The top 10 remains the same this week after the area’s best teams took care of business.

It was a truncated week of basketball as snowy and bitterly cold weather prompted postponements and cancellations. But there were still some notable results: In Prince George’s County, Eleanor Roosevelt took down Bowie in a battle of contenders. The Raiders were supposed to play Wise earlier in the week, but that game was rescheduled. The rivalry matchup should provide a clearer picture of how things stand. 

In Virginia, Potomac Falls continues to win. At 14-0, the Panthers are quickly approaching last year’s win total of 20. Also, Lake Braddock earned a big win by beating South County, 100-97. The Bruins had a chance to tie it on the final possession but failed to convert.

West Potomac joins the rankings this week. Paint Branch is the only other newcomer.
