It’s going to be a fast – and furious – last few weeks in the Class 1A 5280 boys basketball league.

With three of the top four ranked teams in the 1A classification residing in the 5280, a shake-up is inevitable. That will start Thursday when No. 4 Flatirons Academy visits No. 2 Mile High Academy.

Top-ranked Belleview Christian faces Flatirons Academy on Feb. 2, and closes with the Tigers on Feb. 14.

Denver Jewish Day (10-1, 3-0) has been on a roll since a Jan. 3 loss to 3A power Highland. Tigers senior Andrew Zimmerman, in a season full of big games, put together his biggest scoring output last Thursday in an 83-24 victory over Mile High Academy. Zimmerman poured in 41 points on 19-of-21 shooting, adding 10 rebounds. Denver Jewish Day added victories over Lyons and Beth Eden Baptist to run its winning streak to six.

That’s helped them keep pace with the No. 1 Bruins (13-0, 3-0), while the Bison (9-2, 2-0) aren’t far behind. Flatirons’ two losses came to Belleview Christian and 2A’s unbeaten Evangelical Christian.

Fleming moved into the 1A Coaches Poll this week. Heritage Christian and Vail Christian are new additions to the 2A Top 10, while 3A remained mostly unchanged, though Colorado Springs Christian’s three-game losing streak dropped the Lions five spots to No. 10 overall.

With three weeks remaining in the regular season, here is a quick look at the 3A, 2A and 1A classifications:

Class 3A

A tough week caught up with Colorado Springs Christian, which dropped games to No. 1 Faith Christian, No. 2 Salida and unranked Woodland Park.

Faith Christian (11-0, 3-0 in the 4A/3A Metro), downed Manual 83-70 last Thursday behind 26 points from Keegan Page, 21 points and 14 rebounds from Carson Jasa, and 16 points and 11 rebounds from Master Diggins. In a 67-53 triumph over the Lions, Diggins led the way with 20 points. The Eagles have their two biggest games to open February against 4A No. 2 Kent Denver and No. 3 Eagle Ridge Academy.

Third-ranked Highland added another top-10 victory to its resume, downing No. 6 Platte Valley 75-69 on Tuesday night thanks to 18 points from Colton Steinke, one of four players in double figures. The Huskies (10-2, 3-0 in 3A Patriot) have won six in a row.

No. 4 Centauri saw its seven-game winning streak snapped in a 57-52 Intermountain League loss to 4A No. 6 Alamosa. The Falcons (11-2, 3-1) host Ignacio on Friday before beginning their second run through league play with 4A’s No. 7 Pagosa Springs.

Prospect Ridge Academy is in the midst of its run against the 4A powers from the Metro. The No. 5 Miners (8-3, 1-1) took Kent Denver to overtime last Thursday before falling 82-73. Max Vacco scored 28 points to go with eight rebounds, five assists and five steals, and Stockton Rhodes added 16 points and 15 rebounds. Jay Royal led the Sun Devils with 30 points.

After games at Peak to Peak and Regis Groff, PRA travels to play Eagle Ridge Academy next Tuesday.

The Vanguard School is still unbeaten after a 51-44 victory over Banning Lewis Academy last Friday. Drew Houchens led the Coursers (9-0, 5-0 in Tri-Peaks) with 19 points.

No. 8 Yuma (7-2, 3-0 in 3A/2A Lower Platte) has won four in a row, but has home games coming up with 2A No. 4 Wray and No. 1 Limon.

Class 2A

Speaking of Limon, the Badgers (9-0, 3-0 in 2A/1A Union Pacific) had a couple of games snowed out, but the team returned to the court Tuesday night against No. 5 Simla with an impressive 76-64 victory.

Limon hosts Colorado Springs School on Friday, then battles No. 6 Merino on Saturday before visiting Yuma. The Badgers host No. 4 Wray on Feb. 3.

No. 2 Crowley County remained undefeated after dispatching Hoehne 73-51 on Tuesday night. The Chargers visit No. 7 Holly on Saturday.

No. 3 Evangelical Christian is also still unbeaten after a 50-44 victory over Elbert last Saturday.

Wray moved up a spot with its 73-48 victory over Holyoke. Rafel Trejo led four players in double figures with 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Chris Arambula had 13 points and 12 assists.

Burlington kept pace with Limon in the Union Pacific after a big 73-59 victory over 1A’s Genoa-Hugo/Karval. Keziah Williams scored 32 points and had 13 rebounds for Burlington (6-4, 1-0). Trey Smith led Genoa-Hugo/Karval with 28 points.

Saturday’s other top-10 game pits No. 8 Plateau Valley against No. 10 Vail Christian.

Class 1A

No. 7 Stratton has won three in a row, and four players scored in double figures in a 58-50 victory over Eads last Friday. The Eagles (6-3) open Union Pacific play next Tuesday at Deer Trail.

Dove Creek is riding a six-game winning streak thanks to victories over Ouray and Ridgway. Kade Hankins scored 25 points and added 12 rebounds against the Demons.
