The first Super 25 boys basketball rankings of the new year will be released Monday.

After a jam-packed schedule of holiday tournaments and high-profile matchups, who will be No. 1?

Here are five teams that could be in position to move to the top spot:

* Roselle (N.J.) Catholic: The Lions are 9-0 and are coming off a dominating victory against The Patrick School in a rematch of the last two New Jersey Non-Public B title games. Led by Kentucky signee Isaiah Briscoe and South Carolina signee Chris Silva, the Lions have one of the top tandems. Roselle Catholic has played the fewest games of the top teams because New Jersey has one of the later start dates. Teams in the Garden State are not allowed to practice until Nov. 28.

* Wheeler (Marietta, Ga.): Led by Jaylen Brown, the No. 2 senior in the country, Wheeler is 15-1. The lone loss was 70-62 in the semifinals of the Les Schwab Invitational to defending Oregon 8A championship West Linn (Ore.).  Among Wheeler’s victories is a 72-65 triumph over two-time defending national champion Montverde (Fla.) Academy in the championship game of the City of Palms in Fort Myers, Fla.

* Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.): No. 4 in the previous rankings, Findlay Prep is 16-0 and averaging 94 points per game. Arizona signee Allonzo Trier is averaging nearly 29 points per game and Derryck Thornton Jr. is averaging nearly 18 points per game.

* Montverde (Fla.) Academy: Led by LSU signee Ben Simmons, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2015, the Eagles are 19-1 with the lone loss coming to Wheeler. After that loss, Montverde won the Les Schwab Invitational in Oregon and also the Sugar Bowl Classic in New Orleans.  Simmons had a season-high 39 in the title game in New Orleans.

* Fairfax (Los Angeles): The Lions are 14-0 and coming off a victory in the Huntington Park tournament. Fairfax also won the Under Armour Holiday Classic in San Diego with a victory against Redondo Union. Lorne Curie was named the MVP in San Diego.
