Best show in the business
NBA veteran and Shadow Mountain (Phoenix) head coach Mike Bibby might have the most entertaining team in high school basketball. The Matadors jumped 16 spots all the way to No. 8 this week - and for good reason.
The 'Maniac' Matadors suffocating full-court defense leads the nation with 35 steals per game. Their uptempo, unselfish offensive style produces highlight-reel dunks and fans wanting more. Shadow Mountain has one of the best young teams in the nation with four underclassmen averaging double figures. Four-star Jaelen House (6'1''-G) and 3-star Jovan Blacksher (6'1''-G) form one of the best backcourts in America while combining for 20 steals per contest. The Matadors battle California heavyweights Chino Hills (Calif.) and Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) this weekend at the American Family Insurance Hoophall West.
Three new teams join the party
St. Benedict's Prep (Newark, N.J.) surprised some folks at the Marshall County Hoopfest in Kentucky over the weekend. Guard Lester Quinones dropped a game-high 38 points to spur a wowing 64-55 win over previous No. 15 Huntington St. Joseph Prep (W. Va.). The signature victory sprang the previously unranked Gray Bees to No. 22 this week.
Bishop Montgomery (Torrance, Calif.) might be the best defensive unit in America. The California defending Open Division state champs are allowing a paltry 34 points per game so far this season. The No. 23 Knights also captured the Trevor Ariza Westchester Tip-Off Classic title Saturday in California. This is all pretty impressive considering 3-star Gianni Hunt is still nursing an ankle injury.
University (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) rejoins the fray at No. 24 after a week out. Vernon Carey Jr., the nation's top overall junior, leads a loaded lineup.

Tournament to watch
The Houston Methodist Cy-Hoops Invitational is a must-see event this week. Sixth-ranked Cypress Falls (Houston), No. 17 Guyer (Denton, Texas) and Westlake (Austin, Texas) headline a star-studded, 24-team tourney that will truly determine the top team in Texas. Cypress Falls' 35-game winning streak is the longest of any team in the Top 25. Guyer knocked off previous No. 15 Westlake last week. The three-day event starts on Thursday. Buckle up!

On April 4, Cole Anthony (6'2''-PG-00) will lead Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) into the GEICO Nationals in New York to compete for the national title and he's looking for any competitive edge he can use to accomplish that goal. On Wednesday night he got that mental advantage, scoring 14 points, grabbing five rebounds and handing out seven assists to lead the East past the West 115-100 in the McDonald's All American Game at State Farm Arena.
