The basketball season is literally hours away. This is the part of the season where I look at players who I believe will be 1st and 2nd team all-state players. The first class I will look at is 5A. No, I am not using some big, scientific formula for these predictions. However, I am making some bold predictions with some basketball knowledge thrown in. So, here we go in 5A.

Preseason All-State (5A)

1st Team (Alphabetical order)

Will Allen Will Allen 6'7" | PF Bonnabel | 2021 State LA (6’8" Senior / Bonnabel)

Claudell Harris Claudell Harris 6'3" | CG Hahnville | 2021 State LA (6’3" Senior / Hahnville)

Gavin Harris Gavin Harris 6'2" | CG Walker | 2021 State LA (6’2" Senior / Walker)

Kendrick Delahoussaye Kendrick Delahoussaye 6'0" | PG Lafayette High | 2021 State LA (6’0" Senior / Lafayette)

Emareyon McDonald Emareyon McDonald 6'1" | PG Scotlandville | 2021 State LA (6’1" Senior / Scotlandville)

Starting with the last name  Emareyon McDonald Emareyon McDonald 6'1" | PG Scotlandville | 2021 State LA , all-state would be a goal and a redemption story all at the same time.  He had to sit out last season and watch the team win a state title without him.  This season, his return mixed with the Scotlandville schedule should give him ample opportunity to land on the first team.  He can also shoot, handle, and pass.  Those should be enough reasons.  Kendrick Delahoussaye will be the best facilitator of offense
