The Minnesota Jr. Rolling Wolves overtook the No. 1 position in the country for the March NWBA Junior Varsity Rankings, and have secured the top seed for the 2016 NWBA National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament presented by ABC Medical, set for Louisville, Ky., April 7-10. The Rolling Wolves were ranked No. 3 last month. 

Coming off an impressive weekend, the Atlanta BlazeSports Jr. Wheelchair Hawks were propelled into the No. 2 position, with the Houston TIRR Hotwheels sliding into third. The previous No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams, Phoenix Jr. Sun and Dallas Jr Mavericks, have fallen into fourth and fifth, respectively. 

Closing out the top 10 teams are Rancho Renegandes at No. 9, who were previously No. 12. The Turnstone Flyers made the most noise in upward moves to No. 10 after being 15th last month. 

The top 16 teams in the Junior Varsity Rankings receive an automatic invite to the 2016 NWBA NWBT, while the No. 17-32 ranked teams earn an invite to the 2016 NWBA National Invitational Tournament, also held in conjunction with the National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament.
