We expected some chaos in the first round of the 5A CHSAA state playoffs, but we did not expect multiple upsets, games coming down to the wire, and players to set new career-highs. But that is the beauty of March Madness. Here, we take a look at some of the top performers from the opening round. 

Blakeley Stoughton Blakeley Stoughton 6'3" | SF Regis Jesuit | 2021 State CO – Regis

In Regis’s 86-60 win over Loveland in the first round of the playoffs, the Raiders leading scorer and breakout performer all season long had another astounding performance. The 6’3 wing put up a game-high 23 points on a ultra efficient night. Stoughton finished 10-13 from the field and had his way. Stoughton’s shot was falling from deep as he knocked down three 3-pointers, he carved the defense up inside and made essentially every layup attempt he had on the night and his work on the defensive side of the ball set the tone for the night. Stoughton finished with a career-high five steals and turned those into fastbreak points. He was getting others involved, filling the passing lanes correctly and a force on the boards. Great all-around effort for the senior that has Regis in the drivers seat.
