Monday marked the first Top 20 poll of the New Year for The Boston Globe and two city schools remain in the boy’s rankings.

Even though they’re coming off a 3-point loss to Windsor (Conn.), New Mission is now the top-ranked city team at the No. 12 spot thanks to their poignant offense. The Titans 72.6 points-per-game has led them win their first three games of the season, including a blow-out against Charlestown.

East Boston (No. 13) has shown that a full-court buzzer-beater isn’t the only way they can win a close game, after their last win against Everett was decided by just one point.

The future rankings of both these teams will be decided this Wednesday, Jan. 9, when East Boston takes on the Titans at New Mission.

Central Catholic gathered the top spot in the poll ahead of Lowell and St. John’s Prep.
