Whatcom County has seen some great HS summer action over the past couple weeks. Here are some guards from the past couple weeks that have been standing out. There will be some GREAT basketball up here this year, and years to come.

Bennett DeLange Bennett DeLange 6'2" | SG Nooksack Valley | 2023 WA -Nooksack Valley -2023–G

Bennett was one of my favorite players to watch to watch at the Laurel Shootout. He can take control of the game very quickly for his team. He’s always finding his open teammates and facilitating the game smoothly. DeLange also is pure scorer. He can get to the bucket, hit the midrange shot, or step back and drain the three. He plays the game with a very high IQ and it seems like he’s always thinking one play ahead. He’s been on top of his game so far this summer, showing he can lead a team with ease. He’ll be another 2023 in the NWC to watch out for this year.
