The Kentucky high School basketball season has officially reached it’s mid-season point, and with a minimum of eight games played required to be considered, the KHSAA has it’s rebounding leaders (per game) through the end of 2017. PHKY reviews the top 10:
REBOUNDING LEADERS (Per Game)
Dalton Jewell (2018, Hickman County) – 13.0
A guard, Jewell has found a way to lead the state in rebounds per game. In Hickman County’s last game against Houston County (TN), Jewell finished with 20 boards. But that’s not all, he’s also leading Hickman County in points per game, averaging 23.6 a night.
Logan Thomas (2018, Union County) – 12.8
Thomas, a forward for the Braves, has consistently put up big rebounding numbers throughout the season thus far. His best rebounding night came in a 80-71 win against Caverna, where he grabbed 22 boards. He also leads Union County in scoring, averaging 20.5 per game.
Skyelar Potter (2018, Warren Central) – 12.7
The Wright State commit and guard from Warren Central has made himself a Mr. Basketball candidate mid-way through the season. His 25.4 points and 12.7 rebounds per game are eye-popping. Warren Central sits atop the 4th Region with an 11-2 record.
Trey James (2021, Sheldon Clark) – 11.9
At 6’10, James is making some noise as a must see prospect in Kentucky. With multiple D1 visits already, expect his stock to continue to rise at time goes on. James is also averaging 12.2 points per game.
Tahj Harding (2019, Newport) – 11.7
The junior forward has helped catapult Newport near the top of the region going into the new year. Harding is also averaging 16.1 points per game. Look for colleges to start taking notice.
Andrew Taylor (2018, Corbin) – 11.2
Mr. Everything, and another contender to win Mr. Basketball, Taylor does it all for Corbin. Which is why Furman is getting a player. Taylor has been a walking double-double for years now. He’s also averaging 27.6 points per game.
Dustin Geralds (2018, Madison Central) – 11.0
Geralds is going to be a steal for whatever college program picks him up. Undersized for his position, doesn’t matter. Geralds is the top rebounder on a team that features one of the state’s top big man prospect in Isaiah Cozart. He’s also Madison Central’s leading scorer, averaging just over 18 a game.
Reid Jolly (2018, Campbell County) – 10.8
A junior, Jolly has been a huge part of Campbell County’s 12-2 start. The Camels are a threat to win the 10th Region and make a run to the state tournament. Jolly is also Campbell County’s leading scorer, averaging 18.9 points per game.
Nick Keeton (2020, Paintsville) – 10.7
The Paintsville sophomore could average a double-double by the end of the season, we’re calling it. Averaging 10.7 rebounds and 8 points now, Keeton has helped lead Paintsville to a 10-3 season through the end of the year.
Will Philpot (2018, George Rogers Clark) – 10.5
Philpot is a force to be reckoned with in the 10th Region, averaging 10.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Against Perry County Central a few games back, Philpot scored 18 points and grabbed 17 boards.
Hale Sims (2018, St. Mary) – 10.5
St. Mary’s leading scorer (16.7) and rebounder. Sims is a player region one teams hate playing against.
Dontaie Allen (2019, Pendleton County) – 10.5
Allen does it all for Pendleton County. A workhorse with talent. Allen has a handful of D1 offers with more to come. He also averages 30 points per game.
