Scott No. 1 in Blade basketball poll

The first Blade boys basketball poll of the season is out and only one of last season's four divisional poll champions starts the new season at No. 1.

Liberty-Benton (6-0), which won the Division III Blade title last year, opens 2000-01 at the top in that division, one notch above last year's Division II poll winner, Otsego (5-0), which has dropped a classification because of reduced enrollment.

Liberty-Benton collected four Blade Division IV poll titles in succession under coach Steve Williman (1993-96).

In Division I, coach Earl Morris's Scott Bulldogs (5-1) begin January at No. 1, replacing archrival Libbey, which went 25-1 last year to win the big-school Blade trophy. Scott sits at No. 1 on the strength of handing preseason City League favorite St. John's Jesuit (8-1) its only loss of the season. Libbey (7-1) ranks third.

Ottawa-Glandorf sits atop Division II, and in Division IV, veteran head coach Paul Wayne's Holgate Tigers are the last remaining unbeaten among the area's small-school teams.
