Our final North Suncoast basketball rankings of the regular season.

1. Nature Coast (20-3): Carlos Clemente and the Sharks haven’t lost since December. The top three spots remain close, but NCT’s hot streak gives it the edge heading into districts.

2. Wesley Chapel (20-4): Senior star Erik Thomas will likely score his 2,000th career point tonight. But can he lead his Wildcats to a win over crosstown rival Wiregrass Ranch?

3. Wiregrass Ranch (19-5): A 15-point win over Hudson and Rico Kerney’s 1,500th career point have the Bulls feeling good heading into Pasco County’s biggest game of the year.

4. Mitchell (17-7): The bad news: The Mustangs have lost two of their past three. The good news: Mitchell won’t have to play Wesley Chapel or Wiregrass Ranch again and holds the top seed in next week’s Class 6A, District 10 tourney.

5. Hudson (11-13): Forget the losing record. Zack Petersen, Bryce Durham and the Cobras are better than their record suggests and seem ready for a playoff run.

6. Hernando (16-7): A game-winning 3-pointer by Giovanni Perez against Pasco bumps the Leopards up a spot with three victories in their last four games.

7. Anclote (13-9): Chris Palamidis and the Sharks have won seven of their past nine games, only falling to Hudson and Nature Coast.

Next two out: Gulf (11-10 with a five-game win streak) and Ridgewood (14-9 under first-year coach Derek Delgardo)
