The Circuit's Top 25 has been updated, and while only seven ranked squads were in action, there is still a bit of shake-up within the team rankings.

Phenom University stays at No. 1 after being idle, and moved to 16-0 after a 5-0 performance at the NY2LA Wisconsin Showdown the week before. Team Final remains firm at No. 2 after going 2-0 in their annual "Team Final Day" event, picking up wins over Team Final Black and Team Final Red. Their biggest addition didn't happen on the court, as 2022 No. 1 Emoni Bates announced he will be joining the squad. They aren't ranked No. 1 right now, but as far as pure talent goes, they are far and away No. 1.

Southeast Elite (12-4) joins the Top 25 for the first time this season, fresh off a convincing 5-0 run to win the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions. Head coach Anthony Ricks has his squad playing at a high level, and Ernest Udeh and Ven-Allen Lubin have proven to be one of the top duos in the country.

Middlesex Magic made the biggest jump after a 5-0 showing at the Zero Gravity Summit, and the New Heights Lightning returned to the Top 25 as they are now fully-healthy.

Check out the full rankings below, and make sure to tune into The Circuit League IV this weekend in Dallas.
