With the NBA's future in dire straits, extra attention trickles down to the high school hoops scene, where the season has begun in many states. Eleven of the Top 25 teams have tipped off their seasons, with plenty more taking to the court this week. There's already been some shakeup: La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) has entered the rankings, while Notre Dame Prep (Fitchburg, Mass.) has fallen out.
Although movement was modest, expect things to heat up in the coming weeks. The schedule only intensifies, with several high-profile matchups looming on the horizon.
