The December headlines in Topeka were dominated by Tre Alexander Tre Alexander 6'3" | CG Topeka West | 2021 State KS and Geivonnii Williams. Veterans like Joe Berry Joe Berry 6'4" | CG Washburn Rural | 2021 State KS , Jack Hutchinson Jack Hutchinson 5'11" | CG Hayden | 2021 State KS and Ty Henry Ty Henry 6'4" | SG Seaman | 2022 State KS got press as usual.

But when Topeka schools got back in action Friday, a bunch of new faces were making the plays. Here are some of the difference makers from Friday:

Dante’ Harrison, sophomore, Shawnee Heights:

The T-Birds were decimated by COVID holdouts. Top-scoring senior Isiah Johnson Isiah Johnson 5'10" | CG Shawnee Heights | 2021 State KS was not available. But though the T-Birds eventually succumbed to Lansing, they put up a valiant fight, let by 6-foot sophomore Dante’ Harrison, who has seen very little varsity playing time to date. Friday, Harrison went for 13, including three 3-pointers.

Mateo Hyman Mateo Hyman 5'11" | CG Topeka | 2022 State KS , junior, Seaman:

Hyman’s name has been noticeably absent from the Seaman box scores. After posting 12 points in each of the first two games of the season, Hyman sat out the next three contests. The slick ball-handling point man really gets his teammates involved and presents a threat to drive that will open up shooters and free Henry up to play off the ball. Hyman returned Friday with 18 points in a win over Topeka High.
