Lansing-Area Girls Basketball Poll (As of January 10th)
Haslett and DeWitt remain the cream of the crop in the Mid-Michigan area in girls basketball as we get close to the halfway point of the season. They are the only unbeaten teams in the area, as both are 8-0.
You may remember that I had DeWitt number 1 last week with Haslett 2nd. With Haslett winning twice and DeWitt idle, I rewarded the lady Vikings by moving them into the top spot this week.
And DeWitt and Haslett play each other next Tuesday night at Haslett HS. What a ballgame that should be.
Only two other teams have one loss at this point. CMAC leader Dansville is 7-1 and GLAC co-leader Lakewood is 6-1.
There are plenty of quality two-loss teams out there, too. Holt (7-2), Portland (7-2), and Ovid-Elsie (7-2) are among them.
The most stunning result was Lansing Christian rallying from a 44-34 deficit with less than a minute remaining to beat Olivet 45-44 last Friday night. Because of that result, it's a four-team race in the GLAC right now.
The best win of the week belongs to Haslett. As they used a big 4th quarter to beat Holt on the road, 52-41 last Tuesday night.
Having said all of that, here's this week's top 10 poll for girls basketball in the area:
