1. Long Island Lutheran (14-3)

3. Massapequa (12-1)

4. Sacred Heart (12-5)

5. Baldwin (10-1)

Top 10 Public Schools:

1. Massapequa (12-1) the Chiefs showed why they are the team to beat, defeating Uniondale 53-39 and all but guaranteeing a Conference AA-I title. Danielle Doherty (above) and Morgan Roessler each had 12 points and Taylor Byrne had 10 points in the win. This is a tough week with games against Freeport and Farmingdale but the Chiefs won the first meetings by 10 and 24 respectively.

2. Baldwin (11-1) the Bruins got back in the swing of things with a 58-28 win over East Meadow. The Conference AA-II title will be decided this week as Baldwin hosts Hicksville on Tuesday and then travels to MacArthur on Friday.

3. North Shore (12-1) Erin Sheerin had 11 of her 12 points in the first half of Friday’s 72-44 win over Clarke. Tuesday’s game with Island Trees is the last realistic hurdle to an undefeated league season for the Vikings.

4. MacArthur (10-1) Courtney Noakes had 14 points and six rebounds in a 49-27 win over Plainview JFK. The Generals take on Port Washington, who they beat 55-51 in overtime the first time around, and then host Baldwin Friday in what could end up being the Conference title game.

5. Uniondale (8-5) no shame at all for the Knights in Friday’s 53-39 loss to Massapequa. Aliyah McDonald had 11 points and Sakara Hester-Torres added 10 points but it was not enough against the extremely deep Chiefs. Uniondale travels to Oceanside on Tuesday.

6. Floral Park (10-2) the Knights had a week off and return with Manhasset Tuesday which could prove to be a trap game with a trip to Lynbrook looming Friday for the outright Conference A-III lead.

7. Lynbrook (9-3) the Owls took it easy in a 56-24 win over Valley Stream South. A trip to lowly Glen Cove Tuesday will allow Lynbrook to focus all of their attention on Friday’s rematch with Floral Park.

8. Garden City (11-2) the Trojans avenged their earlier loss to Wantagh, defeating the Warriors 43-29 behind Sam Auricchio’s 14 points. An easy week against Jericho and Roslyn will only further solidify Garden City’s spot as the probable 2 or 3 seed in the playoffs.

9. Sewanhaka (11-2) Shantell McCall’s 18 points and 13 rebounds helped set the pace in a 64-56 win over Hewlett. Tuesday’s game with Division won’t be easy.

10. Wantagh (9-4) the Warriors fell to Garden City and split the season series. Wantagh can’t afford to get down because another loss would mean a huge drop in playoff seeds. South Side and Jericho are up this week.

On the bubble:

Farmingdale (8-2), Freeport (7-5), Manhasset (10-3), Herricks (11-1), Hicksville, (9-3), Mepham (9-3), Island Trees (10-2)
