Our first portion of the 2013-14 all-state teams for boys basketball (which marks the 36th year we’ve been doing them) highlights the best among juniors, sophomores and freshmen. Two families – the Thompsons and the Balls – should be especially happy about them.

Note: We’ll have an inside look at this year’s boys basketball all-state team posted after all of the teams are chosen, including names of other players who just missed. That post plus our various player rankings for the Class of 2014, Class of 2015 and Class of 2016 and Class of 2017 are for Gold Members only. To sign up for a Gold Club membership, CLICK HERE.
