Today we're proud to release the second annual JJHuddle All-Ohio Girls Basketball Teams. The teams feature five-player first, second and third teams and a special mention, honorable mention and “others receiving votes.” This is the best of the best.
The teams encompass all four Ohio high school divisions and were selected by a panel that includes the best in the business: Tom Jenkins (Ohio Girls Basketball Report), Mark Lewis (Blue Star Media) and Dan Olson (Collegiate Girls Basketball Report). A points system was used and a player’s collective career was taken into consideration (i.e. high school and club seasons).
