Dakarai Allen (Sheldon, Sacramento)
Facing a Jesuit of Carmichael team that has been ranked in the state top this season he came up with a huge performance to lead the Huskies to victory as he scored 29 points, had four steals and blocked three shots in a 88-70 Delta River League game.

Bobby Alvarado (Mission Oak, Tulare)
The sophomore standout scored a career-high of 33 points in a 55-40 win by his team over Cesar Chavez of Delano in a East Yosemite League game.

Eric Ambrose (Rolling Hills Prep, San Pedro)
The Huskies remained undefeated in Coastal League play as he scored 31 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a 70-50 win over Wildwood of Los Angeles.

Payton Banks (Lutheran, Orange)
With standout Gabe York on the bench, Banks has stepped up his game. He scored 30 points in losses last week to Mater Dei and JSerra.

Ivo Basor (Watsonville)
Ivo became a 20-20 man, and at the same time he gave Seaside the proverbial heave-ho, after registering 25 points and 20 rebounds in a surprisingly easy 64-38 victory.
