Some tough choices for player of the year

Selecting the player of the year on the boys and girls all-city basketball teams will be extremely difficult this year.

Last year it was pretty clear cut with Fair Park's Eric Tramiel and Airline's Emily Carter. This year no clear-cut choices have emerged.

Fair Park has two boys candidates, Morris Claiborne and Markcus Jackson. Like Fair Park, Huntington is a balanced team although Kendrick Washington may stand out a little above the rest.

Evangel's Kenny Franklin is having another good year, and Loyola's Charles Winborne is a big scorer.

On the girls side, Southwood is balanced as usual. So is Parkway and Bossier.
Southwood's Brittiany Houston and Jasmine Grant have both had stellar seasons. Parkway's Brittney Dukes and Chloe Woodington also have to be considered. And Bossier's Shaquilla Smith has come on of late.

Loyola's Ashley Jackson has also rebounded nicely after missing all but one game of last season with a knee injury. And Evangel's Vashni Sharp has led her team to the top of the District 1-1A standings.

And there are probably others out there.

I agree with your comments about the two Parkway girls. But you need to look a little closer. Opposing coaches are gearing their defense to stop Woodington based on her previous years. Many nights she faces a box and one, or double teams to stop her. By far, she is the most complete player, and if defended straight up is able to torch any team for 30 and get 5 assists.
