The Scoring List is Up…..Man This is Fun

One of our favorite features is back. Coaches have told me this is what they wait for each week. I have scoured the news sources from around the state and come up with the top scoring efforts. This has become increasingly harder as the local newspapers are no longer putting box scores in the paper. I could use your help if you find or know of anyone scoring over 25 points in a game, please let me know. I can be reached at andre@tnprephoops.com or @tnprephoops on twitter.

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the vaunted 1,000 point club Eric Rigsby (Daniel Boone), Austin Jackson (Rossview) and Marvin Hughes (McGavock). Rigsby and Jackson are concluding solid senior seasons while Hughes is only halfway through his sophomore campaign.

 

Dawson Abbott (Pickett County) is one of the best shooters that very few people know about. The lanky senior has been scoring in bunches including a 25 spot against Clay County and a huge 44 point outburst against Gordonsville.  

 

Malik Riddle (Rossville Christian) is making certain his legacy will never be forgotten. The senior guard secured his second straight Mr. Basketball nomination and in the process slipped past the 2,000 point barrier for his career with big games of 25 against Harding Academy, another 25 against Lausanne and a cool 30 against St. George's.

 

Grace Christian of Knoxville made the smooth transition to DII and captured a district title in the process. Led by a pair of 2019 guards in C.J. Gettlefinger (Grace Christian) and Grant Ledford (Grace Christian). Gettlefinger secured a Mr. Basketball nomination and had a monster 34 point effort against CAK while Ledford has been a consistent scorer with 33 against CAK and 30 against First Baptist.

 

K.J. Johnson (Marshall County) has been turning heads all season now he's simply amazing everyone. The junior guard secured a Mr. Basketball nomination with effort including 43 against Community, 36 against Forrest and 35 against Central Magnet.

 

Darryl McElrath (Riverside) is a big time player. The senior guard is working his way up the charts with efforts like 39 markers against Chester County, 38 against Scott's Hill and 30 against Lexington.

 

Down in Franklin, Reece Glover (Franklin) is ripping apart nets and rewriting scorebooks. The junior sharp-shooter dropped 39 against Brentwood, 35 against Centennial and a mere 26 against Page to complete a nice couple weeks of action.

 

We told you last week to keep an eye on Ryley McClaren (Forrest). The sophomore marksman drained 51 points against Giles County.
