The Millbrook boys and girls are still tops in the News & Observer area basketball rankings, which welcomed in eight new teams this week.

On the boys’ side, Garner and Broughton trade spots behind Millbrook while undefeated Jordan and Word of God round out the top five.

Heritage, Voyager Academy, North Raleigh Christian and defending N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 4A champ Apex join this week’s top 15. Apex has a 5-4 record but three of the losses are to top-four teams.

The top six remain the same in the girls’ rankings, with Northwood, Knightdale, Bunn and Triton entering the top 15.
