The season’s second edition of Dave Cantrall’s Rating the State for high school basketball in Kentucky still has Scott County’s boys and Campbell County’s girls at No. 1, but there was still plenty of movement in the top 25.

That includes Louisville Trinity moving up to No. 2 in the boys’ poll and Murray’s girls jumping six spots to No. 4.
