Upper Arlington’s 53-51 victory over Dublin Coffman on Feb. 15 caused a shake-up to occur for the final ThisWeek Super 7 boys basketball poll of the 2018-19 season.
With that win, combined with a recent surge that was propelled by the return of senior Max Martz, the Golden Bears earned a spot at No. 6.
The Shamrocks had been No. 1 but finish second behind Pickerington Central, which has won nine in a row and has recovered nicely since losing two starters at midseason because of the OHSAA transfer rule.
Hilliard Bradley is the other OCC team with one loss and finishes at No. 3, while the top team in Division II, Columbus South, ends up at No. 7 after winning its second City League championship in three seasons.FINAL BOYS POLL
