GAHANNA, Ohio -- It's Gahanna's world and we are just living in it. The Lions remain on top of the world of Central Ohio basketball, as they picked up quite possibly their best win of the season when they knocked off Pickerington Central on the road last Friday.
At 13-0, Gahanna is the only remaining unbeaten in the area and one of very few statewide. It wouldn't be a total shock to see them ranked No. 1 in the state in the latest AP poll.
Right behind them is a Walnut Ridge team that is equally as hot. The Scots picked up two of the best wins anyone will get all year when they beat Hilliard Bradley and South in a span of four days. Atop of the City League, Walnut Ridge will be a tough out for anyone, as its senior class is playing the best basketball of their career.
Let's take a look at the rest of the area in Division I.
