Power Pack: RI High School Girls’ Basketball- February 11th
Tuesday, February 11, 2014
No new faces in the Power Pack this week, but there is some shifting in the Top 5 after a host of Division 1 powerhouses faced off and dealt each other losses. Division's 2 and 3 remain represented in the Top 10, and with things getting sticky in Division 1 we might see some new teams in the other Divisions before season's end. This week is filled with big games as well, but first here's the updated Power Pack.
