STATE CHAMPS! Michigan small-school girls basketball rankings for Jan. 27: Hart, Camden-Frontier enter top 25

By: MATTHEW B. MOWERY, January 27, 2020, 4:32 pm

In the 11 days since our last small-school girls basketball rankings, many of our top 25 teams have continued to roll along complacently, solidifying their spots in the pecking order with win after win. There were, however, seven of the last top 25 that were handed a loss in the interim, dropping the down the rankings — and two of them out at the bottom — making room for a pair of new teams in Hart and Camden-Frontier.
