The first week of high school basketball got us off to a great start with some excellent team and individual performances. The first TheTB5Reports Starting 5 features two dynamic sophomore's, an Arkansas commit, one of the top point guard's in the country, a Butler signee and a sniper from Duncanville.
2022 Richardson 6'6 G Rylan Griffen
Rylan started the season with a bang on Friday night. The sophomore guard had 42 points in a win for Richardson HS. Griffen is one of the top prospects regardless of class in Dallas. He's off to a hot start in what I believe will be an excellent sophomore campaign.
2022 Lewisville 6'4 G Keyonte George
Keyonte put together two excellent games at the Cowtown Tip-Off. One of the top 2022 prospects in the country scored 28 in a tough loss Friday and scored 31 the next day in a win over Faith Family. Keyonte's ability to score from all three levels coupled with his high IQ and athleticism make him almost impossible to guard at this level. He showed this weekend he is Top 10 in the country.
2021 Duncanville 6'1 G Juan Reyna
Juan put on a shooting exhibition that will be hard for anybody to duplicate this year or any year for that matter. The sniper went 9-14 from three and finished with 31 points in a win over Lancaster. He was big time for the Panthers this weekend. Reyna will be a key piece in Duncanville's effort to repeat as Texas 6A State Champions.
2021 Desoto 6'7 F Duncan Powell
Duncan was dominant in the Desoto win over Waco Midway finishing with 24 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks. He made big play after big play to propel his team to the win. Powell looks to be in for a big junior season at Desoto.
2020 Denton Guyer 6'8 F JaKobe Coles
JaKobe was one assist short of a triple double in a dominant performance over Mansfield Timberview. Coles finished with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists in a blowout win. The Butler signee looked excellent and was in total control of the game for Guyer.
2020 Lancaster 6'3 PG Mike Miles
Mike Miles' team lost a tough one to Duncanville but his performance was one of the best of the weekend. Miles finished with 32 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in a loss to Duncanville. He was dominant in his performance scoring from all over the floor and keeping Lancaster in the game until the end.
