Conference Preview

As has been the tradition of the Player of the Week Poll in Louisiana, it’s a new record for most votes overall and most votes for a single player. This week’s winner Romin Williams (5’10 PG, Country Day, 2017) garnered well over 23,000 votes for a whopping 63.75% of the votes. The total vote count was over 36,500 for the week.

Williams has continued his hot play including 35 points against West St. John last night and it’s drawing the attention of college coaches as well. His play on both ends of the court coupled with the toughness to battle through any injury make him a very hot prospect at the point guard position. The scoring bump this season is something he predicted over the summer when we talked.

Shaviairre Murry (6’3 G/F, Haynesville, 2016) finished 2nd in voting with just over 12,000 votes after his big performance in the district match-up against Ringgold. The senior helps lead his team nightly to one of the teams to watch in Class 1A.

In 3rd place is Torez Kinchen (6’3 SG, Denham Springs, 2016) after his 26 points in the win over Episcopal. Camren Hare (6’3 SG, Hamilton Christian, 2017) and Roydell Brown (6’5 F, Helen Cox, 2016) finished 4th and 5th respectively.

Both players lost close ones in the HOF Classic in the Mini Dome but had impressive performances. Hare showed off his entire game versus Lutcher while Brown scored 33 of Cox’s 53 points against Christian Life.
