I believe this is the first time in a while Prescott has been in the top 10. Playing good ball right now. If they keep it up they will be a tough out in the tourney.

Harding Academy is 7-0 against 3A teams. Their two losses are to GCT (5A) and Cabot (6A), both of whom are ranked in the top 13 in Arkansas overall.

However, the Wildcats have had only 1 competitive game against a 3A opponent. the Beat Bald Knob by 7 at BK. We'll find out if they're for real tomorrow night when they invade Tuckerman.

I figured they lost again....I went and watched The Lamar/Atkins games.... And came away thinking if Atkins is top, 10 then 3a isn't very deep...

In my opinion, at least 2 solid Top 10 teams have not been mentioned in this thread yet.  But, I am patient enough to wait for it to become self-evident.

After seeing a little bit of Elkins, I don't think they are top 3 in the state. Don't get me wrong, they are good, but I don't think there's any way that they are a top 3 team in the state right now. They have only played 4 teams with a record above .500 this year. We should know if they are for real after Waldron tonight and Charleston Tuesday.

Both of those are definitely Top 10, IMO.  But Osceola is in both lists above.

Looks like Valley Springs reloaded again. What does Dumas have? And I agree that Elkins might be ranked a little high with the loss of their best point guard but their record shows they have to be on this list.

Dumas has athletes and the first team will press you full court man to man pressure defense then when they get tired, a whole new 5 comes in that can do the same thing. If you canít handle the ball, they will eat you up quick.

Oh makes sense why they are so high ranked. I can see a team like that being a big problem in state.

Trumann has beat Manila and Rivercrest, split with Gosnel (according to maxpreps which I did not realize they played twice), and has not played Osecola yet as of this post. They are for sure Top 10 at the moment

They beat gosnell when gosnell played 5 nights in a row. In the rematch gosnell was up 20+ pretty much all game. Tonight osceola will beat trumann by 10+. They beat rivercrest without Kam turner. The win over manila is a good one but that's the only one.

Update:

1. Valley Springs
2. Dumas
3. Harding
4. Bergman
5. Osceola
6. Manila
7. Prescott
8.Trumann
9. Ashdown
10. Elkins

Elkins without the PG lost to Waldron and has Charleston up next so will probably fall out. Trumann's lose to Osceola by 5 doesn't really hurt them.

I gotta say, Baptist Prep sure looks like a top 10 team to me. Top 5 lock excepting there isnít much height. They make up for it with shooting and intelligent play. Certainly a team that you wouldnít want to draw in postseason play.

Just making a statement, all teams end up choking besides one I guess. For a small to medium size school, 2 regional championships & 6 of 7 conference or district championships in last 7 not shabby with home grown kids. 58-60 schools in 3A would gladly take that over the last 7 years.
