For the second season in a row, a public high school hosts the consensus best boys team in the United States. With 29 wins and no losses, the 2016-17 champ Nathan Hale High School from Seattle follows Chino Hills of California (2015-16: 35-0). Nathan Hale is coached by former NBA player Brandon Roy and led by Gatorade player of the Year Michael Porter. Seven transfers, including Porter, were essential for a transformation from a 2015/16 team with 3 wins and 18 losses.

Nathan Hale has declined an invitation to participate in the Dick's National High School tournament scheduled for New York City from March 30th though April 1st. The eight Dick's participants will battle for second best recognition.
