LSJ prep athlete of week: Haslett’s Brandon Allen

By

The Haslett boys basketball team has been in good shape with Brandon Allen running the show.

And that’s been evident throughout the Vikings’ 9-1 start to the season.

The junior point guard has had a strong first half to the season and that included a pair of strong performances last week in victories over Portland and Owosso. Allen set the school-record for 3-pointers in a game with eight while scoring 28 in a victory over Portland and followed with 22 points in a 60-55 victory over Owosso.

“I just try to do my best and try to score points for my team,” said Allen, who was voted the LSJ athlete of the week. “That’s kind of been my role is to try to score and get assists.

“We’re in first place right now in our league and I’m just really excited for our team.”

Allen followed up his strong week by hitting the game-winning layup with four seconds left in Haslett’s 77-76 win over Holt on Tuesday.

“It was a big win for Haslett for sure,” Allen said. “It was just crazy.”

Allen is averaging 21.9 points, 5.0 assists, 2.5 steals and ranks among the area’s leaders with 31 made 3-pointers.
