Some of the top shooters from beyond the arc can be spotted in 5A SIC, and the list below of players can certainly light it up from downtown on any given outing. Not only do the players listed below have the volume in three point field goals made, but they have some impressive averages in doing so as well. Thanks to our friends at idahoops.com we can take a closer look at each of these prospects whom rank in each of our class rankings which were just recently updated.
These sharpshooters will look to be impact players moving toward district tournaments and end of regular season action. As games intensify, having a spot up guy like some of these prospects below is invaluable, and will make these teams’ offensive sets even more difficult to deal with as none of these marksmen should be left alone from deep. Check out the top three point shooters in 5A SIC below.
Jake Poulton, Columbia
Currently our top ranked 2019 player, Jake Poulton has been fond of the triple this season as he has the most attempts in all of 5A SIC with 134. Poulton has the green light and is not hesitant to launch it. While shooting 32.8% through 14 games, Poulton leads all 5A SIC in three pointers made as well with 44 total. Poulton’s offensive skillset is notable and in those 14 games he is averaging 17.8 points per game while also handing out 3.0 assists per game.
His team has struggled to put together wins this season, but an intriguing schedule left against teams such as Boise, Borah, and Mountain View should give Poulton plenty of motivation to put up solid games against stiff competition.
Javen Woodall, Meridian
Another 2019 prospect, Javen Woodall isn’t far behind the 5A SIC leader in three point field goals made Jake Poulton, as Woodall has cashed in 40 in 14 games to go along with a 42.6% from deep. In fact, Meridian will play Columbia to close out the regular season in which we could see these two trade three point shots back and forth all game. In his 14 games, Woodall averaged 12.9 points per game as he remains a great offensive weapon for head coach Jeff Sanor at Meridian.
Parker Olson, Capital
Coming off a tough three game skid, Olson and Capital will look to get things straightened out against Centennial tonight at home where Olson should feel plenty comfortable from beyond the arc. In 15 games, Olson ranks third overall in three point field goals attempted and third in three pointers made with 37. Through 15 games, Olson averaged 11.5 points per game and is a steady force for points for his Capital Eagles team as a senior.
Andy Ford, Timberline
Timberline has struggled to chalk up wins this year but it hasn’t been because of a lack of three point tries from their 2019 guard Andy Ford, whom is averaging 15.0 points per game and has drilled 36 three pointers in 15 games this season. We will see if Ford can up some of his averages to end the season, but he is certainly one to watch when he pulls up from downtown.
Tyler O’Donnell, Rocky Mountain
One of the top players in the entire state for the 2018 class, O’Donnell can do a little bit of everything on the court for Rocky Mountain, who remains a beast at the 5A level and more specifically 5A SIC. O’Donnell has converted on 35 three point attempts, good enough to place him 5th overall in 5A SIC and is also averaging 15.2 points per game for the Grizzlies who have lost just three times all season and have won four in row entering their huge matchup with Mountain View tonight.
Modrow Brothers, Centennial
Kamron Modrow (2018) and Kolby Modrow (2019) are not only brothers but also partners in crime for having a taste for the three point field goal. Kamron has scored more than brother Kolby (31 three point field goals made in 12 games), but both like to shoot it. Both players are ranked in our class rankings and both are players to watch any time Centennial rolls the ball out on the court.
Troy Patterson, Kuna
Kuna’s gifted scorer Troy Patterson has been burning the nets this season for the Kavemen. Patterson is shooting just shy of 40% from deep and has averaged 14.5 points in 13 games for Kuna. Opposing teams should never lose sight of this explosive player.
Hunter Ranstorm, Rocky Mountain
A member of the extremely talented Ranstorm family, older brother Hunter Ranstorm (2018) has shown a liking for launching a three pointer or two. He is tied with Kuna’s Troy Patterson at 26 converted through 15 games, and this elite player will surely add to that total before the season is over.
Cole Alton, Boise
Coming off an incredible performance against the then top rated Borah Lions, Cole Alton has been showing out for the Boise Braves this season and has also been getting it done with his three point shot. Shooting just under 40% from three point land, Alton is one of Boise’s greatest weapons out on the court and give this team added firepower which makes them so difficult to defend. Alton and Boise should continue their winning ways as we move to the end of the regular season.
Cooper Anderson, Mountain View
With an exciting matchup tonight against Rocky Mountain on the schedule, the Mavericks will need Anderson to find that special touch from three point range that he has displayed this season as he has shot 41.3% and splashed home 19 total three pointers through 12 games.
