The Boston Globe released its first boys' and girls' basketball Top 20 polls of the season on Tuesday and four city schools made the poll on the boys' side.

Fifth-ranked Brighton earned the top ranking in the city after making it to the Division 2 title game last spring.

New Mission, which is off to a fast 3-0 start this winter, is No. 9 in the poll while Madison Park and East Boston came in at No. 15 and No. 18 respectively.

Madison Park and East Boston's rankings, however, are likely to change quickly after East Boston defeated the Cardinals Tuesday night at Madison Park.

Central Catholic garnered the top spot in the poll ahead of North Andover and Danvers.
