Three boys high school basketball teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in the ninth Associated Press poll of the season, released by the organization late Monday afternoon.

Cedar Falls continues to be the favorites to win the Class 4A state championship. The unbeaten Tigers (15-0) are rated No. 1 for the fifth straight week. They received eight of the 10 first-place votes that were cast by a state-wide panel of sports journalists.

Dike-New Hartford (18-2) and Aplington-Parkersburg (18-3) are the other rated teams from the region. The North Iowa Cedar League East Division rivals are both ranked among the top 10 in Class 2A as substate tournament play begins this week on the road to state.
