Our Prep Hoops Pennsylvania updated rankings for the 2023 class include a tremendous amount of players. With 300 young men on the list, we take an in-depth look at some of the WPIAL leading scorers from this season who are highly ranked in our state. These super six performers "lit up" the scoreboard during high school games and continue to "fill up" the stat sheet in the AAU campaign.

 

Vinnie Cugini Vinnie Cugini 6'2" | PG Aquinas Academy | 2023 State PA - 6’2 combo guard - Aquinas Academy High School - Mason Elite (AAU)

During the high school season, this prolific scorer led the WPIAL in scoring average (nearly an amazing 40 points per game) from beginning to end. With his team playing up-tempo, this young gun is able to score in bunches in transition or quick half-court sets. Now that Vinnie has added some strength to his lanky body, his ability to get to the rim has improved tremendously. His arsenal includes many other different ways to put up points during a game, which creates difficulties for the defense. Also, during the AAU season with Mason Elite, Vinnie has taken advantage of more opportunities to showcase his talent.
