Phenom Hoops doesn’t just shed light on the top players in the state but we want to provide a platform for ALL players. The class of 2022 is still fully loaded with talent and there are plenty of players that are having a strong high school season that you may want to check out, especially if you are looking for players that can share the ball around. Here are the top 10 players in assists per game this season so far, according to MaxPreps.
|Braden Blakely||TC Roberson||5.9|
|G. Gobble||Sheets Memorial Christian||5.9|
|Zeke Cannedy||Kings Mountain||5.8|
|Anas Hasan||Research Triangle||5.7|
|Jeremiah Jones||East Lincoln||5.6|
|Orlando Lovejoy||1 of 1 Academy||5.6|
|DJ Cuttino||Concord Academy||5.6|
|Jaiden Coston||R-S Central||5.5|
Crest is having a terrific year and senior Mari Adams has been helping lead the way. Adams has been scoring effectively but also sharing the wealth with his teammates, leading the state in the Class of 2022 in assists per game at 6.7. Braden Blakely isn’t far behind at 5.9 assists per game and holds a 2.8 assist to turnover ratio through 19 games this season.
We talked about Zeke Cannedy and he isn’t just showing how he can be a prolific scorer but he is also averaging 5.8apg; he is showing that he can really have an impact all over the court at Kings Mountain.
2022 Ty’Chaun Clay is getting it done on both ends at Hunt high school and 2022 Jeremiah Jones is doing much of the same at East Lincoln. Both are leading the charge, using a balanced attack, and getting after it on the defensive end.
If you are looking for two strong, physical, and tough guards on the court, 1of1’s Orlando Lovejoy and Concord’s DJ Cuttino fit that mold. Lovejoy may be one of the more underrated guards in the state and have an incredible 4.33 AST/TO ratio. Cuttino has stepped up as well for Concord, getting all the talent involved.
R-S Central is one of the top teams in the state and 2022 Jaiden Coston has been a big part of the team’s success. He doesn’t need to be the scoring power for this team but is a big part of getting everyone involved on the court.
