Ozarks Fab 15: Kickapoo remains at top while Willard makes a jump

A busy week of girls' high school basketball led to plenty of movement in our power rankings.

Each week, the News-Leader will publish its "Ozarks Fab 15" rankings for both boys and girls basketball — power ranking the teams across the Ozarks.

News-Leader reporter Wyatt Wheeler will rank 15 boys and girls teams each week. The first five teams left out will be listed in alphabetical order.

Among the considered factors in the rankings:

  • Watching teams play in 2020-21
  • Game results in 2020-21
  • Success vs. common opponents
  • Program success over the years

This week's notables

The biggest win of the week came when Willard handed Nixa a 58-48 loss.
