Best State for High School Basketball

Alright, what's the first state that comes to mind when thinking about elite high school boys basketball?


New York with Rice, Lincoln and Boys and Girls representing?


New Jersey? Can't forget about St. Patrick, St. Benedict's or St. Anthony. 




Pennsylvania? One name: Kobe Bryant. 




Virginia? Oak Hill Academy has launched more NBA careers than the entire state of Wisconsin (don't hold me to that one, though). 




Texas? How bout Duncanville and Hightower leading the way.




Indiana? Come on now, Hoosier hoops. Larry Bird. Great teams like Lawrence North. 




California? From Oakland to San Diego, the talent never ends. Mater Dei out of Santa Ana is the BasketballPower preseason #1.











For me, I think it's either New York or Pennsylvania where there is so much talent across the board. Especially so after reading "The Last Shot" by Darcy Frey about playground ball and high school kids trying to make it big, citing Stephon Marbury and Lincoln High.
