Illinois High School Basketball 2021-2022 State Champions

All games were played at a neutral site: University of Illinois' Assembly Hall in Champaign, Illinois.




Glenbard West Hilltoppers

Glenbard West defeats Whitney Young 56-34 to cap historic season and win Class 4A State Title

While this victory is the first state title and the first state finals appearance for the Hilltoppers, this team was special and they led Class 4A for the entire year. Their only loss came from a buzzer beater in front of a sold-out crowd against national powerhouse Sierra Canyon.

A Chicago Public League team had won the Illinois state title every season since Derrick Rose and Simeon won the AA title in 2006.



Sacred Heart-Griffin Cyclones

Springfield's Sacred Heart-Griffin beats Metamora in 2OT buzzer beater to win Class 3A State Title

KeShon Singleton’s almost lost the ball in the final seconds of the second overtime, but he was able to pick it up and make a turnaround 3-pointer to give the Cyclones a 53-50 win over Metamora in the Class 3A state championship.

It is Sacred Heart-Griffin's first state title.




:"Nashville

Nashville beats Monticello 32-31 to win the Class 2A State Championship

Nashville trailed by as much as 6 points in the final minutes of the game, but went on a 7-0 run to win the title.

The Hornets lost in the state title game in 2019.



:"Yorkville

Yorkville Christian defeats Liberty 54-41 to win Class 1A

There has never been a Duke recruit from Illinois' Class 1A until Yorkville Christian's Jaden Schutt. That made them the favorite to win the state title this year and, sure enough, they did.

In the tournament, they beat opponents by an average of 44 points, but Liberty played them tough in the state final, leading at halftime, but couldn't hang on.
