The latest 5A AP prep basketball poll is no different than a week ago with Borah the top team followed by Boise.

Borah is now 12-0 with a date against Meridian Friday night January 19th. Meridian is not in the top 5 but the Warriors have beaten a top five team this year in the Boise Braves.

Boise is second at 11-1 their only blemish a 66-60 loss to Meridian. Ironically the Warriors play Borah on the eve of a much ballyhooed Borah-Boise showdown at Boise January 20th.

Meridian is 8-5 and has shown the ability to play with the best. The likely hood of them beating Borah in the Lions Den Friday night might be slim but that's why they play the game and that's why 630 The Fan will broadcast the game live.

The Meridian-Borah showdown is our Taco Bell game of the week. 630 The Fan is also your home for Idaho Vandal basketball and Saturday the Vandals will be at Northern Arizona, that game airing on 630 The Fan the same time Boise and Borah collide.

Obviously it is an interesting week for prep basketball as the top two teams have to take care they don't look past Friday games, Borah vs. Meridian and Boise vs. Kuna, towards their Saturday collision at Boise High.

Here now the top 5 teams this week in both the 5A and 4A polls:

5A 1.Borah 12-0,  2.Boise 11-1,  3.Post Falls 10-5, 4.Rocky Mountain 10-3, 5.Madison 12-2.

4A 1.Preston 13-0, 2.Skyview 9-3, 3.Burley 9-3, 4.Vallivue 8-4, 5.Lake City 8-3
