I have been watching games despite all the things I went through from February till now. It’s the thing that keeps me going. Not watch all the time and maybe not as much but I will be. I’m not going to post box scores like I did last year, besides taking a lot of space it takes much more time, since I like to use colors. I’m going to start posting state by state the ratings, I did with lots of help and list the games I saw on those teams that are rated. I did do more this year, going to 10 teams as much as possible.

 ================================================
FULL GAMES FOR TEAMS THAT PLAYED IN LARGE SCHOOL STATE FINALS I COULD NOT WATCH ON THE INTERNET OR TV. I also went through state-by-state and tried to watch the 3 to 10 best teams in each state depending what strength the state had. Saw very interesting games. USA Today does a computer Top 25 in every state and for the most part it is pretty accurate. So I would look at that, MaxPreps and some states did final overall ratings to come up with mine for each state. I really won’t mention where the ratings come from state-by-state since I just went over it here.

MAINE
Added a fifth class this year and Portland who won A last year moved up and won AA this year and was again the #1 team in the state. #1 Portland 22-1, #2 Greely 22-1, #3 Stevens Academy 22-0, #4 Edward Little 18-2, #5 Winthrop 21-1, #6 Mount Desert Island 19-3, #7 Machias 21-1, #8 Thornton Academy 17-3, #9 Orono 17-4, #10 Hermon 18-3…On March 4 Portland was seen winning the AA state title over South Portland. Greely was seen winning the A state title over Messalonskee. Stevens Academy was seen winning the Class C state title over Winthrop. Edward Little was seen in the AA North Regional final losing to Portland. Desert Island was seen winning the B state title over Wells. Machias was seen in the D state final defeating Greenville. Thornton Academy was seen losing to South Portland in the AA South Region title game. Orono was seen winning over Hermon in the B North Semifinal.

NEW HAMPSHIRE
#1 Portsmouth 22-2, #2 Lebanon 21-1, # 3 Winnacunnet 20-5, # 4 Bedford 18-4, # 5 Spaulding 17-4, #6 Kearsarge Regional 20-2, # 7 Coe-Brown Academy 18-4, # 8 Milford 19-2.….Portsmouth won another state title defeating Bedford for the Division 1 championship. Portsmouth was also seen defeating #3 Winnacunnet in the Division 1 semifinal. Lebanon beat Coe-Brown for the Division 2 championship seen below. Bedford was also seen defeating #5 Spaulding in the other Division 1 semifinal. Kearsarge was seen winning the Division 3 State Championship. Coe Brown was seen beating Milford in the Division 2 Semifinals.

VERMONT
#1 Rutland 22-2, # 2 Champlain Valley 22-2, # 3 Enosburg Falls 24-0, # 4 Burlington 18-5, # 5 Williamstown 22-1, # 6 South Burlington Rice Memorial 14-8, # 7 Missisquoi 18-5, #8 Mount Mansfield 13-9, # 9 St. Johnsbury 13-9 # 10. Rutland Mount St. Joseph 18-6.….On March 13, Rutland defeated Champlain to win the Division 1 State Championship. It was their first state title in 50 years. Enosburg completed an undefeated season winning the Division II state title over Rutland Mount St. Joseph seen right here. Burlington was seen losing a very close 41-38 game to Rutland in the Division I semifinals. Williamstown was seen winning the Division III state title. Missisquoi was seen losing to Champlain Valley in the Division I semifinals. Saw Rice Memorial lose to Missisquoi, Mount Mansfield lose to Rutland and St. Johnsbury lose to Champlain Valley, all in the Division 1 quarterfinals. That meant that I saw Rutland and Champlain Valley’s games in the quarterfinals, semifinals and championship game.

MASSACHUSETTS
# 1 Cambridge Rindge & Latin 25-0, #2 Boston Brighton 23-5, # 3 Needham 22-6, # 4 Boston College High 20-3, #5 Franklin 21-5, #6 Springfield Central 19-3, #7 Mansfield 20-3, #8 Maynard 24-4, #9 Lawrence Central Catholic 20-6, # 10 Everett 19-2.….On March 18, I saw Cambridge Ringe & Latin win their second consecutive Division 1 State Championship with a 70-43 win over Franklin. Boston Brighton won the Division 2 title with an equally impressive 82-58 win over Nashoba Reg. Brighton beat two strong teams in Arlington and Lynn Classical to reach the state semifinals and both were seen below. Only game I could find on Boston College High was an 88-85 loss to Boston Catholic Memorial. Saw Springfield Central blow an eight-point lead in the 10 seconds in the final 15 seconds of the game and lose to Franklin in overtime. Saw Mansfield defeat Bridgewater-Raynham in the Division 1 South semi-finals. Saw Maynard win the Division 4 State Championship. Saw Central Catholic defeat Lynn English in first round of Division 1 North Section. Only game I could find on Everett was a loss to Lynn Classical in January.

RHODE ISLAND

Pleasant 17-7, Narragansett 20-4, Cumberland 21-6.….If they ever did, Rhode Island no longer considers their Division Tournaments as State Tournament’s and doesn’t live stream any of those games, so all you could watch is the four teams that make the final four of the state tournament. Shea was a Division 2 team and the other three were all D-1 schools…..In the state final on March 19, Bishop Hendricken defeated Shea for the title. The semifinals where Hendricken defeated North Kingstown and Shea defeated St. Raphael were both seen below.

Thanks to Time Warner Cable who doesn’t allow anyone to even pay to watch games on their website, there is no seeing either the AA State final nor the NY Federation Championship. Lincoln was first seen back on December 28, losing to Whitefield Academy, GA losing 68-66 in the TOC Classic @ Wheeler High School, GA. I saw them below defeating Thomas Jefferson in the PSAL AA City Championship. They then went on to win the AA Federation State title over Long Island Lutheran, which could not be seen.

PENNSYLVANIA
The state went to six classes this year. The real highlight to the season was that the states only 2000 game winner, Reading, at 2097 won their first ever state championship taking the 6A crown. Philadelphia schools won three more state titles. No one did a rating of all schools, as I didn‘t do any this year so I tried to put together a Top 10 for this page. Except for the top four teams who won 3A, 4, 5A and 6A teams really moved around from where they were during the regular season…..#1 Philadelphia Imhotep Charter, #2 Philadelphia Archbishop Wood. #3 Philadelphia Neumann-Goretti, #4 Reading 32-3, #5 Philadelphia Archbishop Ryan 23-6, #6 Plymouth-Whitemarsh 25-6, #7 Pine-Richland 28-2, #8 Carlisle 21-9, #9 Erie Strong Vincent 27-4, #10 Meadville 26-2.

Again Time Warner hordes them away on a website where you can see they are there but you can’t watch them unless you get their Cable. You can call them and they just pass you on to someone else. This could happened three, four times. Very few people do full game videos. But I was able to watch the two best teams , SW Guilford play Butler in the 4A semifinals a 61-58 win for SW. On March 11, I saw highlight video of SW winning the 4A State Championship 73-47 over Leesville Road. Saw video of West Forsyth winning the Frank Spencer Holiday Classic, 70-57 over Winston-Salem Prep.

Thanks, I figured you would want to see. I did think about the box scores, but it holds me up to much. And the teams I watched will all be listed, not always with scores though unless I go back and add them. When I start posting them they will probably start on the top of this thread.

That is, was a very very strange situation. The former coach Steve Bak who went to LA Fairfax this year was going to their playoff games and told reporters LaVar is often misquoted. He said he was like that with me but we were very good friends and our families visited all the time. He also said the media read into it to much and gave him a stage to talk on and they should not have done that. It wonders me if he may go back. They only lose two players and have some awesome sophomores. Also the  6th man in 15-16 left for another school because he wanted to start and averaged over 20 as a junior and may come back home.

Just wonder what Lonzo thinks. Lavar said a few weeks ago, he planned this 18 years ago when he hand picked his wife to have three 6-7 sons who can make him $100,000,000.

There was an hour video on that video above that shows Lonzo saying all the things and wearing the shoes to run up the mountains in Chino Hills saying him and his brothers planned this all there lives.

BUT I STILL THINK IT IS FAKE. I heard him talking on interviews to many times to believe he would do such a turnaround. Well that's all I'm going to say on this topic. Want to try and get down to North Carolina on Sunday unless something goes through I'm working on with Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia which would give me about 10 more games to watch there. Many of which I've seen full game highlights already but these would be full games.

LOUISIANA
#1 Baton Rouge Scotlandville 31-3, #2 Baton Rouge Madison Prep 34-3,  #3 Alexandria Peabody 35-3, #4 Lake Charles Washington Marion 29-4, #5 New Orleans De LaSalle 30-4, #6 Shreveport Woodlawn 28-6, #7 Baton Rouge University Lab 31-4, #8 East Ascension 26-7, #9 Lafayette Christian #10 New Orleans Landry-Walker 22-13…..Louisiana crowned 12 state champions this year. They wanted to separate Catholic/Charter schools from Public. There were 5 Divisions for the Catholic/Charter schools, but they also included elite Public schools and Public schools that had some magnet students. Well Public schools played in all 5 Division championship games and won two of them. As for the Public schools there were seven classes ranging from 5A to Class C. There is some word they may scrap in the near future. There were some over matched games. One final score being 134-32 and least five 90+ point wins and this is in the state tournament games…..
