The Princeton Tigers and Prairie Central Hawks had a connection throughout the boys basketball season. If it wasn't the Tigers on top of the Associated Press Class 2A rankings it was the Hawks. Prairie Central claimed the No. 1 ranking at the start of the new year from DePaul College Prep, but surrendered it to the Tigers the next week. Princeton, however, lost it after losing to Normal U-High, scooped up by Columbia on Feb. 1.
