The Homewood-Flossmoor girls basketball team remained the top Class 4A team in the latest Associated Press poll.

The Vikings totaled 10 first-place votes, 100 overall. Whitney Young is second with one first-place vote and 96 overall. Marian Catholic is ranked sixth.

In the Class 4A boys poll, Marian Catholic fell from No. 2 to No. 5 after its loss on Saturday to Stevenson. Stevenson moved from fifth to third. Curie is the top team.

Eagles' Kelly to have jersey retired: Marian Catholic will retire former football and basketball standout Dennis Kelly's jersey prior to Friday's boys basketball game against Marist.

Kelly, a second-year offensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles, is the fourth Spartan to have his NFL jersey number retired. He joins Mike Prior, John Holecek and Rodney Harrison. Along with a banner in the gym, Kelly will have a jersey and photo display in the gym lobby.

The Chicago Heights resident was also a three-year starter at Purdue who earned Academic All-Big Ten honors twice and was a Big Ten honorable mention pick.

Twice not as nice: Tuesday's Crete-Monee at Lemont boys basketball game was postponed for the second time due to weather.

The two originally were scheduled to play Jan. 7, but that game was postponed.

"I have never seen it where we missed this much school due to the cold," Crete coach Tom Cappel said. "Snow, yes, but not just because of the cold. We haven't practiced since last week."

He said he would like to have the game rescheduled again if possible.
