USA TODAY Metro Atlanta Super 25 Boys Poll

USA TODAY Metro Atlanta Super 25 Boys Poll

ATLANTA -- The USA Today Super 25 Boys Basketball Poll for Metro Atlanta is here.  The teams have made it through their holiday tournaments with two very familiar faces at the top.

When coaching legend Dr. Phil McCrary suddenly stepped down last summer, Kerry Sandifer was thrust into the lead role with a team that had won 3 straight state championships.  So far, not much has changed on Columbia Drive.  The Eagles beat Norcross in the final of their own holiday tournament and they are the number one team this week.

4-time state champion Miller Grove is next, followed by Hillgrove, Shiloh and Norcross to complete the top 5.  North Cobb is 6th this week, with Greater Atlanta Christian, North Gwinnett, Alatoona and Marist completing this week's top 10.
