NEW: Worcester South Takes Big Jump In ESPN Boston Boys Hoops Poll

Tuesday, February 05, 2013


Worcester South, led by senior guard Rod Milton, is 12-2.

There’s a new top dog among the Central Mass. squads in this week’s ESPN Boston Top 25 boys basketball poll.

Worcester South’s 67-62 victory over St. John’s of Shrewsbury last Friday helped catapult the Colonels (12-2, 2-1 Inter-High) nine spots into the No. 13 ranking. Senior guard Rod Milton, the second-leading scorer in Central Mass. at 23.1 points per contest, delivered a game-high 27 points along with nine rebounds against the Pioneers.

Worcester South is riding a five-game winning streak.

St. John’s (10-4, 4-1 Central Mass. Conference) fell one spot to No. 15. The Pioneers have won six of their past seven games.

Wachusett (14-2, 7-0 Midland League A) remained at No. 18. Since their Jan. 22 loss to the Colonels, the Mountaineers are 3-2 following an 11-0 start.

Milford (14-1, 11-1 Hockomock League) is up two spots to No. 23. The Hawks have clinched a playoff berth.
