There's no slowing down in the high school basketball season's home stretch. From Feb. 1-3, get ready for the St. James Invitational to bring some heat live on FloHoops.

The three-day tournament in Hagerstown, MD, will keep the rankings rocking to start February, headlined by No. 4 Findlay Prep (NV) and No. 14 St. Benedict's (NJ). Standing in their way for the invitational title are several top regional contenders, including Sunrise Christian (KS), Our Savior New American (NY), host Saint James (MD), Vashon (MO), and Riverdale Baptist (MD).



Right out of the gate, the SJIT sees one of its two top contenders in Sunrise Christian (KS) and OSNA (NY) face off in a survive-and-advance setting. Following that matchup, Saint James (MD) plays Benedictine Prep (VA), and No. 14 St. Benedict's Prep (NJ) — which could head into the SJIT undefeated — takes on Vashon (MO). St. Benedict's features 2019 Flo40 prospect Precious Achiuwa, a dominant 6-foot-9 forward who is getting better each time he steps on the court. 

Flo40 No. 4 Bol Bol and No. 4 Findlay Prep match up with Riverdale Baptist (MD) to end the opening round.

The tournament could potentially feature a FloHoops Top 25 showdown for the title between No. 4 Findlay Prep (NV) and No. 14 St. Benedicts Prep (NJ). However, when February fatigue sets in, it's anyone's game.

Just when everyone thought the top two spots were relatively well secured, that Montverde Academy (FL) and Oak Hill Academy (VA) were easily the best teams, it took wildness on the court in the form of a fourth-quarter comeback and a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to keep the rankings pretty quiet this week.
