As we approach the preseason for high school basketball, we will take a look at some different categories of players and those that excel in those roles in different areas of the state. Today, we take a look at part two of some of the top shooters in the NOVA area of the state.
| 6’8” WF | Highland 2025
Ament has risen over the past year to be one of the top prospects in the entire country in the 2025 class, and he’s a part of a Highland team that will be the favorites to repeat for the VISAA D2 State Championship this year. Ament has a very unique skillset for his size as he’s able to handle the rock and get to spots where he can knock down shots both in the midrange and from deep, he can relocate on the wing and is very consistent in catch and shoot situations and he can post up and hit the fall away as well.
Chance Perkins | 6’1” WG | Highland 2025
Perkins was quietly the unsung hero for Highland last year in their run to the state championship, as he showed his ability to be a microwave scorer with his long range ability and he had a big summer showing he can flat out fill it up from deep with the best of them. He can come off the bench when he’s cold and it doesn’t take him long to get hot and knock down shots, he has effortless range from deep that goes beyond the NBA line and he can knock down shots both off the catch and off the bounce.
| 6’6” WF | South Lakes 2025
Scott was one of the biggest stock risers of the summer, as he became a nationally ranked prospect picking up offers from some of the top schools in the country and one the biggest reasons is the way he shoots it. He’s an all-around player on the wing with prototypical size and his unselfishness and defensive ability is impressive, but what translates along with that is that he is a knock down shooter from deep with great form, good footwork on the move and he is very consistent from deep too.
| 6’1” PG | St. Stephen’s St. Agnes 2025
Argabright has emerged as one of the best point guards in VA in the 2025 class getting the best of many of the top guards he’s been matched up with over the past few years, and while he’s known as a floor general he also is able to fill it up from multiple levels with his ability to make tough shots. He plays with great pace and is able to lull defenders to sleep and walk them down to get into his shot, he can move off the ball where he has good footwork and is a confident shooter form deep and when his team needs him to he can create his own shot and make tough shots from all over the floor.
| 6’3” CG | Evergreen Christian 2025
Britt is emerging as one of the more talented guards in the NOVA area, as he is a highly skilled guard who can impact the game in a number of different ways, and one of those in particular is his ability to shoot the ball from deep. The 6’3” combo guard is shifty off the bounce with the ability to create space and stop on a dime to get his shot off, he can move off the ball where he works well to get open and sets his feet quickly and he can come off screens and get to the midrange where he can knock down tough shots consistently as well.
