FloHoops' Top 25 Prep Rankings (Feb. 6)

© Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

With district, regional, and state titles awaiting several of the nation’s top teams, there is plenty of business left to take care of this next month, but it’s hard not to think about the possibility of competing for a national title as the first February rankings roll out.

No. 1 Montverde Academy (FL) and No. 2 Oak Hill Academy (VA) appear to be safe, no matter what, but it’s an intriguing race behind them. It’s time for teams to make a run and create some noise in their respective states to help their cases.

No squad has boosted its stock more these last two weeks than Sunrise Christian Academy (KS). Not only did the Buffaloes blaze through this past weekend’s St. James Invitational Tournament — taking down then-No. 4 Findlay Prep (NV) and then-No. 13 St. Benedict’s (NJ) — but they also beat No. 12 La Lumiere (IN) at the beginning of the season, which makes for an intriguing resume.

The national games are very limited at this point, too, and here is where everyone stacks up as the regular season winds down.
