For the first time in 2019, Benton Harbor is no longer the No. 1 team in the state's top 25 rankings. This week's edition of MLive's top 25 boys basketball rankings has a few other changes, including the editions of Ypsilanti Lincoln and Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy.
Here is MLive's latest list of the top 25 boys basketball teams in the state, regardless of class.
25. Ypsilanti Lincoln 10-1
Winners of five straight, the Railsplitters have an exciting week ahead. After what should be wins against Pinckney on Tuesday and Tecumseh on Friday, Lincoln travels to take on Benton Harbor on Saturday at Grand Rapids Union.
24. Walled Lake Northern 14-0
The Knights continue to roll and haven't shown any signs of slowing down. Last week, Northern picked up a 37-point win over South Lyon East and a 20-point win over Walled Lake Central. Milford is the only game this week, scheduled for Tuesday, and it will be the final obstacle standing between the Knights and an undefeated Lakes Valley Conference regular season effort.
23. Mount Pleasant,12-0
Every week has been a good one for the undefeated Oilers and last week ranks high among them. Notching a 56-44 win over Orchard Lake St. Mary's on Dr. Martin Luther King Day, Mt. Pleasant went back to action the next day and dominated Bay City Western, 73-38. The Oilers also had 57-45 win over Bay City Central. A meeting with 10-3 Midland awaits on Tuesday. Mt. Pleasant beat Midland, 56-47, to open the season.
After double-digit wins over Midland and Romulus last week, the schedule is all Saginaw Valley Conference Red Division games from here on out. Saginaw Heritage and Bay City Central are on tap for this week.
21. Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern 14-0
Forest Hills Northern cemented itself at the top of the OK White with wins over Forest Hills Central and Grand Rapids Northview last week. Only one game awaits this week as the Huskies travel to Greenville on Friday, a team it beat by 45 points earlier this month.
20. Wayne Memorial 10-2
As expected, Wayne dominated Livonia Churchill and Dearborn. Perhaps the biggest week of the season awaits as the Zebras host Westland John Glenn on Tuesday and then at Livonia Stevenson on Friday.
19. Ann Arbor Pioneer 11-2
Pioneer is 4-0 in Southeastern Conference Red Division play after beating Temperance Bedford last week. Two road matchups await this week as the Pioneers take on Monroe on Tuesday and then prepare for a big matchup with rival Ann Arbor Skyline on Friday.
18. Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy 12-0
Chandler Park Academy has been laying waste to its competition in the Charter School Conference. A 32-point win over Macomb Dakota is a key highlight in the list of recent wins for the Eagles. Last week, the Eagles beat Detroit Cornerstone by 21 points and Warren Michigan Collegiate by 33 points. A Tuesday road matchup at Southfield Bradford awaits to determine the conference regular season champion.
Jarvis Walker, a transfer from Mona Shores, became eligible last week and made an immediate impact as he led the team in a scoring with 19 points in a 79-49 win over Mona Shores on Tuesday. Muskegon then clobbered Fruitport before notching a 56-47 win over Belleville this last weekend. The Big Reds host Kenowa Hills on Friday before travelling to Grand Rapids Union on Saturday to face Grand Blanc.
16. Muskegon Reeths-Puffer12-1
The win streak has reached 10 games after a 19-point win over Spring Lake. Road matchups with Grand Rapids Kenowa Hills and Grand Rapids Union await this week.

14. Canton 11-1
Two more wins last week extend Canton's win streak to 11 games. Canton won those games by a combined 71 points. Canton hosts Northville on Tuesday after beating them, 65-46, earlier in the season. Canton will also travel to face Novi on Friday.
13. Williamston 13-1

12. Detroit Cass Tech 10-3
Cass Tech has wrapped up PSL regular season play with wins over Detroit Douglass and Detroit Collegiate Prep last week. The Technicians will wait to see which opponent it will face for the start of the Detroit Public School League tournament on Friday.
11. Benton Harbor 14-1
In its only game last week, Benton Harbor lost on Saturday to Detroit Edison Public School Academy, 77-68. The Tigers lost control of the game in the second half and trailed by 17 heading into the fourth quarter.
10. Flint Beecher 12-2
Beecher came so close to notching a marquee win at home on Saturday when it fell to Detroit U-D Jesuit. Despite coming close to knocking off the Cubs, it is Beecher's second loss in three games. The road remains tough for the Bucs this week as it travels to Grand Blanc on Tuesday and then hosts Goodrich on Friday for a matchup that could decide the Genesee Area Conference Red Division regular season title.
9. Okemos 13-1
Picking up another CAAC Blue win last week by defeating Grand Ledge, 47-45, the Chiefs will wrap up a five-game stretch of road games this week against conference bottom dwellers in Holt and Lansing Waverly.
8. Detroit Catholic Central 10-3
The Shamrocks registered two more wins last week, including a close 54-50 overtime win over Orchard Lake St. Mary's. Catholic Central will travel to Warren De La Salle on Tuesday in its only game this week. In fact, it will be the last game before the Catholic League A/B tournament begins on Feb. 9.
7. Detroit Martin Luther King13-2
Easy wins over Detroit Collegiate Prep and Detroit Western International have King awaiting the start of the PSL tournament on Friday. The Crusaders will be attempting to catch their first city title since 2012.

New Haven's win streak has reached 11 games as the Rockets have won 11 of those games by at least 26 points. Averaging 77 points per game, New Haven travels to Romeo on Tuesday and to Grand Rapids Union on Saturday.
4. Roseville 13-1
Roseville is in aggressive cruise control at the moment, having easily beaten Utica Eisenhower and Macomb L'Anse Creuse North last week. Roseville can wrap up the Macomb Area Conference Red Division title in its first year in the division with a win at Stevenson on Tuesday. Warren Woods Tower await on Friday.
3. Clarkston 12-2
Clarkston only seems to be getting stronger as January presses on. After a 31-point win over Bloomfield Hills, the Wolves dismantled rival Lake Orion, 64-38, thanks in part to some stellar 3-point shooting. The freshman guard pair of Fletcher Loyer and Keegan Wasilk certainly have a bright future as the next great tandem in Michigan.
2. Detroit U-D Jesuit12-2
Picking up three more wins last week, its win over Flint Beecher was as close as it gets as Jesuit won, 70-69, despite holding a 17-point lead at one point in the second half.

1. River Rouge
River Rouge notched two more victories last week with a 10-point win over Harper Woods and a 48-point win over Detroit Henry Ford Academy for Creative Studies.
