What would be the spread? I do know that the best high school team would be favorites against a division 3 team. Or am i wrong here?


What a best high school team be favored against the worst division II team? Remember, some of these top high school teams in the nation have lottery picks and will play in division one and most likely play in the NBA and almost all division 2 players rarely would make the nba and very few got scholarship to division 1 school.


Could the best high school team in the nation beat the worst division 2 team? What about the best division 2 team? Could they beat the worst division 1 team such as Towson?

Saw this in the way of would the ncaa football champion be able to compete with the worst NFL team, one of the talking heads pointed out that at best, a half-dozen or so of that ncaa team would likely go on to make a starting nfl team leaving most of the remaining ncaa team at a skill level far below the worst of the nfl. Wouldn't expect much different in any of your basketball scenarios either.

That's the point though that the best at that level is better than the worst at the next level, so that is why in some scenarios the lower level would win.

Yeah, but in his example....the best HS team probably has 2-3 guys going to play for a good Div 1 program and the other 2 guys are likely going Div 2-3.

There are some pretty ****-poor Div 3 schools and ones that don't do scholarships really and just rely on student athletes and so on and so forth.

The NFL has parity and there isn't the spread in quality you see from say a KU or Duke down to a low-rent Div 3 school who has a center that is about 6'6.

If the OP said against a Div 1 school then that would change things alot but even still North Carolina Central University is Div 1 and has a 3-22 record.

NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE - Men's Basketball

They lost by 19 to Carver Bible College.

I would take the #1 rated HS team in the country against NCCU.

I think it's a no brainer. The best high school team in the nation could beat the worst DIVISION 1 college team. They would destroy the worst D-#III, maybe the worst D-II team.

There are a lot of pretty mediocre college teams out there. As was said before, a top flight high school team has several D-1 studs on the team. This would be more than a non scholarship D-III team could dream of competing against. Even D-I has been watered down somewhat over the last 10 years with programs that used to be mediocre D-II's.

The worst college team will win. No doubt about it.

Carver Bible College is pretty tough. It's hard to beat a team when God is always on their side.
