It’s time. With an exciting 2017-18 high school basketball season behind us, and before the grassroots season gets going strong, we’re prepared to release the Prep Hoops 6A all-state team, starting with the third team and honorable mentions.
This is part one of a three part installment. The second and first team will be revealed later this week.
Kelton Samore, Grant senior
Grant’s fantastic season concluded with a 6A title and Samore was big in the finale, grabbing 11 rebounds as the Generals’ top post presence. He finished the season averaging 20 points and eight rebounds. Still unsigned, the 6-foot-9 forward should end up somewhere on scholarship.
Josh Angle, Lake Oswego junior
Lake Oswego won the highly-competitive Three Rivers League with one of the most well-balanced teams in the state, but if one guy stood out for them, it had to be Angle. A sharpshooting volume shooter, Angle hit 49 percent of his attempts from deep and averaged 17.6 points per game. He continued to become a more complete player this season, expending lots of energy on the defensive side of the ball. The Lakers backcourt will be scary good next year with Angle and 2021 point guard Wayne McKinney.
Jake Estep, Beaverton senior
Estep’s fantastic career ended with a relatively quiet senior season, as the Beavers were not among the state’s best. But Estep was. He averaged 25.4 points per game, including 45 in his final prep game, a loss to Grants Pass. He was also fairly efficient, shooting 37 percent from deep, 49 percent from the field and 81 percent from the line. The 6-foot-4 wing will play his college ball at Western Oregon.
Teron Bradford, Oregon City senior
Like Estep, Bradford meant a whole heck of a lot to his team. The point guard faced tons of defensive attention, but still averaged 22.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. For his four-year career, he finished 1,581 points.
Aaron Baune, McMinnville senior
Sometimes overlooked in a Greater Valley Conference full of dynamic players, Baune had another fantastic year. He averaged 23.1 points and 9.4 rebounds and scored from three-point range, as well as at the rim. He is one of the several Oregon all-stars who will be playing in the Northwest Shootout on Saturday.
Isaac Amaral-Artharee, Central Catholic senior
Chandler Cavell, McNary senior
Jay Elmore, South Eugene senior
Filip Fullerton, Southridge senior
Bostyn Holt, Roosevelt senior
Matt Lang, Jesuit senior
Jaden Nielsen-Skinner, South Salem junior
Jalen Thompson, West Linn senior
Cole Turner, Clackamas senior
Jesse White, Barlow sophomore
