Findlay College Prep (Henderson, Nev.) And Montverde (Fla.) Retain Top Two Positions; Then-No. 14 Whitney Young (Chicago) Rounds Out Top Three In USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 Boys Basketball Rankings

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Findlay College Prep ( Henderson, Nev.) and Montverde (Fla.) continue to hold down the top spots in the USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 national editorial rankings for boys basketball for the week of January 7, 2013.

 The USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 rankings appear in today's print edition of USA TODAY Sports and are also available online at USA TODAY High School Sports ( www.usatodayhss.com).

The USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 is now in its 30 th year as the most prestigious high school ranking platform in the nation. Gatorade is the Official Fuel of the Super 25 rankings platform, which includes computer rankings of every major high school football, baseball, boys and girls basketball and boys and girls lacrosse team in the nation.

Following a holiday hiatus, the biggest shakeup in the first Super 25 of 2013 comes from then-No. 14 Whitney Young (Chicago), which advanced to No. 3 in this week's rankings.  Whitney Young defeated then-No. 4 Chester (Pa.) in the Dec. 18-23 City of Palms Classic tournament, knocking the team to the No. 22 spot in this week's Super 25. 

Then-No. 7 Lone Peak ( Highland, Utah) also defeated Chester at City of Palms and jumped to the No. 5 position in this week's Super 25, while then-No. 3 Huntington (W. Va.) fell to the No. 4 position following a loss to then-unranked Prime Prep Academy (Dallas), debuting at No. 13 in this week's rankings.

Despite an undefeated in-state record, then No. 12 Southwind Academy (Memphis) fell to the No. 20 position in this week's rankings, following losses at City of Palms to Lone Peak and then-No. 5 Long Beach Poly ( Long Beach, Calif.), this week's No. 9 team.

Previously unranked La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) debuted on this week's Super 25 in the No. 8 position, thanks to a runner-up finish in the Iolani Classic behind No. 1 Findlay Prep, as well as its defeat of then-No. 6 Oak Hill Academy ( Mouth of Wilson, Va.)— the No. 10 team in this week's rankings.

In addition to Prime Prep Academy and La Lumiere, seven other previously unranked teams made their first appearances in this week's Super 25: No. 14 Lake Oswego (Ore.), No. 16 Bishop Montgomery ( Torrance, Calif.), No. 17 Midwest City (Okla.), No. 19 St. John Bosco ( Bellflower, Calif.), No. 23 Bishop O'Connell ( Arlington, Va.), No. 24 Olympic ( Charlotte, N.C.) and No. 25 Pershing (Detroit).
