Mr. Basketball Watch

Nearly halfway through the season, its time to take a look at who the front runners are in the race for Mr. Basketball in the state of Georgia.

We all knew Scoot HendersonScootHenderson6'2" | PGKell | 2022State#17NationGA was good, but we didn’t know he would be this good this fast. His trajectory has him heading toward the NBA lottery if things go according to plan. Henderson has taken the state by storm, shoring up every area of his game that needed some improvement. He’s now a dangerous three-point shooter that can consistently knock down shots. He can play at multiple speeds and of course, his athleticism is through the roof. He can both punish defenders at the rim or pull-up for his trademark mid-range. Henderson is a tenacious competitor that has improved each year on defense. While most five stars are joined by other highly ranked players, Henderson doesn’t have the luxury of playing with other High Major recruits. The target is always on his back. If you stop Henderson, you stop Kell. But the thing is, you can’t stop Scoot.
