing that they'll have the most successful record at the school in more than a decade. This team could not be more excited for the postseason.

3. West Side (3) 12-3

With three games left to play and a hope for makeup of the remaining two, the Cougars hope to be rolling into the playoffs. At this point, they already have fewer losses than the 2005 state runner-up team.

4. Merrillville (4) 12-5

The Pirates had hoped to weigh the bottom half of their schedule to be ready for the postseason, but Mother Nature had other opinions. Losing a game to weather cancellations just gives Merrillville more time to practice.

5. Bishop Noll (5) 17-2

The Warriors won their second straight Greater South Shore Conference Tournament title, and did so with ease. When it came to facing a Porter County Conference foe, the battle in the end turned in Noll's favor.

6. Crown Point (7) 11-6

The Bulldogs could end the season on a five-game winning streak, making them a tough team to face when the sectional opens. The wins aren't guaranteed, but still hold potential.

7. Highland (8) 12-5

Highland is one win away from securing its share of its first Northwest Crossroads Conference title since 2008. It's been a long road, and the Trojans aren't settling there.

8. Kankakee Valley (9) 11-5

The Kougars' winning streak came to a halt, but they're ready to start another one. This time, they hope it lasts longer than six games.

9. Morgan Township (6) 11-5

The Cherokees showed their skill in taking a lead against Bishop Noll, but an inability to play a complete game hurt them against both the Warriors and in the PCC Tournament against South Central.

10. South Central (NR) 10-6

Speaking of the Satellites, South Central captured its first-ever PCC Tournament title to work its way into the Top 10. After starting 3-6, S.C. has turned its season around.

On the bubble: Hobart (10-7), Washington Township (12-4), Whiting (10-6), Kouts (10-7), Portage (8-9), Griffith (8-7), Chesterton (8-9), Valparaiso (8-9).
