Formerly the big school division, 3A is now filled with talented, ambitious programs.  The best teams are completely unknown at this point. Hopefully, this forthcoming basketball season is as uneventful as last year was turbulent. 

The last four state champions from 3A are now in the 4A classification.

Recent Class 3A Champions

2021 Houston
2020
2019 Bearden
2018 Memphis East
2017 Memphis East

 

How does this work?

The #1 player in the state, Brandon Miller Brandon Miller 6'8" | SF Cane Ridge | 2022 State #18 Nation TN gets 200 points.  The 200th best player in the state adds 1 point.

#1 = 200
#2 = 199
#3 = 198
#198 = 3
#199 = 2
#200 = 1

The format does not account for team cohesion or coaching impact or strength of schedule.  For these reasons and more, this will not be "Best Team"!  It will reveal the "Most Talented."
