The essence of basketball is still a mano y mano game. The ability to get the better of your primary defender goes a long way in evaluating players skills. I realize many teams will run variations of zones, however, I'm still a sucker for a good one on one matchup. In this article PH takes a look at the top 1 on 1 matchups, I'm looking forward to watching this year. 

1. Anthony Hunter (#6 2020) 5'11 PG Durango vs Zaon Collins (#2 2021) 6'1 PG Bishop Gorman - Durango and BG meet twice this season. Hunter is one of the best on-ball defenders in the state. He will most likely be defending Collins who is one of the most advanced offensive players. Both are exceptionally quick and terrific run and jump athletes.

2. Joshua Jefferson (#4 2022) 6'6 SF Liberty vs Jaxon Kohler (#1 2022) 6'8 PF Coronado - Two of the top players in the class of 2022 go head to head twice this season. Both are technicians on the block, that possess excellent footwork. It will be interesting to see if they guard each other straight up, or force the opposing team into running doubles.
