By Jim Harris, 01/26/21, 11:45AM EST


MaxPreps has made of list of the All Time best basketball teams by state and the 1977 Titans Basketball team are the Virginia representative.

Here are their Highlights:

T.C. Williams (Alexandria)
Year: 1977
Coach: Mike Hynson
Record: 28-0
Top players: Craig Harris (all-state).
Note: While T.C. Williams might be more famous for "Remember the Titans" football fame, the basketball team from 1977 ranks as Virginia's best team. The Titans defeated William Fleming 95-63 in the state finals. The Titans averaged 84 points per game in giving Alexandria its first state championship since 1945 when George Washington, the team that consolidated with T.C. Williams in the late 1960s, won the title.

The teams were selected based on overall record (unbeaten teams preferred), win streaks, national rankings, multiple state championships, coaching resume and All-America and all-state players. Independent programs were not included, thus no Montverde Academy in Florida or Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.
