Behind the #PBCHOOPSTOP5 11/29/20 and Week 2 Preview
Very little activity on a normally active Thanksgiving week holiday means no changes in the Private School #PBCHOOPS Top 5. Starting Monday however, all five teams will be in action. #1 faces a huge test Saturday as they head to Central Florida to face the #1 team in the USA, Montverde Academy. Locally three top 5 teams are playing in the same tournament. Definitely a separation week. Here's a look Behind This Weeks #PBCHOOPS Top 5:

#1 Saint Andrew's
The Scot's took care of business before the Thanksgiving holiday break, defeating a solid Archbishop Carroll team 81-65 at home behind big games from Devin Hines and Josh Minott. Saint Andrew's monster schedule continues as they battle the #1 team in country Montverde Academy Saturday night. This will be a test of all test for a Saint Andrew's squad that has made a habit taking on top level competition over the last year.
#2 Grandview Prep
Grandview Prep had the week off. Will play in Highlands Christian Holiday Tournament.
#3 Cardinal Newman
The Crusaders were off this week. Will play in Highlands Christian Holiday Tournament.
#4 King's Academy
The King's Academy opened up the regular season with a decisive victory over Morningside Academy. The test will come for the Lions down the line, in the meantime they continue to hold at #4.
#5 Jupiter Christian
Jupiter Christian opened up the regular season with a solid win over Saint John Paul II. The Eagles are solid top to bottom and have big chance to week to open eyes and move up the rankings as they play in Highlands Christian Holiday Tournament this week along with #2 Grandview Prep and #3 Cardinal Newman
BOYS PRIVATE SCHOOLS WEEK 2 PREVIEW
Monday November 30, 2020
North Broward Prep vs #2 Grandview Prep
This is a rematch of last seasons buzzer beater win by Grandview at North Broward Prep. Both teams look different then they did a year ago but are talented which should make for another close game in Boca.
Saturday December 5, 2020
#1 Saint Andrew's vs Montverde Academy
Easily the Game of the Year involving a Palm Beach County team. Montverde disposed of two class 3A contenders over the weekend and now await the boys from Boca to come to town. This should be a great game.
Highlands Christian Holiday Tournament
Thursday December 3, 2020 - Saturday December 5, 2020
This years Highlands Christian Holiday Tournament looks like it will be highly competitive. #2 Grandview Prep, #3 Cardinal Newman and #5 Jupiter Christian are all locked into a field that also includes host Highlands Christian, Saint John Paul and more. A couple of early round wins could set up Top 5 match-ups in the semifinals and championship game. Highlands will be the place to be this weekend for competitive hoops.
