Name: Bryan Antoine
Stats: 21 points, 4 rebounds and 3 steals per game in 2017.
Accolades: ESPN Top 15 player in the 2019 class, 3rd team All-State in 2017.
Projection: 2nd Team All-State
Why they’re on the list: For some, the game just looks easy.
Bryan Antoine is the total package. He has great size and athleticism at the point guard position. He can take the game above the rim in a heartbeat with his otherworldly bounce.
What makes Antoine so special is what he does without shooting the ball. Ranney revamped last year and added a couple new pieces. Bryan did a great job making it all make sense on offense due to his ability to create scoring opportunities for others. It was clear he has great synergy with his teammates and has a high basketball I.Q. On defense, BA locks up and plays the passing lanes with the best of them. During the 2016-2017 season, Antoine averaged 3.5 steals per game.
Many critics are saying this is the year Ranney makes their first deep run. Everyone is watching to see how they perform. Something tells me that Bryan is about to do something special come tourney time.
Stat to know: Bryan is on pace to break 2,000 points in his career.
