MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.), Duncanville (Texas) and St. Mary's (Phoenix) continue to hold down the top three spots in the USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 national editorial rankings for girls basketball for the week of Feb. 18, 2013.

The USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 rankings appear in today's print edition of USA TODAY Sports, and are also available online at USA TODAY High School Sports (

The USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 is now in its 30th year as the most prestigious high school ranking platform in the nation, and  includes computer rankings of every major high school football, baseball, boys and girls basketball and boys and girls lacrosse team in the nation.

Most of the Super 25 remained relatively stable from last week, with each of the top seven teams remaining in place. Unbeaten Windward (Los Angeles) extended its winning streak to 26 games this season with wins in the first two rounds of its  playoffs to stay at No. 4, while Riverdale (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) also dominated in its district playoffs to remain at No. 5.

Marion County (Lebanon, Ky.), at No. 6, and No. 7 Dutch Fork (Irmo. S.C.) both remain unbeaten and maintain their Super 25 rankings from the previous week.

The only major change from last week's rankings is the departure of Columbus (Ind.) North, which had been ranked No. 8 but drops out of the Super 25 this week. Making its Super 25 debut is 24-0 Millbrook (Raleigh, N.C.) at No. 25, the defending 4A state champions who posted dominating wins over crosstown rival Enloe (60-27) and Wake Forest-Rolesville (50-34) last week.

Following is the complete listing of this week's USA TODAY High School Sports girls basketball rankings.
