Posted On: 02/8/18 2:23 PM

The junior guard out of Kentridge High School has set high expectations for this season and for himself personally.

With good size and skill, the two-way player has the ability impact at both ends. Standing at 6’5, Briceno can score from anywhere- in the paint, mid-range, and from outside. He has great touch around the rim and a solid jumper from outside. Briceno plays with great court awareness, making him a very efficient player and teammate.

“I feel like my basketball IQ is my biggest strength. I feel like I can score at all three levels of the floor. If you take one away I can hurt you from the other two areas.”

Briceno plays with confidence in his game, and it shows. Prep Hoops has Briceno ranked #34th overall in the 2019 class. But with his drive and passion for the game, Briceno could very well climb that ladder. His level of play has gained recognition from several schools, including- Montana, Montana State, and Idaho. And being just a junior, Briceno’s recruiting door is still wide open.

“I think I need to continue to work on and improve all areas of my game. I have big goals, and am only going to reach those goals if I’m constantly improving.”

Kentridge came into this season with high expectations for their team. But it’s rare to find any team that doesn’t experiencing roadblocks throughout the year. Good teams find ways to prevail. 

“So far we’ve had some minor obstacles but it’s made us stronger as a team and there’s nothing we can’t overcome.”

Kentridge won their last 5 out of 6 games, and finished the season 3rd in the North Puget Sound League standings. The team currently sits in a loser out district game, but is confident in their ability to keep moving forward. 

“My teams goal is to win state. We feel like we are talented enough to get the job done.”
