Class A Division II saw the biggest shakeup among ranked East Texas boys basketball teams with the Monday release of the final Texas Association of Basketball Coaches polls of the 2012-13 season.

Douglass moved up two spots to No. 9. That moved Douglass ahead of District 25-A Division II foe Oakwood, which fell from eighth to 10th. The third playoff qualifier from 25-A D-II -- Laneville -- got a one-spot bump from 17th to 16th following its district playoff victory against Chireno, which dropped out of the poll after being ranked 20th a week ago.

In Class 4A, Jacksonville's 54-48 loss at John Tyler cost the Indians a perfect regular season, but only one spot in the poll, which had the Tribe at No. 11. Chapel Hill remained at No. 21 in Class 3A.

Defending state champion White Oak and District 17-2A rival Tatum retained their strangleholds on the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively, in Class 2A. Palestine Westwood slipped one spot to 20th, while New Boston jumped into the poll at No. 25.

All six boys teams ranked in last week's Class A Division II poll kept their same rankings: No. 3 Grapeland, No. 5 Cayuga, No. 8 San Augustine, No. 11 LaPoynor, No. 14 Tenaha, and No. 18 West Sabine. All six will compete in the 1A D-I Region III playoff bracket.
