Hornets back to No. 1 in new ASWA rankings

Published 5:01 pm Thursday, January 30, 2014

Dallas County (20-3) finds itself in a familiar spot in the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association basketball poll.

The Hornets are ranked No. 1 in Class 4A, after sliding a couple of weeks ago after a buzzer beating loss to Wilcox Central.

When former No. 1 J. O. Johnson lost last week, it opened the door for the Hornets to climb back to the top spot in the rankings.
