Here it is, the Prep Hoops 6A All-State First Team. Without further ado…
Marcus Tsohonis, Jefferson junior
Tsohonis may have proved how valuable he was in the 6A championship, when the Democrats lost as he watched with injury. But throughout the season, Tsohonis was outstanding. The future Division I player averaged 23.4 points, 7.1 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 2.1 steals a game for Jefferson. Tsohonis is the top ranked player in Oregon’s class of 2019 and holds an offer from USC.
Aaron Deloney, Grant junior
Deloney exploded this year. He made some waves at the end of his sophomore year, but was Grant’s top scorer and arguably best player all season long. He finished third in 6A with 25.8 points per game and added 6.2 assists and 2.5 steals per game. His success didn’t go unnoticed. The quick 6-foot-0 point guard picked up an offer from Portland State. He and Tsohonis will likely be the top players in the state next season and their rivalry will be one of the most intriguing storylines to follow.
Kyle Greeley, West Salem senior
6A’s leading scorer was Greeley, a Portland State commit, who shot 41 percent from deep, 57 percent from the field, 81 percent from the line and averaged 27.8 per game. No matter what teams threw at him, he found a way to score. Greeley established himself as a terrific three-point shooter early on in his high school career, but grew to score at all three levels. Against West Linn in the second round of the playoffs, he did not attempt a deep ball, but finished with 28 points on 18-of-20 shooting from the charity stripe.
Kamaka Hepa, Jefferson senior
Hepa was probably the best defensive player on the year, averaging an astounding 6.3 blocks per game. It’s easy to see why Hepa was such a highly-regarded recruit (top-50 in the nation), as the 6-foot-9 forward could do it all: protect the rim, knock down three-pointers, defend any position. Oregon rarely sees such a gifted athlete at the high school level. A future Texas Longhorn, Hepa finished averaging 16.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists.
Teagan Quitoriano, Sprague senior
For a period of time, Sprague was ranked No. 1 by the OSAA and Quitoriano was a big reason why. Sprague’s secondary scorer, Jailen Hammer, was helpful, but it was Quitoriano who did a bulk of their offensive damage, averaging 22.0 points, as well as 11.5 rebounds. A future Duck football player, the 6-foot-7 behemoth dominated opponents who couldn’t match his physicality. Said rival coach Travis Myers: “We don’t have a matchup for Teagan. There is no one on our roster that can guard him. And a lot of rosters don’t have a guy that can guard him.”
