Mr. Basketball January Power Rankings

1 Lorne Bowman (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s G) — Best player on the best team in the state.

2 Carlos “Scooby” Johnson (Benton Harbor F) — Perfect combination of power and finesse.

3 Ryan Rollins (Macomb Dakota G) — Dark horse dandy making a push up the leader board with a phenomenal first month of the season.

4 Isaiah Jackson (Waterford Mott F) — Just a specimen in the frontcourt, freakish finishing ability around the rim or on the fast break.

5 Matt Nicholson (Clarkston C) — Pure domination in the paint, most fundamentally sound big Metro Detroit has seen since Bloomfield Hills’ Yante Maten (Georgia/NBA).

6 Tyson Acuff (Detroit Cass Tech G) — Electricity personified at the point guard position.

7 Jalen Terry (Flint Beecher G) — A Flintstone floor general with a lot of swagger and even more sizzle to his game.

8 Da’Jion “Bubba” Humphrey (Southfield Christian G/F) — Maybe the strongest-willed player in the state, all heart, hustle and flow.
