By Maria Hickey, KWMU

St. Louis, MO. – USA Today has ranked the Vashon High School Boys Basketball team number one in the country this week.

The St. Louis public school is 17-0 this season and has won 49 consecutive games.

Coach Floyd Irons says it's an honor for more than his basketball team.

"Naturally I'm excited for the students of Vashon High School and for the St. Louis Public Schools to get this kind of recognition," Irons said.

Irons has coached for more than 30 years.

Although Vashon High has been ranked in the top 25 of USA Today, it's the first time they've been ranked number one.
