High School

Posted On: 09/20/18 11:18 PM

To keep our season previews going, we will be looking at the best returning duos and trios in each class. We continue, we look at our top returning junior duos. This is Part I, be on the lookout for Part II coming soon. This list is in no particular order.

Noah Jager and Anthony Leal (Bloomington South)

Jager and Leal are the perfect compliment to each other because of the way that Leal can thrive off of Jager. Leal is the scorer between the two but Jager sets up teammates for those easy scores. With Jager playing on the ball, it frees up Leal to move without it. The perimeter is where Leal is the most dangerous but Jager can use the extra eye on Leal to score the ball.

Deontae Craig and Trey Galloway (Culver Academy)

One of the best duos in the state, Craig and Galloway are looking to bring Culver back to the state championship game again this year. Galloway is a pure scorer who can put up points at any time and Craig is a guy who is able to play off of Galloway’s strengths and score the ball as well. Craig is more of the enforcer, but he does all the little things to help set up Galloway.

Dillon Ware and Sam Comer (Danville)

Ware and Comer have been names that people around the state have known since their freshman year. Ware is a long and rangy forward who has the agility to play on the outside or on the inside. Comer is more of the guy who is going to fire it off from deep and he does that really well. Both of them have a great feel for the game and they play off of each other.

Chris Grubbs and Mabor Majak (Hamilton Southeastern)

Majak may be the most imposing player in the entire state. A true seven footer, he is very nimble and athletic which allows him to score pretty well around the post. He is a good shot blocker as well protecting the paint. Grubbs is the opposite of Majak as he is the guy who will run the floor and score the ball in transition. They are contrasting styles but it works so well.

D’Andre Davis and Nijel Pack (Lawrence Central)

Both of these guys are D1 type guards. Both of them have a few offers to their name and are really solid at getting into the lane and finishing. Pack is more of a point guard as he is a bit on the smaller side and Davis is probably going to end up as a two-guard at the next level due to his size. Both guys are super quick and love to run with the ball.
