After winning a highly-anticipated matchup over No. 1 Colonia last Tuesday 64-52, St. Thomas Aquinas moves up two spots to take the top position in the Week 4 Bellamy & Son Paving Boys’ Basketball rankings.
Aquinas is one of just eight undefeated teams remaining in the state, three of which are in the Bellamy Top Ten, including Rutgers Prep (8-0), which holds at No. 2.
Gill St. Bernard’s – despite playing only two games so far this year against Skyland Conference competition – had a 3-1 week, beating Franklin and Hunterdon Central in its first two league games of the year by a combined 84 points, and is ranked third, up two spots. St. Joseph of Metuchen (6-2) holds in fourth. Colonia (6-2) fell to fifth.
The bottom five teams stayed the same, with none of them having lost in the past week.
In fact, the entire Bellamy Top Ten only suffered two losses last week: Colonia to then-No. 3 St. Thomas Aquinas, and Gill St. Bernards to Simeon Career (IL), 70-61.
