The annual All A Classic is coming up next week and there is quite a bit of talent headed to Richmond to compete for our “small school” state championship. Here’s a look at some of the players to watch in the Thursday Evening session of the All A Classic.
One of the state’s leading scorers and the best unsigned Senior in the class, Meyer is coming off a Junior season where he led the entire country in scoring but has been more of a facilitator this year. Jacob is an explosive athlete who gets into the paint and finishes regularly. He’s likely to put on a show this week in Richmond.
Barnes has had a really strong season thus far for the Admirals after a transfer from Boyle County. Leading the team in scoring at 18 per game and second in rebounding at 6 per game, Owen checks a lot of boxes for Coach McKinney’s squad. Danville has 4 players in double figures per game but doesn’t have much of a bench. Look for their game against Holy Cross to be high scoring.
UHA seems to be a consistent figure at the All A and Northington could come to Richmond and make a big name for himself with a good showing this week. Lemar is averaging 16 points on shooting splits of 58-51-88 but rarely gets to the free throw line. Look for him to make a living in the midrange and getting to the rim this weekend.
Brian is likely to be the 3rd region player of the year when the dust settles on the season. Griffith is the engine that makes Coach Riley’s offense go and has helped get the Aces to an 18-2 record this season. A volume scorer with a quick first step, Brian is a three level scorer that can get the ball in the basket from anywhere on the court so defenses have to play him straight up.
