For the first time this season, the Orangeburg-Wilkinson boys’ basketball team are no longer ranked in the Top 10 of the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association polls.

The Bruins (2-4) dropped from the Class 3-A rankings despite this past Saturday’s 70-48 win over Calhoun County. The Saints (1-2) are ranked eight in the Class 2-A poll and travel to Class 2-A top-ranked Lake Marion (4-0) tonight.

Also falling out of the Top 10 in Class A girls was Blackville-Hilda, while Denmark-Olar dropped from third to fifth. Meanwhile, the undefeated Bruinettes (6-0) also remain at the top of polls in Class 3-A and return to action Saturday at Calhoun County.
