Girls Basketball - Minico Vs. Twin Falls

Minico's Anna Bateman talks to her players during a timeout in the 4A District 4  championship game Thursday night, Feb. 9, 2017, at Twin Falls High School.

The week three Idaho high school girls basketball media poll was released on Wednesday, and three pairs of District 4 teams traded spots in the rankings.

Minico knocked Burley out of the top five in 4A voting after beating the Bobcats 48-38 on the road. The Spartans (4-2) were on a four-game winning streak through Tuesday. Burley (4-2) will have to wait until Jan. 12 before getting a shot at revenge against Minico.

Buhl topped Kimberly in the 3A poll, jumping to the No. 5 ranking. The Indians (6-1) defeated Gooding 62-55 earlier this season, while the Bulldogs (4-2) fell to Gooding 50-44 following the week two poll. The teams will square off in a week.

Oakley and Shoshone remained at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, in the 1A Division I poll. The Indians (6-0) have used strong defense to power their wins, including a 41-21 home win Monday over previously undefeated Lighthouse Christian.

The loss to Shoshone didn’t hurt the Lions (7-1) a bit, as they jumped into the 1A-DII rankings at No. 5, knocking Dietrich (4-2) out of the top five, though the Blue Devils still received two points. Questions about the two will be answered when they meet on Monday in Dietrich.
