Once again I have scoured the newspapers, faxes, twitters and other forms of media that come to my attention compiling a list of the top scorers in the state for each week of the season.
If you know of some scoring exploits or a scoring milestone such as 1,000 point club or something of that nature please email me at email@example.com and I will get this added to the next week’s story.
If you know of someone who scored over 25 points and they did not make the list please let me know and I will add them to the following weeks list.
College coaches have told me this is one of their favorite features as it helps them get an understanding on the pulse of the new season.
Marlon Hunter (Houston) the junior swing man has made the most since his transfer to Houston. Hunter dropped 29 in a win over Craigmont and followed up with 31 against Washington.
Austin Cox (Knoxville Webb) had a very productive scoring week as his Spartans sstand at 8-0 on the young season. Cox scored 25 in a big win over Class AAA Dobyns-Bennett and added 42 in the final game of the US Cellular Thanksgiving Tournament against Tennessee High.
Ryan Jones (Siegel) has been a sensation thus far in his final prep campaign. "Lil-Man" is on s coring binge and this week his victim was Hillsboro to the tune of 28 in a big victory for the Stars.
Abdul Ado (Hamilton Heights) is a name you should familiarize yourselves with immediately. The 6-10 sophomore post is an emerging presence with raw ability. He had a monster effort with 41 points, 20 boards and double digit blocks in a victory over Bradley Central.
Jaylen Barford (Jackson Southside) had himself a monster effort over the holidays dropping 41 points in a big win over Central Park Christian in Alabama.
Jalen Duke (MLK) made his presence felt at the MLK Holiday event in Memphis nailing 44 markers against Carver.
Ben Snider (Ooltewah) has his final season off and running scoring 30 points against East Ridge and adding 36 more in a win over CampbellCounty.
LaGerald Vick (Douglass) might be the best kept secret in Memphis. The 6'5 shooting guard will explode on the scene shortly after efforts including a 31 point outburst against KIPP.
