FloHoops' Top 25 Prep Rankings (Jan. 23)

As Montverde Academy (FL) and Oak Hill Academy (VA) took center stage at the ARS Rescue Rooter National Hoopfest in Tampa, FL, one thing became clearer than ever before: Those are the best two teams in the country, and it’s not even close.

Sure, both the No. 1 Eagles and No. 2 Warriors have played, and won, more meaningful games this season, but as the home stretch nears, what’s important is each took care of business and continues to do so no matter what.

While the hoops world will debate which squad is better, and there likely is a legitimate case for both teams, the only place it could be settled is at DICK’s Nationals. Just know Montverde, which hosts a star-studded tournament this weekend, and Oak Hill are in a league of their own while everyone else battles for the spots behind them.

EuroLeague Home-Court Advantage: Panathinaikos & Olympiacos Lead The Way

Fall Is For Basketball

Whether it’s due to the roaring of the crowd, reduced travel time, or shooting on familiar rims, home court advantage has always been said to play a major role in sports. There’s a reason teams in the NBA fight all season long to try and get a high seed and the home-court advantage that comes with it. But how much does a team playing at home matter in Europe? As the EuroLeague 2018-19 season gets geared up to start later this week, I thought it might be fun to take a look back at the 2017-18 season to see which teams performed most differently at home vs on the road.

How NCAA & EuroLeague Statistics Translate To The NBA, & What We Can Learn

A few weeks ago, we took a look at how well EuroLeague stats translated to the NBA, finding there to be a surprisingly strong relationship between success in the EuroLeague and success in the NBA across a player’s first two seasons. This was particularly the case with stats like three-point shooting, field goal percentage, rebounding, and block rates.
