The road to my preseason selections finally falls up to Palm Beach County. As I have proclaimed in the past, this part of South Florida tends to be undervalued. With Miami casting such a shadow, I guess anywhere outside of that proximity can be overlooked.

Boca-St. Andrew’s gave this region a big boost with a state championship last season. It was the first state title for head coach John O’Connell and the program.

Let’s get right into my picks...

Josh MinottJoshMinott6'9" | PFSt. Andrew's | 2021State#135NationFL - St. Andrew’s

This might be the easiest call of them all. 6-foot-8 small forward Josh MinottJoshMinott6'9" | PFSt. Andrew's | 2021State#135NationFL is the best player currently in the tri-county region. In reality, Minott can play all five positions at this level and possess a high intellect on/off the court. The Scots went 26-5 with him and won that elusive state championship over Andrew Jackson. On the season, Minott averaged 17.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. During the Lakeland run, Minott scored 101 points over five games. Included in that stretch was a dominant 28-point performance against Santa Fe Catholic. He is currently committed to Memphis to play for Penny Hardaway.
