SHUKC Player Spotlight: Markeise Hall (Wyandotte)

Markeise Hall (Wyandotte)

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

Markeise Hall of Wyandoote had a strong senior campaign.  We spoke a lot about the contributions from Theo Bass and Deionta Nunnally but the Bulldogs were very thin on the front line.  When I say thin, I mean how much depth they had at the position.  Game after game I would think this would be a factor but Hall went above and beyond expectations on the glass and ability to finish around the rim.  The Bulldogs had a great team effort this year and Hall certainly played a big role in their success.  He put together some highlights of his senior season and they are noted below.

KCAL Boys Basketball Recap

Demarco Smith (Washington)
by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

The season is over and I gave myself a week to collect my thoughts on a fun season of basketball.  We came within a game of having back to back undefeated teams win state championships and saw 5 squads get to make a trip to state.  I wanted to give a short team by team look at what was lost in terms of seniors and a look at the future.  I will start in the KCAL and will work on the KVL.

The year of the Bulldog is definitely the feeling I walk away from this season.  I could not be happier for the school and Coach Kreiling for bringing Wyandotte back into the conversation as a contender in the KCAL.  Kreiling unlocked a talented group of seniors but here in lies the true challenge for him as we move forward.  How much of a rebuilding process will this be?  This scenario seems strikingly similar to that of Lansing and Piper of 2013, many seniors dominating all the minutes at the varsity level.  Time will tell who will develop and step up heading into next year.

Same drill as the girls.  We don't do honorable mention but take a moment to look to the future with acknowledging some young prospects.  My intention with our lists is that it is going to be exclusive.  Below are the 10 players that we believe stood out in regards to numbers and winning.  Yes I can rattle off another 5-10 names of players that had excellent seasons but I won't.  This is our opinion and our 2015 All SHUKC Boys Team.  Congrats to the players and coaching nominees.  We will hold our ceremony to announce winners and pass out trophies to mark the occasion.

Bobcats come up short against McPherson in final

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

The magical run for the Basehor-Linwood Bobcats was stopped just short of their 3rd state title.  The Bobcats fell to McPherson 74-60, in a foul ridden championship game.  Patrick Muldoon fought foul trouble through out the game.  After trailing by double digits in the first half, the Bobcats stormed back in the 3rd quarter but were never able to push past McPherson who pulled away late.

No player or coach will want to hear this but this season was filled with a lot of excitement and positive memories.  I thank each and every one of your for a magical run.  24-1 and a runner-up finish is a tremendous accomplishment.

Great season!!
