Point guards are the floor generals, extensions of the coach, and the team leaders. Point guards are the heartbeats of their team. The 2020 Class has several point guards that will make some serious noise in the next two years. (Image Credit: Todd Lester and Village Living)
Tommy Murr (Lindsey Lane): You can not have a conversation about point guards, without mentioning Tommy Murr. As a junior, Murr lead the nation in scoring (39.7 ppg). Murr is a 6ft. electric scoring point guard. Murr can score from anywhere on the court, but he has really developed into a playmaker as well. He had a big time summer with Nike Elite Stars. If you love basketball, get a ticket, grab some popcorn and enjoy the show.
Kam Woods (Pinson Valley): Kam Woods is another must mention when talking about point guards. Woods may be small (5’9), but he plays will confidence. Kam is also a gifted scorer (27ppg). Woods has a smooth stroke, a tight handle, and can fill it up in a variety of ways. The most important development for Woods has been his playmaking out of the pick and roll. He just keeps getting better, and it will pay off in due time.
Paulia Stromaglia (Mountain Brook): Stromaglia is not the sexy pick of point guards in the 2020 class, but the kid is a bulldog. Paulia does everything you want in a point guard, and opponents don’t enjoy the matchup. He makes plays, he defends, can score when necessary, and he knows his role. Stromaglia fits the Mountain Brook system perfectly.
Corey Boston (Laffayette): Boston is a small (5’9), athletic, and quick guard. He excels at getting to the rim and making plays in transition. He has shown the ability to score on all three levels, but developing more consistency with his jump shot will benefit him in a big way.
Evan Carter (Brewbaker Tech): Carter is a solid lefty point guard. He makes plays for others and is comfortable running a team. He has shown the ability to score at all the levels. Carter has a very smooth game, and has a ton of upside.
