McKnight looks to be a very good signing by Dr. Reed. At Langham Creek High School, he played in a 5A league. And….he led the league in scoring (24 PPG), assists (6.2 A/G), and Free Throws (most attempts and highest percentage made at 78%). http://www.langhamcreekbasketball.com/15_5A_Sats.html
With the loss of our starting point guard for the past four years, this will be a critical position to be filled next season and the competition looks to be intense. Small was the primary back-up at the point guard last year, but sometimes it seems his game has not progressed tremendously over the past three years. Shamis may well be back and be another year recovered from his injury. And then there is newcomers B.J. Bailey and Mackey McKnight. Both players look to be solid.
Marquis is leaving some very big shoes to fill, but we have contenders for the role. Given Reed’s propensity to tilt towards youth, I expect Bailey and/or McKnight will be given the opportunity to lose the starting point guard position.
