“Polls don’t really mean very much this time of year. That being said I do want to congratulate my guys on how hard they have worked to this point in our first year of AHSAA competition.  We understand how much work still lies ahead to reach our goals," said Tuscaloosa Academy basketball head coach Barry Sanderson.

North Sand Mountain is narrowly behind at No. 2, followed by Fyffe at No. 3, Vincent at No. 4, Locust Fork at No. 5, Frances Marion at No. 6, Hatton at No. 7, LaFayette at No. 8, Lanette at No. 9, and Decatur Heritage at No. 10.
