With the 2017-2018 high school basketball season winding down, we will be saying goodbye to the 2018 seniors and welcoming new leaders on the court. State tournaments are a good time for us to see underclassmen step up and have big performances. Below I break down five guys who are underclassmen that really stood out yesterday in the DCSAA tournament semifinals.
2019 Casey Morsell | St. John’s
The junior guard had a terrific season this year and was named to the 1st team all WCAC conference team. Yesterday in a win against Maret, Casey finished with 16 points, and 4 rebounds. He can score from all three levels and is a tough stop for opposing teams. Going into next year, Morsell could be one of the early favorites to win WCAC Player Of The Year.
2019 E.J. Jarvis | Maret
Jarvis looked everything like a high major prospect yesterday for Maret. The talented 6’8 post man finished with 17 points and 8 rebounds. He posted up and ran the floor well and on the defensive side of the ball he finished with 3 blocks. Jarvis currently stands at 5 in our Maryland/DC 2019 rankings.
2020 Terrance Williams | Gonzaga
Williams is currently slotted at 5 in our Maryland/DC 2020 rankings. Last night he was unstoppable for Gonzaga finishing with 27 points. He is a beast down low around the rim and can really back defenders down well with his size standing at 6’7. He is also continuely to work on his shooting and he has some confidence to shooting the ball from deep.
2020 Dimingus Stevens | Wilson
The 12th ranked 2020 prospect in our Maryland/DC rankings finished with 25 points in an upset win over Gonzaga. Stevens was scoring in bunches last night and was locked in from the beginning of the game. He scored five triples and was pushing the ball up the floor well. He is a pivotal piece in Wilson’s success.
2019 Jay Heath | Wilson
The Bishop O’Connell transfer finished with 15 points and was a huge spark all night for Wilson. He is a guy that is not afraid to have the ball in his hands during big moments in the game. His defense was also important for Wilson as he was bothering Gonzaga’s guards all night.
