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 McCracken Will McCracken 6'4" | SG Hilton Head Island | 2021 State SC to an out of state transfer hurts. Logan Duncomb Logan Duncomb 6'9" | C Moeller | 2021 State #74 Nation OH is a dominant post player and Alex Williams Alex Williams 6'5" | SF Moeller | 2021 State OH is one of the more productive wings in the state. Throw in high upside wings in Aidan Noyes Aidan Noyes 6'6" | SF Moeller | 2021 State OH and Evan Mahaffey Evan Mahaffey 6'6" | SF Moeller | 2022 State #208 Nation OH plus seniors Aidan Turner Aidan Turner 6'0" | PG Moeller | 2021 State OH and Zachary George Zachary George 6'7" | C Moeller | 2021 State OH 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 Jones Sean Jones 5'11" | PG Gahanna | 2022 State #177 Nation OH and company are back and ready to go this season. Combine Jones with seniors Jarius Jones Jarius Jones 6'5" | SF Gahanna | 2021 State OH and Maceo Williams Maceo Williams 6'6" | C Gahanna | 2021 State OH and Gahanna
