We’ve reached the midway point of the 2018-19 Washington high school boys basketball season, which means it’s time to roll out our mid-season All-State basketball teams. Here’s a look at our all-classification first team, headlined by Gonzaga commit Anton Watson:
The versatile big man has signed with hometown school Gonzaga University. Watson continues to play well for Matty McIntyre’s ball-club as they look to repeat as 4A state champs.
Maybe the leader for state player of the year at the mid-season point. He has offers from some of the top programs in the country. At this point though, he’s focused on getting the Eagles a state title.
After signing with Michigan in the fall he continues to shine and play well for the 1A power from the NW corner of the state. This program is always in the hunt for a state title and Bajema could lead them to another.
The UW signee can flat out score and with his play as of late Marysville-Pilchuck is looking like a darkhorse to win the title at the 3A level. He may be the best shooter in the state.
A senior looking to lead his squad to a third straight state title before he heads off to Gonzaga next season. The shifty point guard can shoot it from deep and pass with the best of them.
Even though he’s battled injury this season he’s been a huge impact when on the floor. Many of the top programs in the country are heading to Seattle to check him out. His impact on the court is evident when you look at O’Dea’s recent tough stretch. They look to get back on track and if they do, Banchero will carry them to a deep run in the playoffs.
