Our Second State Scoring List……More to Come

The basketball season has begun. Football is now officially over and the hardwood becomes the main attraction around the state. I have once again scoured the earth, from Bristol to Brighton bringing you the most comprehensive scoring list in the state. This has become one of our most favorite entries as college coaches have told me often how they look at the list weekly. We will have profiles from some of the top performers and a list of scoring over 25 points from East, Middle and West Tennessee.

 

 

 

 

Pre-Christmas tournaments and the week leading up to that week are featured in this session of the state scoring leaders.

Hunter Vick (Camden Central) is tearing the cover off the record book. The rising senior Tennessee Tech signee passed the vaunted 2,000 point barrier with games of 32 markers against Hickman County, 31 against Fairview, 31 more against East Hickman and finally 30 against Montgomery Central. Do I hear Mr. Basketball ballots?


Jessie Walker (Brainerd) etched his name in Brainerd folklore passing the 1,000 point barrier in his junior season. Good things to come for this fella.

Taelyr Gatlin (Brighton) might not be as well known as some of the Memphis guards but this rising junior is right up there with them in talent. He managed a 26 point effort against a solid Haywood squad, came back with 25 against Dyersburg and popped another 25 over Memphis Overton.

Talk about scoring stats, "wait till they get a load of me". Tyreke Key (Clay County) in no particular order the Indiana State signee busted 49 points against Macon County, 46 markers against West Hall (GA), 43 more against WR Hill (SC) and then a measly 37 against Red Boiling Springs.

Big congrats to a pair of teammates passing the 1,000 point barrier for their particular school. Austyn McWilliams (Upperman) and Josh Endicott (Upperman) each got their milestone in the past few weeks. Congrats Bees.

Take a good strong look at Tyler Harris (Cordova) arguably the most fearless cat in this state. The hard shooting rising junior guard had a huge last couple week against some big time competition. Harris busted 31 against Kirby, 27 against a very good Houston squad and 26 points against nationally ranked Covenant Christian (GA).

Coaches lend me your ears, Down Nashville way we have a slick, smart and hard shooting guard who is lighting up the scoreboards this, his senior season. Kellen King (Brentwood) had some solid efforts over the past couple of weeks netting 27 against Ezell-Harding and posting 25 on Cheatham County.

Congrats to one of my dudes, Coulter Dotson (Creek Wood) surpassing the 1,000 point barrier in this his junior campaign.
