During the month of June, high school basketball ramps back up, with most schools visiting tournaments each weekend. In this article, we take a look at Union High School (WA) and what they have going this summer.
Ethan Smith (2019) is one of the elite shooters in the state of Washington. With Union looking to Smith as the main source of offensive production, look for his scoring numbers to spike. Alishawuan Taylor (2019) is a very physical post player that sets hard screens and pulls down rebounds at an extremely high rate. Taylor will continue to have an impact on both ends of the court by making winning efforts.
Week 1: Varsity played in the Franklin Quaker Summer Slam, while the remaining teams played in the Hoopsource NW Summer Invitational
Week 2: All teams playing in the Titanic Clash (hosted by Union High School), see here for schedule
Week 3: Varsity playing in the War of the Border tournament, while the remaining teams play in a tournament at Washougal High School
Week 4: Varsity playing in the Curtis Shootout before all three teams head to Oregon Team Camp
Thoughts from Head Coach Blake Conley:
“We have a group of guys who want to be good, are coachable, play hard and want to add to the state-wide success we have had here at Union. Summer is a time to compete, figure out our new roles and dynamics and to figure out what our strengths and weaknesses are. We need our seniors to be leaders this summer and get a little better every day. It is a process to be a good team and we are beginning that process.”
