Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) continued to move upward in the latest Super 25 Computer rankings for boys basketball, pushing from No. 4 to No. 2.

Chino Hills (Calif.) remains No. 1, with Montverde Academy (Fla.) and Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) is No. 5, having moved from No. 9 in the previous rankings.

The Super 25 Computer rankings are provided by Ken Massey. The ratings are designed to reward teams for their performance, and objectively quantify those performances. Strength of schedule is built into the model. The model also corrects for home field advantage. Teams lose less for a loss on the road and gain more for a win on the road. Margin of victory also is factored in. Because some of the data is based on past performances, the computer will be more accurate as the season progresses.

Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) is No. 6 with Houston Math Science and Tech, Saint Anthony (N.J.), Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.) and Klein Forest (Houston) rounding out the top 10.

La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.), the No. 1 team in the Super 25 Expert rankings, starts the second 10 followed by Garfield (Seattle), DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.), Shadow Mountain (Pheonix) and Maple Grove (Minn.).

Detroit Jesuit (Michigan) checks in at No. 16 followed by Foothills Christian (El Cajon, Calif.), Apple Valley (Minn.), Dekaney (Texas) and Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.).

The final five spots belong to Bishop Montgomery (Torrance, Calif.), Neumann-Goretti (Philadelphia), Omaha South (Neb.), DeSoto (Texas) and Overland (Aurora, Colo.).
