Best high school player or team you’ve seen
« on: June 26, 2020, 07:55:16 pm »
I stole this thread from the 4a football board. Thought it could apply to basketball as well. Doesn’t have to be 4a. Any class will do.

Dusty Hannahs and Austin Reeves are 2 that I saw personally that stand out to me off the top of my head. And I watched that Forrest City game On you tube where Reeves had 71 points I believe. He was unreal in that game.

That Clarksville team that beat PA for the title Hannahs and Henry’s senior year was pretty good. Batesville girls 2018-19. They were special. Bentonville girls this year also..wow

Best Arkansas high school player I’ve seen in person is Isaac McBride. I never saw anyone able to lock him down regardless of classification.

The best high school player I saw in person was Corliss Williamson. Joe Johnson and James Anderson are 2a and 2b.

The best team was probably LR Central Joe’s senior year.

I remember watching him and Josh Smith of Prairie Grove in the 90's play against each other one time. Still can't believe Josh Smith averaged 33 ppg his junior and senior season both seasons. So impressive to average 1 point per minute played. You actually know he was pulled early in at least a few blowout wins  too and still averaged 33 per game.

Only seen him 3 or 4 times... But watched him score 50+ in a loss to Russellville...

I only saw him once and even as a 9th grader on defense he was locking down the other teams best player in the regional finals when I saw him play. He had the two Vanovers then and was only a 9th grader so he didn't have the same offensive role yet, but he had the motor and drive already. You could see the potential even at 14 or 15 years old.

Best team I ever saw play was probably the Mills team the 2016-2017 season.

I've been fortunate to be around Arkansas basketball for the better part of the last 20 years. Here is a list of the best players I've seen.

Malik Monk - Bentonville
Bobby Portis - LR Hall
Jalen Jackson - West Memphis
Dusty Hannahs - PA
Freddy Lee - Clarksville
Austin Reaves - Cedar Ridge (watched him toy with Charleston in the title game)
RJ Glasper
Shawn Williams (Watched him and Glasper duke is out in the title game)
Payton Willis
Anton Beard
IJ Ready
James Anderson
Kevaughn Allen
Tevin Brweer

There have been other good players, but these were men among boys in high school.

James Anderson was the best I played against and seen in person.

Remember being at Arkansas Tech and going to Danville I believe to watch him play in the playoffs... took my roommate and the first night he had an off night... had 18 midway through the 4th in a very tight game... he ended up scoring 15 in a row to close out the game... we ended up going again the next night and he put up 45 to get to the semis or state championship game. Didnt attend the state title game but he outscored the other team by himself.

He scored 45 on us at Dual state... my box and one defense on him was non existent..lol

Corliss by far was the best I ever say play, but the 92 Parkview team was the best team.

78 West Memphis Blue Devils with Keith Lee & Michael Cage hands down. 60-0 over 2 seasons, both future D1 All Americans & NBA players.
