Recognizing player achievement is what Prep Hoops is all about. In this week’s extensive Midseason Mark series, we will go all across Ohio, identifying which players are leading the way in the 2019-20 season. 

We're now in Northeast Ohio for the second portion of a three-part series:

Jalin Billingsley (2021) | 6-7 PF | Lutheran East

Billingsley's game has shown signs of maturity in year three as he becomes more productive off the bounce. While creating more often from the perimeter, he has also shown more physicality inside on both ends of the floor. Lutheran East is one of the best three teams in Division II and will need huge nights from him in March to win the title.

Malaki Branham (2021) | 6-5 SG | St. Vincent-St. Mary

Branham has led St. Vincent-St. Mary to an 8-4 start, establishing themselves as the No. 1 team in Division II at the midway point. The go-to scoring prowess we saw in the summer has translated to the winter months, where the game tends to be more structured than AAU season. Very versatile defender. Branham has put together huge nights against the Moeller and Sierra Canyon
