The Power 10 / Boys basketball rankings

1 Canisius (1): Friday night. 7 p.m. At St. Joe's. Get there early.

2 Niagara Falls (2): Wolverines stayed at No. 2 in large school poll

3 St. Joe's (7): This despite Marauders' tremendous win over Aquinas on Saturday. I could see why St. Joe's would think it should have moved up further; a win Friday would certainly take care of that.

4 Jamestown (3): Red Raiders at Clarence on a loaded Friday schedule.

5 Olean (4): Second matchup with Dunkirk a week away.

6 St. Mary's (8): Played outstanding basketball in Tuesday night's win at Timon.

7 Bishop Timon-St. Jude (5): Schedule lull over: Next nine games include two vs. St. Joe's, two vs. Canisius, plus Section V (Rochester) powers Kearney (Friday) and Aquinas.

8 McKinley (6): Macks remain atop competitive Yale Cup crowd.

9 Riverside (9): Off until Feb. 2 vs. East, which it lost to in Yale Cup I opener.

10 OTC Middle College (NR): Still several suitors here. The Kats take a turn after Hutch-Tech held the spot last week.
