Below are this week’s American Family Insurance ALL-USA Western Washington Performers of The Week for boys basketball. For performances to be considered in the future, please send stats to HSSports@king5.com. Also, don’t forget to vote for this week’s top performance at the bottom of this post!
Hafid Yassin, Chief Sealth — In his two games this week, Yassin scored 12 and 13 points, but he makes this list for another reason. The 6-foot-5 senior guard owned the No. 1 play on Sportscenter’s Top 10 for this incredible dunk.
Nate Pryor, West Seattle — Pryor started his week off with 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals against O’Dea, and finished with 30 against Eastside Catholic. He’s averaging 21.8 points per game this season.
Jaylen Nowell, Garfield — After being named the MVP of the Las Vegas Prep Championship over winter break, Nowell had a strong return to Metro league play. In Tuesday’s 96-55 win over Chief Sealth, he had 28 points, nine rebounds, and four assists. He followed that up by dropping 30 for the Bulldogs in a big win over No. 10 Lakeside on Friday.
Dejounte Murray, Rainier Beach — He makes this list yet again because of last Tuesday’s big stat-line: Murray triple-doubled with 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists. In the Vikings’ win over O’Dea on Friday, he scored 20.
Nathan Aune, Arlington — He scored just seven points on Tuesday against Edmonds Woodway, but was the source of the biggest play of the night. Aune hit a buzzer beater to complete a double-digit comeback for Arlington. He followed up Tuesday’s heroics with a 25-point performance on Friday. But ironically, the Eagles lost to Marysville-Pilchuck at the buzzer.
