Japhet Medor

No longer the unsung backup to top-shelf guard Trent Frazier (now at Illinois) at Wellington, Medor has spent his senior season at Lake Worth proving how well he can lead a team. The shifty 5-foot-9 Class of 2018 guard has an advanced level handle and scores the ball at will.

With a stepback jumper, a 3-point shooting acumen, and a knack for blowing by defenders and scoring at the rim, Medor is the offensive catalyst for this Lake Worth program. A pure passer, Medor has led the team with seven assists per game.

The 17-1 Trojans also lean on Medor for his vastly improved on-ball defense. He showed plenty of grit as a two-way threat during a 17-point performance in a 41-40 loss to Atlantic High School on Friday. With the win, Atlantic avenged a 79-74 OT loss from last month.

Avery Brooks

Possessing a smooth stroke from long range, Brooks has emerged into one of the best shooters in Palm Beach County this winter. He’s embraced a bigger role this season as a go-to source offensively.

Brooks had a 32-point performance against Atlantic last month, as well as a 26-point, 12 rebound during an 82-40 drubbing of American Heritage. Brooks is one of the team’s better rebounders and has piled up several double doubles this season.

Marques Spann

The athletic guard/forward has been a sturdy defender for the Trojans this season, leading the team in steals. He’s also got the bouncy, athletic and rim to rim game that aligns with the style Lake Worth coach Murray Smith enforces.

A combo guard who can play a little small forward, Spann is constantly in attack mode. He’s got a knack for attacking the rim and kick-starting the transition game.

Willie Razz

The gritty 5-foot-11 guard plays a lot bigger than he is. Razz is a surprisingly effective rebounder and slasher for his size, a guy who can turn in a pivotal play when you forget about him.
