There are plenty of fop-tier players scoring the ball at an impressive clip so far this season. Now that the calendar has turned from 2018 to 2019 and teams have entered conference play, let’s take a look at the players who are the sixth- through 10th-leading scorers in Colorado’s Class 4A and how they’re doing it.
6. Kade Walker, 6-3, SF/G, The Classical Academy, 2020, 19.0 ppg
Walker is off to a great go to his junior season and is sixth in 4A with an even 19 points a night. The best part is, he’s doing all that scoring in an efficient manner with a 60-percent make percentage from the field. Not only that, but the 6-foot-3 hustler is doing his share of the dirty work to the tune of 7.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game.
7. Noah Sena, 5-10, G, Weld Central, 2020, 18.9 ppg
Balance, balance and more balance has been the theme for Sena this season. At 5-foot-10, he still finds ways to affect the game on a nightly basis. On top of shooting 42 percent from 3-point range, Sena 2.9 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 2.9 steals with him to the gym whenever the Rebels have a game to play.
8. Joel Scott, 6-7, F, Lewis-Palmer, 2019, 18.8 ppg
The go-to guy on the No. 1-ranked team in 4A, it’s no surprise to see Scott on this list. When he gets it going, he can be flat-out overwhelming. Long, athletic and skilled, the Rangers senior is backing up his status as one of the best players in Colorado with 18.8 points and 7.8 rebounds and can be counted on for at least a steal and a block every time he takes the court.
9. Antonio Rodriguez, 6-2, G, Pueblo Centennial, 2019, 18.7 ppg
How about kicking off the season with 31 points to lead the Bulldogs to win in the season opener? Rodriguez has come back doe to earth since then, but only a little bit. He is also grabbing 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 steals per game, and has six double-doubles in 12 games.
10. Joe Lombardelli, 6-4, F, Northridge, 2019, 18.6 ppg
Pulling down 8.3 rebounds while scoring 18.6 points a game, Lombardelli has been a bright spot on an otherwise tough 1-8 record for the Grizzlies this season. Northridge knows it can count on double figure scoring from its senior forward, who is shooting 61 percent on the season.
