2020 MHSAA 4A Post Season Report

2020 MHSAA 4A Post Season Report

The stats used are stats listed on MaxPreps. You must have stats listed on MaxPreps to be eligible for Head of the Class, Starting Five and Senior Squad.

How do you get on the Magnolia Hoops Report? I put players on here that catch my eye or have a combined stat total of ten. Catching my eye could be leadership from the bench, really good players (without stats listed) or just hard play. Combined stat line of ten can be in any form. It’s doesn’t have to be points only. It can be any of the stats added up to make double-digits.

The Magnolia Hoops Head of the Class is the player with the best stat line by grade. The Magnolia Hoops Starting Five is the top five players with the best stat line for the entire season. The Magnolia Hoops Head Coach is the Coach that did the best job with their team. The Katie Roberts Photography Senior Squad is the top five seniors with the best stat lines.
