1. Greg Elliot & David Dejulius – Detroit East English Village Prep

Without question, this is the best scoring duo in the entire state, regardless of position. Both Elliot and Dejulius have proven that they can score in any way possible, whether it’s knocking down the outside shot or driving to the basket, they can do it all.

2. Foster Loyer & Dylan Alderson – Clarkston

Loyer is the best passer in the entire state and has shown early on this season that he can score with the best of them as well. Alderson is about as steady of a player and is a guarantee to score at least 15-20 points every time he steps out on the court, but is more than capable of putting together a 30-point effort at any time.

3. Darian Owens-White & Drequan Bell – River Rouge

One of the most complete backcourts around, Owens-White is about as versatile of a point guard as you’ll find in the state of Michigan, capable of creating for himself and others in multiple ways, while Bell is as good of a pure scorer as there is in all of Class B.

4. Christian Rodriguez & Lamar Norman – Wyoming Godwin Heights

Two of the more underrated guards in the state to begin with, Rodriguez and Norman are about as dangerous as any guard combination. Rodriguez has proven multiple times over the past couple of years that he can pass and score at a high level, while Norman as shown he can score with some of the best in the state with his elite athleticism.

5. (Tie) Brandon Wade & Jack Ammerman – Ann Arbor Skyline

Wade is off to an impressive start this season and has established himself as one of the state’s top guards for the class of 2018, and both he and Ammerman have proven to be steady, capable scorers since both became impact players as freshmen for Skyline.

5. (Tie) Carl Bow Jr. & David Hearns – Hazel Park

It’s pick your poison with these two guards, because both Bow and Hearns are capable of burning opposing teams each and every game they play as both are very good at driving through the lane and getting to the basket and drawing contact as well.
