After winning five games in a row, Charlotte Catholic has moved to No. 5 in the Charlotte Observer’s Sweet 16 boys basketball poll.

The Cougars (13-3, 8-0) have a slight lead over Marvin Ridge (14-5, 8-1) in the Southern Carolinas conference.

Elsewhere in the poll, there’s plenty of shuffling but no new teams. That could change with a busy week that includes plenty of big games between ranked teams.
