The high school basketball season has almost come to an end. State Tournament starts next week. It is now time for PrepHoopsKentucky to unveil our All-State Teams. Here are your Class of 2019 All-State Teams! The teams are presented in no particular order.
F Isaiah Cozart (Madison Central) – Averaging a double-double at 13 points and 10 rebounds doesn’t tell the tale of Cozart completely. Standing 6’7 but possessing a 7’4 wingspan, Cozart blocks shots at a record pace. Isaiah impacts the game as much with his defense as he does his offense. Cozart shot 58% from the field and was 7/15 from behind the 3 point line for the season. He also has 536 career blocks and will shatter the career record by this time next season.
F Kyle Rode (Lexington Christian) – Another member of the team whose impact cannot just be recognized in statistics, the 6’7 point forward averaged 16 points and 8 rebounds while playing point forward on one of the top teams in the state. Kyle’s size and positional versatility is what makes him so valuable. Kyle has a sky high basketball IQ and a knack for being in the right spots at the right times.
F Michael Moreno (Scott County) – The best player on the best team in the state (leading up to state tournament). Mike is almost an automatic double double, averaging 20.5 points and 11 rebounds per game. His consistent play sparked Scott County to a 34-1 record and the favorites to win the state tournament next week.
G Dontaie Allen (Pendleton County) – The 6’6″ guard is a dynamic scorer who also ranked among the state’s top rebounders all season long. Allen averaged just under 32 points per game on the season and pulled down 11.4 rebounds per contest too. Dontaie scored his 1,000th point of the season in the finale against Paris. Already at over 3,000 points and 1,000 rebounds for his entire career, Allen is a front runner for 2019 Mr. Basketball.
G David Johnson (Trinity) – Like his teammate Justin Powell on the 2020 team, Johnson suffers from being on a team that has a ton of talent on it. His season averages of 14 points and 6 rebounds per game won’t blow anyone away but there is no doubt that David is an elite talent and a top 100 player in the country in the 2019 class.
G Dekeyvan “KyKy” Tandy (University Heights Academy) – Another elite prospect in Kentucky’s 2019 class, Tandy is a high level athlete and a big time scorer. KyKy averaged 30.5 points per game for the Blazers with remarkable 61/45/78 shooting splits. Tandy will be at Rupp Arena next week along with Moreno and Johnson.
