Six teams from the Cedar Valley and Northeast Iowa are once again featured in the latest prep basketball rankings, released by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) on Thursday (Jan. 28, 2016).

The biggest gain this week involved Cedar Falls, which moved up six spots in the Class-5A poll. The Tigers (15-1) jumped from No. 10 to No. 4 following a trio of wins in a span of five days. Two of the victories were against top-15 opponents, top-ranked Cedar Rapids Kennedy (which fell to No. 6 this week) and No. 14 Iowa City West.

In Class-4A, Waverly-Shell Rock (15-3) moved within one spot of a top-10 ranking. The Go-Hawks jumped one spot from No. 12 to No. 11.

The remaining four teams stayed where they were last week. Turkey Valley (17-0) continues to lead the Class-1A survey, while Grundy Center (15-10) is ranked at No. 14 in Class-2A. Center Point-Urbana (17-0) is No. 2 and La Porte City Union (17-1) is No. 5 in Class-3A.
