The Boston Globe’s Top 20 poll was released on Monday and two city teams remained in the boys' rankings.
No. 8 New Mission continues to assert its position as the front runners in the city league with two huge wins against Madison Park (69-64) and East Boston (68-44) last week.
While coach Dennis Wilson’s team played their best game of the season against New Mission, the Titans still managed to put up 69 points in the win and their 68 against East Boston earned them a 24-point win. New Mission continues to have the best offense in the city-league, averaging 71.7 ppg.
The loss for East Boston drops them to No. 15 in the rankings however, the Jets responded well with a 21-point win over a South Boston team that had been on a roll, winning three straight.
Central Catholic remained in the top-spot in the rankings, followed by St. John’s Prep and Mansfield.
