STATE CHAMPS! picks the 2021 MHSAA boys basketball district winners

By: MATTHEW B. MOWERY, March 23, 2021, 5:14 pm

Like we’ve done in the past, and back in the fall for football, we’re going to take a stab at picking the winners in each of the 128 boys basketball districts. As of now, we only have two entrants in the contest — digital managing editor Matthew B. Mowery and director of social media David Bodine (executive producer Lorne Plant’s picks are coming, which is why there’s a spot saved) — but we’ll add the others, if they get in on the game. We’ll tally how we do throughout the postseason run, and pick each round, as we go.
