This high school basketball season will be incredibly unique, but one thing remains the same, teams are going to be competing for a state championship. In this article I’m going to be looking at what teams are the top contenders for the Division I state championship.

Archbishop Moeller: Moeller has long been waiting for this 2020-21 season, because of their dominant 2021 class. It’s still strong, but losing Will McCrackenWillMcCracken6'4" | SGHilton Head Island | 2021SC to an out of state transfer hurts. Logan DuncombLoganDuncomb6'9" | CMoeller | 2021State#74NationOH is a dominant post player and Alex WilliamsAlexWilliams6'5" | SFMoeller | 2021StateOH is one of the more productive wings in the state. Throw in high upside wings in Aidan NoyesAidanNoyes6'6" | SFMoeller | 2021StateOH and Evan MahaffeyEvanMahaffey6'6" | SFMoeller | 2022StateOH plus seniors Aidan TurnerAidanTurner6'0" | PGMoeller | 2021StateOH and Zachary GeorgeZacharyGeorge6'7" | CMoeller | 2021StateOH and the Crusaders are favorites to win another state title.

Gahanna Lincoln: I expect Gahanna to be the top team in the Columbus area this season. Gahanna was very successful last season but bowed out in the district final to Walnut Ridge. Sean JonesSeanJones6'0" | PGGahanna | 2022State#169NationOH and company are back and ready to go this season. Combine Jones with seniors Jarius JonesJariusJones6'5" | SFGahanna | 2021StateOH and Maceo WilliamsMaceoWilliams6'6" | CGahanna | 2021StateOH and Gahanna
