The playoffs ended with an elite set of teams making up the Final 4. Saginaw Heritage edged an excellent Wayne Memorial team by a score of 58-55. Defending champ Saginaw Heritage won a tight contest against Muskegon. The score was 54-50. In the championship game Saginaw Heritage defeated a talented Southfield A&T squad 55-40, securing a state title for the 2nd straight year.
