Class A Player of the Week

Class A Underclassman of the Week
Brandon Johns 6-8 So East Lansing: In wins over DeWitt and Jackson, Johns had 21 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks and 23 points, 11 rebounds.
Class B Player of the Week
Quinn Crago 6-6 Sr Cadillac: Last season he was finding his way after coming in from Class D Heritage Christian. As a senior Crago is looking like an all-stater. He started with 38 points and 12 rebounds against Reed City then 11 points and 18 rebounds against Alpena. Cadillac is 2-0.
Class B Underclassman of the Week
Markeese Hastings 6-4 So Wyoming Godwin Heights: A bright spot as defending state champion Godwin Heights lost to Hudsonville in their season opener, Hastings scored 18 points.
Class C Player of the Week
Danny Pippen 6-8 Sr Detroit Allen: He did it all in Allen’s defeat of Southfield, finishing with 32 points, 16 rebounds and nine blocked shots. Pippen signed early with Kent State and has the potential to be the best future MAC forward out of Detroit since Michael Williams was at City High in 2000.

David DeJulius 5-11 So Detroit Edison
He scored 36 points in a win over Novi, a Class A team with a D1 recruit at guard in senior Kameron Hankerson. He had 21 in a loss to Class A Detroit Renaissance, also with a D1 senior guard Justin Turner.
Class D Player of the Week
Marcus Matelski 6-2 Sr Boyne Falls: He has an outside chance to end up a top 10 all-time scorer. The Loggers only have seven players so he’ll have his shots and more. Matelski scored 32 against both Johannesburg-Lewiston and Ellsworth, then 39 points, 11 rebounds and eight steals in a win over Pellston.
Class D Underclassman of the Week
Jaylon Rogers 5-10 So Frankfort: He scored 16 in the Panthers’ win over Boyne City, a 2015 Class C semifinalist, after opening the year with 12 in a blowout of Chippewa Hills.
