The District-1 5A Boys Basketball Championship game will be a tale of two different programs. The Chester Clippers will be trying to garner their 24th Championship while the Bayard Rustin Golden Knights are making their 1st Championship appearance. The last time the Clippers worn the crown was in 2014.

The Champion will move on to the State Championship tournament. Unfortunately for the loser, their season is over unlike previous years where they also would move forward to the State Tournament. Then again, this is 2020-2021 – the year of COVID-19.

The game is also historic because it will mark the 1st time the Championship game will be played on the Home court of one of the participants. With limited fans (players representatives) in attendance the Clip Joint will be rocking.
