FloHoops' Top 25 Prep Rankings (Jan. 30)

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.

Yes, Michael Devoe’s dagger in the Montverde Academy Invitational Tournament to keep the No. 1 Eagles undefeated saved a potential massive shuffle and debate at the top, but there is still plenty of season left to cause some major movement.

Where does Findlay Prep (NV) land after losing to Montverde? Where does Shadow Mountain (AZ) fall after losing to Findlay Prep? Find out in this new set of rankings before three squads put some major spots on the line at the St. James Invitational live on FloHoops.

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.
