Predicting the DMV’s Top Scorers (Part 3)

High School

Posted On: 09/7/18 5:00 PM

In anticipation of the upcoming high school season, we will be taking a closer look at various teams and players throughout Maryland, DC, and Virginia. In this edition we anticipate the top scorers in the DC Metro Area.

JUSTIN MOORE |  DEMATHA ’19

We saw just how explosive Justin Moore can be in last year’s WCAC Tournament, when he erupted for an efficient 34 points against Bishop O’Connell. DeMatha’s offense is well balanced, and almost each night you will see a different player lead the team in scoring, but we think Moore will be the most consistent of the bunch.

KINO LILLY | LANDON ’21

Kino LiIly

It will be interesting to see how teams in the IAC elect to defend Kino Lilly this year. He has seemingly limitless range on his jump shot, but also sets up the rest of his game well off it. Lilly scored 20 or more just twice last year, but it’s easy to see that number going up this year.

DARYL MACKEY JR. | WEST POTOMAC ’19

Daryl Mackey
Mackey averaged 24 points per game last year

Daryl Mackey returns to West Potomac for his senior year after scoring in double figures during every game of his junior campaign. The explosive guard prospect is a natural scorer, and should put up scary numbers again this year.

Casey Morsell
Morsell hit 50 threes last season for SJC

CASEY MORSELL | ST. JOHN’S ’19

Casey Morsell was a candidate for WCAC Player of the Year as a junior, and he’s only improved since then. The Virginia commit, considered one of the best shooters in the country, is coming off an excellent campaign with Team Takeover. Look for Morsell to embrace his leadership role during his final high school season. 

JEREMY ROACH | PAUL VI ’20

Roach scored his season high of 32 points at DeMatha last year

Jeremy Roach showed that he can do damage regardless of the setting or opponent during his sophomore season. The two-time gold medalist and reigning WCAC first teamer should flourish in an even more prominent role as an upperclassmen, even in PVI’s balanced system.
