Here is this week's Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) basketball poll.

Nine teams from the Cedar Valley and northeast Iowa are featured in the fifth rankings of the season, released late Thursday afternoon (Dec. 21, 2017). Highest-rated among the area squads are Cedar Falls (Class 5A) and Crestwood (Class 3A), which are both ranked No. 2 for a second straight week.

The survey includes four area teams from the North Iowa Cedar League (AGWSR, Grundy Center, Dike-New Hartford, Sumner-Fredericksburg) and two from the Iowa Star Conference (Dunkerton, Janesville).
