Gallery: Valparaiso at Lowell boys basketball

If one were to extend the term "ranked" into "others receiving votes" territory, the Region would be awash in ranked boys basketball teams right now.

Alas, there are standards in this world — or so I'm told — and one of them is that in order to be "ranked" in the state's Associated Press poll, you've got to have a number and period in front of your name.

Valparaiso, Hammond, Andrean and Covenant Christian fell just short of that criterion in the latest AP poll released Tuesday afternoon. That leaves the area with two just ranked teams — unbeaten Washington Township at No. 6 in Class 1A and 21st Century at No. 9 in 1A.

Yes, the Region's still got some work to do.
