Games don't count in preseason but every time a team chooses to lace them up or in some cases not, the opportunity to evaluate is present. Last week several teams impressed in their preseason tip-off debuts, while others used them more as a true warm-up. 5 teams stood out and looked like the best, this week. From the looks of it the rankings will change many times this season.

Here's a look Behind This Weeks #PBCHOOPS Top 5:

#1 Martin County

Martin County starts the regular season off at #1, prime for several tough battles on its schedule ahead that feature top teams from all over South Florida. The #1 ranking won't take long for it to be tested as the Tigers head to Broward this weekend..

#2 Wellington

Wellington finished it's preseason 2-0 with wins over Dwyer and Palm Beach Lakes. The Wolverines are familiar with being in the top 5 and the extra motivation it provides opponents.

#3 Jupiter Christian

The Eagles cruised through it's preseason tip-off with wins over Palm Beach Central and John I Leonard. The Eagles have been feasting on Palm Beach County opponents during the fall and preseason, a trip to Broward Friday night will be a welcome change,

#4 Dwyer

The Panthers drop from preseason #1 to #4 after going 1-1 last week, No need for panic, Dwyer is still Dwyer.

#5 Cardinal Newman

The Crusaders shoot into the #5 spot after an impressive two game preseason season defeating Miami Northwestern and Ransom Everglades.
