Terrific 10

Nate Brazil

Imani Christian

6-0, senior, G

PIAA transfer rules forced Brazil to sit out the postseason a year ago, but this time, he played a leading role in Imani Christian winning back-to-back WPIAL and PIAA Class A titles. Brazil averaged a team-best 19.8 points for the Saints, highlighted by a 48-point effort in a PIAA semifinal win over Bishop Carroll. He has Hofstra among his college options.

Rowan Carmichael

Avonworth

5-11, junior, G

WPIAL Class 4A was full of terrific scorers this winter and Carmichael was right there among the best. He averaged 21.3 points and came through with a 36-point effort in a WPIAL quarterfinal win.

Brandin Cummings

Lincoln Park

The Pitt recruit averaged 24.6 points and made a team-high 85 3-pointers that helped Lincoln Park repeat as WPIAL and PIAA Class 4A champions. He also won a WPIAL title as a freshman and capped his career with a 37-point performance in the state finals for 2,224 career points.

Max Hurray

North Catholic

6-2, senior, G

A standout shooter, Hurray averaged 23.9 points for a team that reached the WPIAL and PIAA quarterfinals.

A Lehigh recruit, Kramer averaged 22 points and six rebounds for Hampton, which reached the WPIAL Class 4A finals and the state semifinals. He made 79 3-pointers as one of the WPIAL’s top shooters. This year’s was his second time in the finals, having won a WPIAL title as a sophomore at Shady Side Academy. He graduates with 1,670 career points.

Josh Pratt

Aliquippa

6-1, sophomore, G

Some of Pratt’s top performances came in his biggest games. He had 33 points in a WPIAL finals win over Greensburg Central Catholic and scored 37 in a state finals victory over Holy Cross. Overall, he averaged a team-best 17 points. Pratt was the Quips’ only starter that didn’t also play football, but his singular focus paid off. He recently added his first offer from Hofstra.

Lincoln Park

6-4, junior, G

Thomas showed again why top college teams are recruiting him. He averaged a double-double with 23.5 points and 10.8 rebounds and added six assists and three steals per game as Lincoln Park defended its WPIAL and PIAA titles. The Leopards are 58-4 combined over the past two seasons. Thomas’ college offers includes UConn, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky, among others.
