JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - COVID-19 left the 3A, 4A, 5A, & 6A state basketball finals in limbo for nearly a month.

- West Memphis (5A Boys - first state championship since 2005)
- Rivercrest (3A Boys - first state championship since 2011)
- Osceola (3A Boys - first state championship since 2002)
Arkansas State basketball signee Caleb London will also be recognized as a state champion. He was integral to Conway reaching the 6A Boys Finals.
The AAA will have an update on spring sports (baseball, softball, track & field, soccer) at a later date.
