The high school girls basketball season is upon us and will begin with games starting on January 26. The regular season has been shortened to 15 games and there will be no sectional and/or state playoffs this season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to spark public interest in local high school girls basketball, South Jersey Sports Zone has unveiled its inaugural Preseason All-South Jersey girls basketball teams. Here are the best players in South Jersey in 2021. Let’s see which names remain on the list at the end of the season and which new names emerge throughout the course of this abbreviated season. Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees.
