A team in Utah has never been ranked No. 1 in the MaxPreps.com Xcellent top 25 for football, baseball or basketball, but that changed as the Lone Peak High School boys basketball team got the top ranking.

Lone Peak got jumped to the top spot from No. 2 last week, due in part to previously No. 1 Simeon High School's loss to DeSoto. MaxPreps.com is saying Simeon looked surprisingly sluggish in the loss.

Lone Peak will take on Callaway, the defending 5A state champions of Mississippi on Wednesday, in the City of Palms Classic.

Lone Peak currently has a record of 7-0.
