AP high school basketball poll recommendations


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The initial 2014 Associated Press Ohio high school basketball polls will be released on Monday, Jan. 6.

To help the voters, the AP welcomes all Ohio members to send a few recommendations for boys and girls teams from their area that they consider to be deserving of statewide recognition.

Please clearly separate your boys and girls recommendations and make sure you have teams listed in the correct division. Consult the OHSAA Web site (www.ohsaa.org) if you are unsure of the divisions. Also include current records for your teams.

You may email your lists to rmiller@ap.org. No teams will be accepted after 3 p.m. on Thursday.

From your recommendations, we will organize a watch list of teams and email them to voters.

The first boys poll will be for release at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6. The first girls poll will be for release at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7. Each will be released at the same day and time each week.
