The second state Associated Press poll of the 2012-2013 season for Division I boys basketball team was released on January 14, 2013 with three TRAC teams listed in the top ten.

With their 39-30 win over Central Catholic on January 11, the Whitmer Pathers (10-2 / 5-1 TRAC) moved into the No. 3 ranking.  The Fighting Irish (8-1 / 3-1 TRAC) dropped from No. 2 to No. 5 while St. John’s Jesuit (10-3 / 5-1 TRAC) jumped into the No. 9 position from their 12th-place ranking in the previous first poll.

All three teams are contending for leadership in TRAC conference play.

St. John’s hosts Central Catholic on Friday, January 18 and then travels to Whitmer on Tuesday, January 22.  Central Catholic will play unranked Findlay (7-4 / 4-1 TRAC), which is one game back in conference play, on the same night.
