With the season over, we want to take a look back at a season that was before we head onto the grassroots scene. Here we focus on some junior guards that stood out in 4A during their state-run.

I am not sure there was a player in the state that boosted his stock like Knudsen did in these playoffs. Knudsen was already highly regarded as the best shooter in the state, but for him to put the team on his back and have them crowned as state champs put him in elite category. Knudsen was the team's primary ball-handler and, despite being face-guarded and double-teamed, still put up monster numbers. Knudsen is now CHSAA’s record holder for the state playoff regardless of class, as he put up 130 points in his run, which is an average of 26.0 points a game. He hit 24 3-pointers in the run at a 40% clip and displayed the ability to take over a game in his own unique way. Knudsen earned all respect that he is getting this way and will surely be named as the 4A tournament MVP with his magical run.
