With basketball season all wrapped up, Curt and Jake count down the top 10 local prep basketball games covered by WCT Sports on the season.

With 20 area teams all playing between 25 and 30 games in both boys and girls basketball, there was no shortage of action on the court during the 2016-17 local hoops season. With three local teams going to State and plenty of parity outside of that, that made for plenty of close and exciting games.

We have narrowed the list of games down to the top 10 contests of the season, although, because Tribune Sports couldn't make it to each and every game, in devising this list there was one caveat: we could only consider games that were covered by WCT Sports.

There were certainly more than plenty of great games and heart-pounding finishes, but there was not a good enough way to account for the multitude of those games that we could not get out to.
