The season is right around the corner, so that means it is prediction time! We’ll be looking over 4A Skyline and predicting the leaders in scoring, rebounding, and assists (plus some superlatives).
Player of the Year: Jaelen House (Shadow Mountain 2019)
House is the best player in the region and one of the best players in the state as a whole. He should easily walk away with player of the year honors as he will be looking to lead Shadow Mountain to a state championship. Look for House to improve his scoring average to low 20’s.
Most Points: Jaelen House (Shadow Mountain 2019)
Despite being the best player in the region, he is probably the best scorer in the region as well. Last year, he averaged 18.6 points per game and I fully expect him to put up similar numbers or improves on them.
Most Rebounds: Shemar Morrow (Shadow Mountain 2020)
Morrow averaged 7.4 rebounds per game last year as a sophomore who played about 19 minutes. With some guys graduating, he should get even more minutes and his production will obviously increase. I think he could average 10-12 rebounds per game.
Most Assists: Jovan Blacksher (Shadow Mountain 2019)
Shadow Mountain should have an easy road back to a state title and their high power offense should be led by Jovan, in terms of assists. I think House has a big jump in scoring and with that being the case, his running partner should see an increase in his assists as well.
Best Shooter: Trent Hudgens (Moon Valley 2020)
While Shadow Mountain is the clear favorite in this region and in 4A as a whole, I still think the best shooter title belongs to Hudgens from Moon Valley. Hudgens has a great shot and can play with the best talent in state. I really like Hudgens game, especially offensively. One of my favorite games of his was his battle against Tay Boothman at the TR3 Hoops Summit.
