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.
