The 2019 OHSAA boys basketball state championship weekend has come and gone and four more state champions were crowned on Saturday in the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.

If you have any comments about these articles make sure to tweet at me, @mikerothou and let me know what players I need to see during the summer, I will be trying to do some things with AAU season and summer camps and showcases.

It’s March Madness once again and I couldn’t be more excited for the first weekend of the tournament. The first two days of March Madness are probably my favorite days of the sports calendar every single year and hopefully, it lives up to the hype this time around. In this article, I will be previewing every first-round matchup with reasons why you should pick each team while also giving a pretty harsh critique of the selection committee sprinkled in throughout the article. (I’m not too pleased) Let me know what you guys think of this, I’m not posting a full bracket prediction but if you have any questions about filling out your bracket I’m more than able to help, I’ve won bracket pools and have plenty of analytics that can help you get the best chance to win your pool. For any further questions feel free to tweet or dm me, my twitter is @mikerothou
Final note, all team offensive, and defensive efficiency rankings will be coming from kenpom.com it is the best website by far, in my opinion, to look at advanced college basketball stats.

In this article I’m going to be giving an extensive breakdown of the playoffs for the 2019 season for OHSAA Boys basketball. I will have predictions for every division but I will have more in depth coverage on division I and Northeast Ohio because that’s the area I’ve seen the most this season. Any upset will simply be a lower seeded team beating a higher seeded team. Also, if you think I slept on a team let me know, there are so many teams I haven’t seen this season that I know are awesome, please tell me if your school falls under that category. Hope you enjoy and remember these are just my predictions, anything can happen and I cannot wait to watch these state playoffs as it will hopefully be insane as always. Continue Reading!
