Hopefully, this forthcoming basketball season is as uneventful as last year was turbulent.  The TSSAA expanded boys basketball to four classifications and the Class A now features 78 teams.  Today we @PrepHoopsTN are detailing the most talented.

Recent Class A Champions

2021 Clay County
2020
2019 Columbia Academy
2018 Loretto
2017 Harriman

 

Most Talented AAAA Teams.

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.”
