USA TODAY High School Sports is giving fans the opportunity to decide which boys basketball program is the best in the country.
Each state, as well as Washington D.C., will have five schools. The contest will start with 255 schools, with the overall strength of all the individual basketball programs as the criteria for inclusion.
Central, Corvallis, Jefferson, Jesuit and West Linn were chosen as the five schools to represent Oregon.
Learn more about the competition, including school selection criteria here.
You can vote once per day. The state round will last until January 20. The winner from Oregon will move on to a regional bracket. Voting for the regional round will occur from January 21-29. In the end, ten schools will move on to the national round. Voting for the national round will take place from January 30-February 9.
Vote for the school you believe is Oregon’s best boys basketball program! The national winner will win $1,000 and a banner honoring their distinction.
