OAA BOYS BASKETBALL POWER RANKINGS: Backcourts, part 1

By: , December 10, 2019, 12:48 pm

Here are the first part of Scott Burnstein’s power rankings of the backcourt players in the Oakland Activities Association:

Point Guard

1 Keegan Wasilk (Clarkston Soph.) — Rock steady is a vast understatement.

2 Ethan Emerzian (Troy Jr.) — Killer instinct, hard-nosed, a lot of heart, a lot of hustle.

3 Trevor Smith (Stoney Creek Jr.) — Star in the making, maybe the most underrated guard in the league.

4 Justus Clark (North Farmington Sr.) — The perfect pace setter, pure heart and intelligence.

5 Freddy Garland (Oak Park Sr.) — Run-and-gun style of floor general, loves to push tempo, loves to compete.

Combo Guard

1 Jaden Akins (Farmington Jr.) — So much sizzle to his game, it’s downright frightening. Top overall guard in the state’s junior class.

2 Fletcher Loyer (Clarkston Soph.) — Steel-sharpens-steel type out of the backcourt, the consummate playmaker.

3 Trey Lewis (Ferndale Soph.) — Typhoon of terror whenever he has the rock in his hands.

4 Devonte Edwards (Oak Park Sr.) — Dead-eye shooter, whether mid-range or long range, cagey scorer.

5 Arshad Walker (Berkley Jr.) — The definition of a difference maker in the open court.
