The 2018-19 season is underway and as all of our 6A league previews have been posted, it’s time to take a look at our statewide projections for the Top 10 and the All-State teams.

Top 10 Teams

1. Jefferson – Runner-ups last year are the deepest and most talented team in the state
2. Grant – Defending champs have talent and depth, but lack size
3. Lake Oswego – The Lakers have solid shooting and depth at all positions
4. Barlow – After making a surprise run to state last year, the Bruins are now favorites
5. Southridge – Brock Henry and Zach Galvin could be the top backcourt tandem in the state
6. Jesuit – As usual, the Crusaders will be well coached and will play hard
7. West Linn – A lot of players who can score on the roster, can they defend?
8. Central Catholic – Youthful and talented, but can it all mesh together?
9. South Salem – Led by Skinny, the Saxons have the potential to make a long run
10. Tigard – The Tigers have offensive threats led by Schlabach, how will they defend?

Others to Watch: Bend, Sheldon, South Eugene

State Title Game Projection

Jefferson vs Grant

After four epic matchups last season and at least two more in 2018-19, it will come down to the Demos vs. the Generals again and this time, Jefferson gets their revenge and the state title back.
