2019 ALL-XFINITY ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAMS ANNOUNCED
After much thought we present you with the CAPITOL HOOPS 2019 All-Xfinity-All-Tournament-Team.
Stats play a huge role in deciding the teams, but watching the flow of the game and seeing how each player left their mark on the games this weekend was also huge. All tournament team is solely decided on how players played in their game(s) at Xfinity Center, not just the championship game but their overall performance in both games (or the rare scenario that they made this list and only played 1 game). Regular season play and regional playoff play had no bearing. Winning was the most important factor. You won’t find many players who didn’t win a state championship on the first team. Where you are going to college, or what AAU team you play for has no bearing whatsoever on our votes.
Most Outstanding Player
# Armon Harried – Lake Clifton @wb_nuke
A lot of players had big performances in the 2019 Maryland state finals but nobody dominated like Armon Harried. In the 1A Championship game, his 35-point performance was the highest scoring output at the University of Maryland since 2008. Not only did Harried lead all players in scoring, he was 1 of just 3 players to average a double-double. For the tournament he averaged 31 ppg, 12.5 rpg, 3 spg on 47.7% shooting.
# Michael Gray – Lake Clifton @Rated_Gray
Gray was dynamite in helping Harried lead Lake Clifton to the 1A title. He averaged 21.5 ppg, 5 rpg while shooting 48.5% from the field and 75% on 3-pointers. Gray only committed 3 turnovers in his 2 games at Xfinity,
# Marvin Price – Patterson @marvinprice_
Price was absent from Xfinity last year, but claimed his 2nd state title in his 2nd season in a Patterson uniform. Price averaged 26 ppg, 9 rpg, 3 blocks per game and led the tournament with a 62.5% field goal percentage. Price had one of the best halves of basketball we saw, putting up 21 points in the first half of the 2A title game.
#* Justin Lewis – Poly @jusbuckets_5
Lewis makes first team All-Xfinity for the 2nd year in a row, helping lead Poly to its 3rd consecutive state title. Despite not playing a full share of minutes due to lopsided scores, Lewis finished the tournament finish 15.5 ppg, 7 rpg, 4 apg, and 4.5 blocks per game. Don’t be surprised to see Lewis on this list again next year,
# Brandon Murray – Poly @IamBm23
Like Lewis, Murray didn’t get a full share of minutes due to Poly’s overwhelming success, but made the most of every second he was on the court. Murray was a stat-sheet stuffer, averaging 15.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 3.5 apg, 1.5 blocks per game, 2.5 steals per game, all while shooting 54.2% from the field and only committing one turnover. Murray had one of the best dunks of the tournament, throwing down a beautiful windmill to put the exclamation point on Poly’s state title.
# Cameron Brown – Eleanor Roosevelt @CBrown_3
Brown had arguably the best half of basketball of any player in this tournament, and delivered the best play of the tournament, throwing down a vicious and-1 poster in transition in the 4A title game. Brown had 19 points at halftime in the championship game and crucial buckets for an ER squad that found themselves down early to Broadneck. Brown averaged 20 PPG, 10.5 RPG, 3APG, and 2.5 steals per game.
# Rahim Ali – Poly @RAHaliJr
Ali had a great tournament for Poly, filling the stat sheet with 14.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 6 apg, and 4.5 steals per game all while committing only 1 turnover and going 13 of 14 from the line.
# Jalen Willis – Patterson
Willis was a beast for Patterson, putting up 13 ppg, 9 rpg, 2.5 apg, and 2 steals per game on 55% shooting.
# Gerard Mungo – Patterson @Gmungo5
Mungo was another key player for Patterson, averaging 11.5 ppg, 5 rpg, 5 apg and hitting all 8 of his free throws.
Tyler Rodeheaver – Southern-Garrett @RodeheaverTyler
Rodeheaver was the best player for a surprising Southern-Garrett team that made its way to the 1A title game. Rodeheaver averaged 17.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, and hit 7 of 11 3pt attempts.
Josh Odunowo – Reservoir @Slimhunchoo
Odunowo was 1 of 3 players to average a double-double, putting up 14.5 ppg, 13.5 rpg, and 1.5 blocks per game for a Reservoir team that finished runner up in the 3A title game.
Dorian Stevens – Wicomico @dgoat0
Stevens had a huge semifinal game for Wicomico, recording 26 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals while also going 6 of 10 from downtown.
Jamar Young – Broadneck @jamaryoung_2001
Young got buckets at Xfinity, averaging 20 ppg, 5.5 rpg for a Broadneck team that had a very impressive showing at Xfinity.
# Isaiah Gross – Eleanor Roosevelt @IsaiahG_25
Despite not having his usual offensive explosion, Gross was a major factor in ER’s 4A title, averaging 13 ppg, 5.5 rpg while going 11 of 13 from the line and only committing 1 turnover.
# Kyle Rose – Eleanor Roosevelt @KRose____
Rose was an outstanding floor general for ER, averaging 5 ppg, 7 rpg, 6.5 apg, and 3.5 spg. Rose led the tournament in assists. The Rock Creek Christian transfer was an integral part of ER’s success.
# Jaamir Butler – Eleanor Roosevelt @yame_e4j
Butler averaged 12.5 ppg, 1.5 apg, 2.5 steals per game and provided a needed spark for ER in the 4a title game with tough defense and relentless hustle.
