2019 Scorebook Live All-State Boys Basketball
Eason, a 6-8 forward, is one of the best big men in the state, and he had an incredibly efficient performance at the 4A state tournament. Over three games at the Tacoma Dome he averaged 17.7 points and 8 rebounds while shooting 62 percent from the field. He already holds an offer from Washington State.
Northrop, a 6-4 guard, torched the nets at the Tacoma Dome, scoring 100 points over four games to lead Richland to a fourth-place finish. He put on one of the most impressive shooting performances of the tournament against Kentridge, scoring 36 points on 14-of-20 shooting, including 8-of-12 from the 3-point line.
Whitman, a 6-4 wing, led Lynden to its second consecutive 2A state title, averaging 23 points and 5.3 rebounds over three tournament games. He was named the 2A tournament MVP and the 2A player of the year by the WIBCA. He will team up with Curtis’ Zack Paulsen and Kelso’s Shaw Anderson at Seattle Pacific next season.
Mullins was a big reason the Wildcats reached the 4A state championship game, reeling off 20 consecutive victories along the way. A sweet-shooting 6-6 guard, Mullins can fill up the stat sheet in a hurry. In a league title-clinching victory over Issaquah in early February, Mullins had 22 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds and 5 steals.
One of the best two-way players in the state, Williams was the steady hand behind O’Dea’s run to the 3A state championship. In the title game romp over Mt. Spokane Williams had 19 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. Williams, a 6-4 combo guard, has an offer from Washington, but has not committed to a college yet.
The 6-6 Patterson is a lockdown defender and a pure shooter. The KingCo 4A defensive player of the year, Patterson can guard multiple positions. During the Wildcats run to the 4A state title game, Patterson teamed with Jabe Mullins to stifle opposing backcourts, holding Curtis to under 38-percent from the field.
Lloyd, the son of Gonzaga assistant coach Tommy Lloyd, might be the best shooter in the state. The 6-5 junior put on a 3-point shooting clinic in the first quarter of Gonzaga Prep’s semifinal win over Federal Way, sinking four deep 3’s to stake the Bullpups to a 25-10 lead. He holds an offer from Eastern Washington, but it’s a safe bet he will have multiple high-major offers very soon.
Osborn, who broke Dan Dickau’s career scoring record at Prairie, hit clutch shot after clutch shot to lead the Falcons on a 14-game winning streak and an upset of Kelso in the 3A bi-district championship game. A 6-1 point guard, Osborn will play for Oregon Tech next season.
