Best Shooter

A lot of great shooters in the tourney this year including Michael Williams (Taft), Michael Panaggio (BM), Tre Tyler (Kentwood), Mardell Johnson (Rio Americano), Mitrell Clark (El Dorado), Kendall Marshall (BOC), Kendall Williams (Los Osos), Gary Hicks (Sylmar), and Darius Nelson (Sheldon). That’s a lot of names to see all written out. 

Darius Nelson was a sweet-shooting big man from Sheldon. He’s a very big bodied sophomore but he has a pretty jumper.

Mardell Johnson and Mitrell Clark were both nearly lights-out spot up jumpshooters in the Elite division.

Michael Williams of Taft had a really funky jumper, but it went in. He was lethal from 3-point range.

Gary Hicks of Sylmar was also a three-ball machine. He really shouldered the scoring load on that team, much more so than Tyler Honeycutt. Silky smooth jumper.

Michael Panaggio. Wow. Confident shooter who knew his role on the Montgomery team. Consistently great from 3-point range. Smart player with very good shot selection.

Tre Tyler was streaky and had bad shot selection but still a very good long range shooter.

Kendall Williams started off his first few games absolutely on fire, couldn’t miss…from anywhere. But then he cooled down, and he isn’t as good of a shooter as he originally thought. Still a phenomenal shooter (and a junior, too) and perfect from the charity stripe.

Kendall Marshall’s jumper lacked arc at times but always had a lot of backspin. Possibly the most revolutions on a shot I saw at the tournament. Very solid from deep. Only a junior, and I think he will keep improving. 

Winner: Frankly this award could go to so many players and I expect the non-seniors (Nelson, Marshall, K. Williams) to be even better next year. But I have to give it Michael Panaggio. I think his great shot selection, although Marshall’s was very comparable, was superb. He hit the big shots. Hicks, Marshall, Williams’s are all very close. Johnson was the best Elite shooter, with Clark a close second.
