Predictions for the OHSAA basketball state tournament Divisions I-IV

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.

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!
