In the final weekly Associated Press poll of the season released on February 17, 2014, Central Catholic’s boys varsity basketball team was ranked No. 10 in Division I sharing the the ranking with Columbus Northland.   In the first poll of the season the Fighting Irish were ranked as the No. 9 team but dropped out of the top ten after suffering back-t0-back losses to Scott and St. John’s Jesuit in early January.  The poll is voted on by a state panel of sports writers and broadcasters.
