Lady Polar Bears, Lady Huskies headline poll

FAIRMONT — When the girls’ basketball Associated Press poll was released Monday, two of the top three teams came from Marion County. Here’s the breakdown:

LOOKING BACK: Westside lost its only game of the week after snow storms kept the Renegades off the court for most of the week. Sissonville fell to Scott in a matchup of top 10 teams, but the Lady Indians were able to pick up two wins to end the week. Clay County lost its only game to St. Mary’s. The only other loss came in the form of Keyser to Allegany, Md. Teams like Fairmont Senior, Summers County, North Marion, Lincoln, PikeView and Scott won all of their games, while Scott beat two top five opponents.

MOVING UP/FALLING DOWN: Moving up this week, North Marion went from fourth to third, putting two Marion County teams in the top three. Lincoln also moved up from seventh to fifth, while Scott moved up to seventh from 10th. Falling down, Westside fell to fourth, Sissonville fell to sixth from fifth, Clay County fell from sixth to ninth and Keyser dropped to 10th from ninth.

BIG 10 STAYING STRONG: With three teams in the top five, the Big 10 Conference has been continously flexing its muscles. With cancellations due to snow, top teams have been kept off the court. Fairmont Senior and North Marion have been snowed out on several occasions and now won’t meet until the Sectional Tournament. The Lady Polar Bears have won 15 games straight, while the Lady Huskies have won 13 straight.

BIG MATCHUPS: Big matchups started Monday night with No. 1 Fairmont Senior and No. 5 Lincoln. From there, No. 2 Summers County will play No. 4 Westside Thursday and No. 7 Scott on Saturday. No. 7 Scott will play No. 9 Clay County along with Summers County. No. 10 Keyser finishes its schedule with three Maryland teams.
