Shelby moved up a spot to No. 4 in Division II and Buckeye Central slipped two spots to No. 4 in Division IV in the third Associated Press Ohio girls basketball poll of the season.

The Whippets (14-0 overall, 8-0 Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference) caught the attention of all by besting the Buckettes 71-55 two weeks ago and picked up another convincing win (65-37) over D-I Marion Harding over the weekend.

Buckeye Central throttled Colonel Crawford 65-35 last week, followed it up with an 18-point win over Mohawk on Saturday and took control of the Northern 10 with an impressive win over Seneca East Tuesday night.

There was no change atop any division this week, with Cincinnati Mount Notre Dame at No. 1 in D-I, Granville No. 1 in D-II, Wheelersburg No. 1 in D-III and Fort Loramie No. 1 in D-IV.
