With the season over, we want to look back at a season before we head onto the grassroots scene. Here we focus on some junior guards that stood out in 5A during their state-run.

Joey Bilello Joey Bilello 6'8" | SF ThunderRidge | 2022 State CO –ThunderRidge

Bilello is one of those players that can be put into any situation and make the best out of it and fits in no matter the supporting cast. He is not a player that has to have the ball to be effective and has a calmness to his game and maturity that helped T-Ridge be named state champs this season. Bilello came off of the bench but had a starter impact on games. The 6’7 forward spaces the floor with his shooting, battles for boards and keeps plays alive, and keeps the offense flowing when it gets stagnant. With the Grizzlies not having a point guard for a bit of time, he stepped in and took on some ball-handling duties, which speaks to his versatility, and he had it going in the playoffs. Bilello averaged 13.2 points a game in the playoffs as he got T-Ridge off to a hot start with 22 points in the opening round. He went 12-20
