FEATS OF THE WEEK: The Prep Poll is in a New York state of mind this week. Four of the Top 5 teams hail from the Empire State, led by new No. 1 Manhasset, St. Mary's. The Gaels are the third different team to hold the top spot this season. The teams ranked Nos. 2, 3, and 5 are New York heavyweights Niagara Falls; Queens, Christ the King; and New York, Rice. The quartet has combined to defeat 19 out-of-state opponents and five Top 25 teams . . . Bob Farrell of No. 18 West Orange, Seton Hall Prep became just the 10th New Jersey coach to win 600 games in an 82-48 rout of Mendham, West Morris. Farrell is 600-144 in 28 seasons. Senior guard Andrew Pusar notched his 1,000th career point on the same night . . . Ocala, Fla., Vanguard coach Jim Haley also picked up his 600th win, although he wasn't around to see it. Haley (600-353 in 32 seasons) missed the Knights' 55-48 win over Belleview because of the flu . . . Center Jason Bennett of No. 9 Jacksonville, Fla., Arlington Country Day had a triple-double in a 75-50 defeat of Jacksonville, University Christian. The 7-foot-3 junior scored 20 points with 16 blocked shots and 14 rebounds.
