After continuing their impressive undefeated run in conference play last week, the Mercer Island boys basketball team is once again ranked in the top 10 for 3A teams.

The Score Czar lists the Islanders as the No. 2 team in the state, while the Tacoma News Tribune ranks MI as the No. 4 team in the state.

Mercer Island is 7-0 in KingCo and 12-1 overall. The team travels to play Juanita in a KingCo game on Friday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m.
