All-state boys’ basketball teams for the 2021 season have been released. They are based on votes from coaches across the entire state and are compiled by CHSAA, MaxPreps and the Colorado Preps Network. We list the first and second teams in each of the five classifications.
Just more than two months ago, Season B officially started and this weekend will see champions crowned in all five classifications of boys basketball. Three titles will be earned on Saturday, with classes 2A, 3A, and 5A taking the court at the Broadmoor World Arena. Classes 1A and 4A get their time in the spotlight the following day. Each championship contest is previewed below.
Boys’ basketball playoffs are down to just 20 total teams still battling for a state championship. The teams match up in the state semifinals on Thursday with winners advancing the state championship game either Saturday or Sunday in Colorado Springs. Colorado Preps looks at each matchup and tosses in a few historical nuggets as well.
The delay in the schedule for the boys’ basketball state quarterfinals has given us time to look at each of the 20 contests at a glance. We go through each contest in each class with a couple of notes to remember as teams look to advance into the state semifinals on Thursday.
We've gotten word from CHSAA about changes in the post-season basketball schedule due to the winter storm still moving through the state. Great 8 games were slated for Monday and it will be up to schools to determine whether games are played on Monday or Tuesday. But all Great 8 (quarterfinals) must be finished by Tuesday March 16th.
Instead of providing a preview of the boys' basketball Great 8 matchups on Saturday, Colorado Preps will look at the state tournament history for all the teams involved. For our historical purposes, the state tournament involves the state quarterfinals, semifinals and championship matchups.
