The unbeaten York High boys' basketball team is getting statewide attention.

The Bearcats are ranked No. 2 in the PIAA Class 5-A state rankings according to the first edition of the TribLive High School Sports Network poll. The poll is organized by Don Rebel of the (Greensburg) Tribune Review.

Coach Clovis Gallon's Bearcats have been dominant thus far this season, winning each of their four games by at least double digits. Three of the four wins came by more than 25 points.

York High faces a pivotal York-Adams Division I showdown at home against Central York on Tuesday night. The Panthers are 3-1.
