1. Lake Central (1) 9-1

T'was the Friday before Christmas and all through the region, the Indians were winning, because this is their season. Past banners all hung in the gymnasium with care, with "2014" waiting to be added with flare.

2. West Side (2) 6-1

The Cougars were nestled under the basket, pulling down rebounds like swinging a hatchet. With a game on the line and Rod in a cap, hey there's no time now for a long winter's nap.

3. LaPorte (4) 7-0

When out in the DAC there arose quite the clatter, these Slicers are showing they are what matters. Hitting 3s on all shots with reckless abandon, look away too long and they'll leave defenders stranded.

4. Lowell (5) 7-0

While the moon shines on the new-fallen snow, the Red Devils linger in a gym far below. Their wondering eyes have no fear, its the rest of the conference that seems like open-eyed reindeer.

5. Merrillville (3) 5-3

Don't be fooled by the Pirates, still lively and quick; experience they're gaining, though it best be quick. A week away from more tests and Merrillville will stand, in places they'd rather call no man's land.

6. Bishop Noll (7) 9-2

And then with a twinkling, the Warriors are proof that a well-toughened schedule is not just a spoof. With a team in full force and talent to spare, Noll is a few wins away from being there.

7. Morgan Twp. (8) 7-3

Dressed in all green, from their heads to their toes; the Cherokees are well-oiled, everyone should know. Their stars are aligned to be top of the heap, wins are not easy, they don't come cheap.

8. Crown Point (9) 6-1

The Bulldogs' eyes twinkle, their wins make them merry; how can you argue with unis colored cherry? Their defense shows how stars can glow, they're no where near ready to melt with the snow.

9. Highland (10) 6-2

They speak nary a word, let basketball do the talking; the Trojans are happy to be a little bit shocking. With a wink of their eyes and a twist of their heads, they happily give opponents something to dread.

10. Hobart (6) 6-2

As they spring through their season, don't give a low whistle; Hobart's not ready for an early dismissal. Here we've come to an end of the rhyming top 10, Happy Holidays to all, until we meet again.

On the bubble: Portage (6-4), Griffith (6-3), Washington Township (5-2), Whiting (5-2), Kankakee Valley (4-4), Andrean (4-4), Kouts (5-3), Chesterton (5-3).
