1. St. Vincent-St. Mary (1)

2. Garfield Heights (2)

Record: 16-3

Since the calendar turned to 2016, the Bulldogs’ only losses have been to prep schools. Friday’s game may be a showdown between the top Division I and Division III teams in the state.

This week: Feb. 9 at JFK, Feb. 12 vs. No. 8 Beachwood

3. Benedictine (3)

Record: 17-2

The Bengals have just won game this week before what could be their toughest two-game stretch of the season. Benedictine completed its home schedule and did not lose a game in their building this season.

Last week: Defeated NDCL and Gilmour

This week: Feb. 12 at Lake Catholic

4. St. Ignatius (5)

Record: 12-4

Not a bad week for St. Ignatius, which snapped Columbus Northland’s 91-game home win streak this past Saturday. The schedule ramps up with three games this week.

Last week: Defeated Columbus Northland

First game: Feb. 9 vs. Glenville, Feb. 12 vs. Cleveland Heights, Feb. 13 at Massillon Jackson

5. St. Edward (4)

Record: 12-6

A 21-point night for Jack Sullivan was not enough on Friday for the Eagles, as they fell to St. Vincent-St. Mary. Still, the team bounced back with a 22-point win over Euclid on Saturday.

Last week: Defeated Euclid, lost to No. 1 St. Vincent-St. Mary

This week: Feb. 13 vs. No. 10 Cleveland Central Catholic

6. East Tech (7)

Last week: Defeated MLK and Glenville

This week: No game

7. Lorain (6)

Record: 15-3

9. Archbishop Hoban (10)

Record: 14-4

The Knights lost to St. Vincent-St. Mary but snapped a three-game losing skid with a win over Lake Catholic. The goal will be to make that start a win streak so the team is playing well heading into March.

This week: Feb. 9 vs. Canton Central Catholic, Feb. 12 at Padua

10. Cleveland Central Catholic (11)

11. Bedford (9)

Record: 13-5

First game: Feb. 9 vs. Shaw, Feb. 12 at No. 7 Lorain

12. Elyria (12)

Record: 13-4

The red-hot Pioneers have two more tricky league games this week, especially Friday’s trip to Medina. Elyria has won 10 games in a row.

First game: Feb. 9 vs. Strongsville, Feb. 12 at No. 15 Medina

13. Brunswick (13)

Record: 15-4

The last two-game week of the regular season is a doozy for Brunswick with two difficult league games. Senior Kevin Simmons is coming off of a 19-point game against Euclid and will look to carry that over to this week.

Last week: Defeated Euclid

This week: Feb. 9 vs. No. 15 Medina, Feb. 12 at Strongsville

14. Copley (16)

Record: 18-0

Copley can add a championship to its season, as the Indians won the league title this past week. Only four games now stand between Copley and a perfect regular season.

Last week: Defeated Wadsworth and Highland

This week: Feb. 9 vs. Akron North, Feb. 12 vs. Aurora

15. Medina (18)

16. Walsh Jesuit (14)

This week: Feb. 9 at No. 1 St. Vincent-St. Mary, Feb. 12 at NDCL

17. Villa Angela-St. Joseph (17)

Record: 13-5

A couple of road tests loom ahead for the Vikings, who are coming off of a loss. After a strong start to the season, the team is 5-4 in their last nine games.

Last week: Defeated Warren JFK, lost to Mentor

This week: Feb. 9 at Gilmour, Feb. 12 at Trinity

18. Brecksville (15)

Record: 15-2

The Bees might play their toughest game of the season on Tuesday when they host Canton McKinley. Perhaps they were looking ahead, as they suffered an unexpected loss to North Royalton last week.

Last week: Defeated Valley Forge, lost to North Royalton

This week: Feb. 9 vs. Canton McKinley, Feb. 12 vs. Wadsworth

19. Midview (25)

Record: 14-5

After a season sweep of Olmsted Falls, Midview is looking like the best team in its conference. The Middies can solidify that with a perfect finish to the season.

Last week: Defeated Westlake and then-No. 23 Olmsted Falls

This week: Feb. 9 vs. Lakewood, Feb. 12 vs. Avon Lake

20. Hudson (NR)

Record: 14-4

A convincing win over Stow last week propels Hudson into the Top 25. Zack Meder is having a terrific season for the Explorers and is one of the more underrated players in the area.

Last week: Defeated Shaw and then-No. 20 Stow

This week: Feb. 9 at Highland, Feb. 12 vs. Twinsburg

21. Maple Heights (24)

Record: 10-6

Behind the play of Alfonse Hale, the Mustangs more than held their own in a tough loss to Lorain last week. Many quality wins, including two against Warrensville Heights, have made this a memorable season.

Last week: Defeated Lincoln West, lost to then-No. 6 Lorain

This week: Feb. 10 at Cleveland Heights, Feb. 12 at Shaw

22. Warrensville Heights (NR)

Record: 9-8

Back in the Top 25, Warrensville Heights now has an absurdly difficult week ahead. Even one win this week would be an impressive showing.

Last week: Defeated Holy Name and then-No. 9 Bedorf

This week: Feb. 9 vs. No. 7 Lorain, Feb. 10 at No. 1 St. Vincent-St. Mary, Feb. 13 at Cleveland Heights

23. Bay (19)

Record: 14-3

An unexpected loss to Normandy has Bay falling down the rankings this week. The Rockets will look to bounce back with a couple of easier league games.

Last week: Defeated Rocky River, lost to Normandy

This week: Feb. 12 at Valley Forge, Feb. 13 vs. Lutheran West

24. Coventry (NR)

Record: 15-3

Another big season by Bryce Hargrove has Coventry looking dangerous come February. A tricky game against Western Reserve Academy looms ahead.

Last week: Defeated Woodridge and Massillon Perry

This week: Feb. 10 vs. Western Reserve Academy, Feb. 12 at Akron Springfield

25. Stow (20)

Record: 14-4

Stow will try bounce back from a loss with a few league games lying ahead on the schedule this week. Prior to the loss against Hudson, the Bulldogs had won eight games in a row.

Last week: Defeated Massillon Washington, lost to Hudson

This week: Feb. 9 at Barberton, Feb. 12 vs. Cuyahoga Falls

Dropped out: Firestone, Elyria Catholic, Olmsted Falls
