Milton Wright boys brought home their first ever state crown in overtime in Class 3A.  The New Town boys won their 3rd state title, with the last two back to back but in Class 2A this year after winning Class 1A last year.  The Class 1A state championship went to the Pocomoke boys for their 4th title.

     The MPSSAA extends congratulations to all of the schools that participated in this year's tournament and we appreciate your cooperation and support throughout.  Our sincerest gratitude to our State Basketball Committees led by Earl Hawkins and Lynette Mitzel as well as Tournament Directors Jeff Sullivan and Diane George for another outstanding job of planning these big events.   Our thanks also to the "team" of workers at each tournament site that helped to execute that plan.  Once again, we cannot thank the University of Maryland College Park and Towson University enough for their hospitality, cooperation, and support in working with us to provide first class facilities for our championships such as the Xfinity Center and SECU Arena.  We look forward to seeing everyone back on the hardwood next year!
