We highlight the top returning scorers in the 2020 class from last year. These guys led the 2020 class in points per game and come back this year and look to push their scoring totals even higher. There are some missing players as some statistics from players were not uploaded to maxpreps.com.
Dominic Lucido (Hanover Central) – 5’11 PG – 19.9 PPG
Lucido is the leading returning scorer in the 2020 class. Lucido doesn’t hurt you in one way. He makes shots from the outside ut also can get into the lane and use his body to make layups. He isn’t a guy who is going to take a ton of threes but will rather shot fake you and take it into a spot where he can hit a jumper. May be poised for a big year this year.
Josiah Ricketts (North Posey) – 6′ SG – 18.5 PPG
Ricketts is a guy who is going to go full speed at the rim and he is either going to score or he will get fouled and go to the line for easy points. Last year, he took 143 shots from the free throw line and converted on 82 percent of those. That was a lot of his scoring but he will also hurt you from deep given the opportunity to do so.
Andrew Froedge (Blue River Valley) – 6’1 SG – 18.5 PPG
Froedge was very similar to Ricketts in his style of play last year. He likes to get into the paint to create contact and hopefully foul shots. Froedge likes to push the tempo and score the ball in transition but he also likes to set up his teammates in the open floor. Froedge is a guy who can knock down open shots when he has them but his jumper still needs a little work.
Jared Beckler (Indiana School for the Deaf) – 6’1 SG – 19.9 PPG
Beckler’s first game last year caught a lot of attention as he scored 36 points on 13-of-20 shooting. After this game, he cooled off and turned into a guy who is a volume shooter. He ended the year averaging .9 points a shot and that was due to him kind of firing shots off whenever. He was not afraid to take three-pointers either as he shot 179 of them.
Murray Becher (Heritage Hills) – 6’4 SF – 18.1 PPG
Becher has been a long talked about player for Heritage Hills. He is a known scorer in the southern part of the state and his inclusion on this list kind of affirms that. He doesn’t really shoot the ball much from the outside but he is able to do it as he made 43 percent of his attempts last year. Most of a driver and finisher at the rim. Becher is going to be really good this year and his scoring totals will climb.
Carson Barrett (Lafayette Central Catholic) – 6’3 SF – 18.1 PPG
Barrett is one of the more dynamic players in the state as he can really do it all. He can rebound, pass, and score the ball. He is a guy who can shoot the ball from deep but really just prefers to take it at the rim and score the ball. This year he will raise his scoring totals due to losing a few scorers from last years team. Barrett is a dynamic player.
Davion Davis (Calumet) – 5’9 PG – 17.5 PPG
Davis is a do-it-all type of guy for Calumet. He can really influence a game with his scoring output. He shoots the ball at a very good clip inside the arc and outside of it can get streaky at times. Takes a ton of free throw attempts and with that builds p his point totals. He’s a tough guy who will get into the lane and finish over everyone.
Trenton Daughtry (Wabash) – 5’11 PG – 16.9 PPG
Daughtry is a guy who shoots the ball a ton and doesn’t really connect on much from the outside. He hangs his hat on scoring inside and he uses his body to create contact and get to the line. He only shot 40 percent from the floor last year but with a year under his belt this year should raise his scoring output while cutting down on his shots.
Kolten Sanford (Evansville North) – 5’8 PG – 16.7 PPG
Sanford is a small guard whose scoring isn’t predicated on speed. He is more of a shifty guard who knows how to use his body to create some space. Sanford has the ability to knock down shots from the outside but also can get to the rim. Isn’t going to blow you away with anything that he does, but he will score points every night.
Max Gizzi (New Palestine) – 6′ PG – 16.5 PPG
Gizzi is a very balanced player. He is tough enough to get into the lane and finish but he also has the ability to shoot the ball if he wants to. Has the basketball IQ to not be a guy who shoots it too but and picks his spots well. Has good handles to be able to create for himself on the offensive side of the ball. He has gotten na lot stronger over the summer as well.
