Idaho Falls vs Skyline boys basketball

Idaho Falls Coach Howard Hart cheers on players as the Tigers defeated Skyline earlier this month. Idaho Falls moved into the 4A state rankings released Tuesday.

The final boys basketball state media poll was released Tuesday with little change other than movement in the 4A ranks.

Ririe remained the area’s lone No. 1 team, earning a unanimous No. 1 spot in 2A. The 19-1 Bulldogs concluded regular season conference play 8-0 to take the No. 1 seed into the 2A District 6 tournament.

Twin Falls overtook Preston as No. 1 in 4A, earning five of the nine first-place votes. The Indians and Century split the remaining four first-place votes. Idaho Falls (15-5), which had previously been receiving votes, moved into No. 5.

In 5A, Madison remained second behind Rocky Mountain, but did garner a first-place vote. Rigby dropped from No. 3 to No. 4.

Teton and Sugar-Salem swapped the No. 4 and No. 5 rankings in 3A after Teton earned the No. 1 seed in the 3A District 6 tournament. Snake River was among 3A teams receiving votes. In 1A Division II, Mackay remained No. 4.

Below is the full poll with local teams bolded.
