Sub-State/Sectional Scoring List….State Tourney Here We Come


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 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.


This will be the sub-state/sectional scoring list for all classifications.


Brice Cusick (Jefferson County) has made the most of his final season with the Patriots. The BryanCollege signee surpassed the 1,000 point mark for his career and helped lead his squad to a date with Oak Ridge at the state tournament.            


Malik Pugh (Dyer County) put the final touches on an outstanding high school career. The UNC-Wilmington signee scored 37 but it would prove to not be enough as the Choctaws fell to powerful Memphis Hamilton in the sub-state round.               


Jermaine Sawyers (Lead Academy) scored 22 points and helped lead Lead Academy to its first ever appearance at the Class A state tournament next week in Murfreesboro.         


Terry Holt (East Nashville) had one of his best games of the season notching 37 points as East Nashville bested Cascade and earned a spot in the state tournament.            


Braxton Blackwell (CPA) sets the tone for the Lions of CPA. The nationally ranked rising sophomore dropped 23 points as CPA bested Cheatham County and moved on to defend their Class AA state title next week.  


Chris Kennedy (Goodpasture) scored 20 points as Goodpasture went over the century mark and earned a trip to Murfreesboro next week for the state tournament.          


Jacob Williams (Wilson Central) saved his best for last, as the rising senior guard scored 17 points and was key in the Wildcats late season surge to earn their berth in the state tournament next week in the 'boro.
