There’s no shortage of good high school boys basketball programs. There are even dozens of great ones. But there can be only one No. 1 school in each of the 50 U.S. states, plus Washington, D.C. So, what’s the top hoops team in California? Florida? Texas?

Glad you asked.

What follows is a state-by-state look at the best high school boys teams in the good ol’ U.S. of A. (The A is for arenas, of course).  

The following alphabetical rundown, featuring the alma maters of current NBA stars such as Marvin Bagley III, is based on a MaxPreps sea-to-shining-sea overview that was compiled and published before the action heated up in the 2020-2021 season.

In addition to big-name schools, you’ll find top-rated recruits such as Bronny James, Caleb Houstan and Emoni Bates.

So, what’s your state’s top school? Lace up the sneakers, and let’s get going.
