Prep boys' basketball preview five to watch

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDDecember 13, 2013 

FIVE PLAYERS TO WATCH

Evan Miksovsky

Sehome

Sr., Guard

Miksovksy is the Mariners' only senior, but his high-energy and scrappy play gives Sehome's up-and-comers a great player to model their game after. The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 11.7 points per game last year and should score plenty this winter.

Reuben Murashov

Mount Baker

Sr., Forward

Murashov has a sweet stroke from deep and can also penetrate. He scored 20-plus four times last year and his 13.4 points per game proved he's one of the top scorers in the Northwest Conference.

Austin Honeycutt

Ferndale

So., Post

The Golden Eagles are one of the youngest teams in the Northwest Conference, but Honeycutt is young and has a lot of talent. He is extremely versatile and has the ability to fill up a stat sheet.

Josiah Westbrook

Blaine

So., Guard

Like Honeycutt, Westbrook established himself as a premier scorer during his freshman season. The quick, athletic guard should shoulder the scoring load again this year but will need help from other players to improve Blaine's success.

Kailen Hayes

Bellingham

Jr., Guard/Forward

Hayes' 13.3 points per game last season ranked just outside the Northwest Conference's top 10 scoring leaders. He'll look to lead an up-tempo Bellingham club that can run and get out and score in transition.
