Posted On: 06/4/21 10:04 AM

North Louisiana has been off and running as team camps have been held at various locations. Alexandria High got things started and camps have followed at Neville, Airline, and now Southwood. With the 2021 class leaving to find new homes on the next level, new faces are being to emerge during these team camp sessions. In a two part series, we will take a look at some of the new names to know on the Louisiana prep basketball scene.

Deyontez Baptiste Deyontez Baptiste 5'11" | PG Tioga | 2022 State LA | 5’11" (2022) | Tioga

The Tioga point guard looked very comfortable playing on his home court during the ASH team camp.  Baptiste is a scoring point guard who spent his time getting buckets at pretty much every level.  He is a good rebounder for his size and he pushed the ball up the floor after every rebound he gathered.  His one dribble pull-up on the break was his most deadly weapon of choice on the day.  Baptiste also displayed a quick first step which got him to the glass quickly.  His quickness and ability to score are two of the reasons Baptiste stood out.
