Basketball Colorado Media Notes: “The game MVP was Smoky Hill talented freshman Kenny Foster. The 6’3 wing is physically gifted, he is stronger, has better body control and can out jump most of his counter parts in his class. Expect Foster to compete for a starting role with Smoky Hill this season.”

BasketballColorado.com notes:”Daylen Kountz and Sam Masten are the best in the class of 2018 and Jon’il Fugett is coming on strong.
Kountz is special not only did he have 20 points in the sophomore game but he scored another 20 in the Top20 game. Masten was unable to play in the Top20 game because of a prior commitment. Possibly more on that later.
Kountz is a gifted scorer and there are only a select few that can stay with him when has the ball. He is a smooth ball handler and not a lot of wasted motion to get to his spots to score. A few players bowed out of the Top20 game due to illness or social engagement it allowing players like Kountz, 2018 Jon’il Fugett, and 2017 Ravel Moody to play in the top game and they showed that they belonged.”
Nick Holmes: 4 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal
