Congrats to Maplewood High School Boys Basketball – Class AA State Champions!

Maplewood High School made history on Saturday, March 18 with the boys basketball team securing the Class AA State Championship, defeating Knoxville Catholic 60-57.

“This was the first boys basketball title for a Nashville Metro boys team since MLK won in 1996,” said Roosevelt Sanders, director of athletics for Metro Schools.

Interesting fact: Current Maplewood coach Ty Wilson was an assistant coach under James “Doc” Shelton for four of the seven years that Martin Luther King, Jr. Magnet High School went to the state tournament.

Maplewood was led by two-time Mr. Basketball Bo Hodges, who scored 18 points and seven rebounds in the championship game. He was also named the Class AA Tournament Most Valuable Player. Three Maplewood players, Hassan Littlepage, Robert Wilcox III, and Bobo Hodges, were named to the All-Tournament team.

This is a great win, not only just for Maplewood but for all of Metro Schools!

Go Panthers!
