Twin Falls vs. Minico boys basketball

Minico junior Larry Vega pulls a loose ball away from Twin Falls senior Jacob Crist on Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, at Twin Falls High School in Twin Falls.

A pair of Mini-Cassia teams moved into their respective top 5s of the Idaho high school boys basketball media poll.

In 4A, Minico edged Middleton for No. 5 in this week’s poll. It’s the first time the Spartans (6-1) have cracked the top 5 all season.

After being tied for fifth in the first poll of the season, Declo spent two weeks outside of the top 5 in 2A. This week, Declo (5-0) jumped to No. 5.

Dietrich (5-1) lost its first game of the season last week (to Declo) but remained No. 1 in the 1A Division II poll. Carey (5-2) dropped from No. 4 to No. 5 in 1A-DII, and Lighthouse Christian (7-1) received one vote.

Valley (6-1) held steady at No. 2 in 1A Division I, and conference foe Raft River (3-3) received a vote.

Burley (4-2) earned four points in 4A, and Kimberly (4-2) received five in 3A.
