For the boys basketball teams in Colorado, nothing can be easy. Chaos has erupted again, giving the polls in each classification a different look this week.

The most notable change is Northfield taking over as No. 1 in Class 5A after a big win over Vista Peak. Strasburg lands at No. 2 in the 3A rankings and there was once again a shakeup in 6A.

ThunderRidge regains the top spot after falling out of that position a week ago. With two weeks left in the regular season, each game will have major implications moving forward.

The full rankings for all classifications can be seen below.

The top 10 for each classification have no bearing on playoff position and while CHSAA’s Selection and Seeding Index provide a look at how playoff brackets will be determined, the CP Polls will give an overarching assessment of teams ranked based on talent and play.
