In week number four of the Warner Law Offices MetroNews Power Index for boys high school basketball, Martinsburg stays as the top ranked team by a comfortable margin.

The No. 1 Bulldogs suffered a loss over the past week to out of state Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph, 68-59. However, Martinsburg’s strength of schedule kept the Bulldogs (14-2) comfortably ahead of No. 2 Greenbrier East (15-0).

South Charleston moved up a spot to No. 3 overall after improving to 13-1 with a win over St. Albans. Morgantown, meanwhile, tumbled a couple of spots from No. 2 to No. 4 after an upset loss to University in double-overtime. That win for the Hawks, meanwhile, propelled them to No. 10 with a 10-5 record.

Poca saw its ranking fall from No. 12 to No. 14 after a second loss to Tolsia. The Dots were passed by Fairmont Senior as the highest AA team ranked – the Polar Bears come in at No. 12. Bluefield continues to roll as well, coming in at No. 17 as the third highest Class AA team.
