2021 State Championship Predictions

Wow we finally made it here after not knowing we would even have a season we at at the last weekend of the season. Only 12 games left of girls basketball to determine who the best of the best are! Big shoutout goes out to LHSAA and pulling this off for our girls this season as over half the state started late and several are still not playing high school basketball even now. I know myself personally really needed this season to help myself and my team get through this global pandemic both physically but more importantly mentally. I'm sure they have taken a lot of heat over the past 12 months but my hat goes off the all the administration involved in pulling off the year of sports for all of our student athletes we really needed this more than ever! So with that being said it's championship weekend so lets get to some predictions, keys and players to watch out for.... we have several familiar teams and familiar faces as many of the teams are back in the hunt from last year!


Class 5A State Championship Game

#12 Benton vs #6 Captain Shreve

Date: March 6th, 2021

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: University Center (Southeastern) - Hammond, LA

Key Players to Watch:


2021 Jada Anderson - ULM Signee / Ranked #16

2022 Riley Grace Standford - Ranked #16

2022 Jada Stewart - Honorable Mention

2022 Ella Kate Malley - Honorable Mention

Captain Shreve

2021 Addison Martin - Abilene Signee / Ranked #4

2021 Kiayra Ellis - Arkansas State Signee / Ranked #15

2021 Jordan Mclemore - Captain Shreve Signee / Ranked #24

Prediction: Captain Shreve wins in a close one.

It's clear district 1-5A is the toughest district as here we are another year the class 5A state champion will come from this district. These teams have already matched up once with Benton winning a back and forth game 39-37 and the second round of district being cancelled due to Covid. I can't start now by picking the underdog and jinxing them but I'll just be a fan of this game as these two great programs compete on the main stage as the last game of the year and they surely will not disappoint!
