Northeast Ohio Boys Basketball Tournament Predictions

Sectionals begin Tuesday, Feb. 28 and Wednesday, Mar. 1 for all Northeast Ohio boys basketball teams.

Division II, III, and IV games begin on Tuesday night, while Division I tips off Wednesday.

As we get set for an action-packed tournament, here are my predictions for the districts involving Northeast Ohio schools in the Cleveland/Akron/Canton area.

At the end of the sectionals, I’ll be sure to update this post with how wrong I was. *My total records will be posted on page three at the end of the article, updated after each round*

If you’d like to take part in the challenge, e-mail your picks here.

Best of luck to all schools, and to players/coaches from the schools I chose to lose, feel free to throw it in my face if you win!

We’ll start with Division I and work our way down the list.

*Update 3/1 picks went 19-4 for Division I sectionals*
