The Boys playoffs are upon us starting Monday and believe me, it's going to be a show. Teams like Tulia, Palo Duro, Tascosa, and more are poised to make some long runs, as there are teams like Pampa that are ready to surprise some people this yeat too. For those fans that want to see some exciting players in the playoff run, Here are the top 10 players that will be worth your admission for sure!
#1 ETHAN DUNCAN- TRINITY CHRISTIAN
Ethan can get hot...fast! Duncan has been getting doubled since the 7th grade, but still finds a way to get off his shot and it goes in most of the time. He's in range as soon as he steps in the gym and Ethan has a great team around him including the airman himself, Tru Buchanan.
#2 BLAIR CONWRIGHT- CORONADO MUSTANGS
Well well, here's Blair again..lol. He was definitely worth seeing live in football, and for basketball he really puts on a show! When a clutch bucket is to be made, you will see Blair with the ball in hand and ready to make a play. Blair can have a night where he gets 15, or he can put up 40.... Can't wait to see what he and his fellow teammates do in the postseason.
#3 BJ ANDERSON- TASCOSA REBELS
BJ plays above the rim for the Rebels and he can also play some tenacious defense. In the 6A bracket, Anderson will need some stellar performances for Tascosa can go far. I'm pretty sure BJ will deliver for his team before he goes on to play for the Rams of Angelo State next year.
#4 DONALD YOUNG- ESTACADO MATADORS
Donald has one of the quickest releases in West Texas. Also, he's good....REAL GOOD! Coach Wagner has a dangerous roster for this year's playoff run, and if Donald is on, we may see the Matadors back in San Antonio for a state-run in 4A..
#5 AKUEL KOT- PALO DURO DONS
This young man can play! He's coming into the playoffs as maybe the most dangerous player in the 806 with the way he can get to the basket easily and score, or draw contact and get to the stripe. The Dons are loaded and should challenge for a spot in the state tourney!
#6 CHASE LANDERS- PAMPA HARVESTERS
Chase is special for the 'Hustlin Harvesters of Pampa. He can do it all, from driving the paint, to pulling up from 25.. Landers will need some big performances for his team if they want to accomplish the goals they have set for themselves, and I wouldn't count Chase or the Harvesters out from making a serious run this postseason.
#7 QUA BUTLER- MONTEREY PLAINSMEN
Qua can jump out of the gym, but also has some great handles as well. Monterey had a breakout season and now they will look to build on that in the playoffs as they will take on Abilene Wylie at Borden County on Tuesday. This team, when clicking on all cylinders, can beat anyone in Region I and contend for a spot in San Antonio!
#8 JALIN CONYERS- GRUVER GREYHOUNDS
Jalin is a certified DI player; either in football or in basketball, his pick. He led the Comanches to a 2A title last year, and now here we go with Jalin and his new team, the Gruver Greyhounds, with another shot at a title in 2A. Plenty of hops, and a dangerous defensive presence in the middle, Jalin and the Greyhounds will be a tough team to beat!
#9 GRIFFIN BROSOWSKE- PERRYTON RANGERS
Griffin is starting to heat up.. Very solid game and will put you on a poster if you're not ready. The Rangers will have a great run in the playoffs and expect Griffin to lead the way! He is an exciting player and worth the price of admission!
#10 CHRIS WILSON- CAPROCK LONGHORNS
Chris is a lock-down defender and is very fast on the court too. Very slippery around the bucket, and he can finish in a myriad of ways for the Longhorns. The 'Horns will make some noise again in the playoffs and Coach Gibbs will have them ready!
#11 DRE CONWRIGHT- ESTACADO MATADORS
Fresh off of his signing to McMurry university, Dre isn't letting up. A lot of awards are coming his way in basketball and he is a very talented point guard for the Matadors that has came into his own this season. He has a great jumper, but also can drive to the paint and finish. Lookout...
