Each month, ESPN RISE will rank the top prep basketball team's in each area. Here are the top five teams for the Greater Cincinnati area.

1. Princeton Princeton is loaded with the trio of Orlando Williams, Marquis Horne and Jordan Sibert and could be ready for a trip past the sweet 16.

2. Loveland With Indiana-bound senior Bobby Capobianco (20.9 ppg, 11.7 rpg) in the mix, Loveland should be an exciting team in the region.

3. Chillicothe On the heels of a thrilling overtime win in the Division II state finals, senior Seth Dawes and the Cavs are in search of consecutive titles.

4. Centerville The catalyst of a potent Elks attack is 6-foot-10 senior Matt Kavanaugh, who led Centerville into the district championships last winter.

5. Aiken Up-and-coming star Chane Behanan (a Cincinnati recruit) and senior Darren Goodson (Bowling Green) should help Aiken contend.
