The Lake Charles Washington-Marion High (La.) 6-foot-6, 220-pound junior scored 21 points in a rout over Alexandria earlier in the week and his team will face Helen Cox tonight in the Class 4A regionals.
Washington couldn't even ponder a guess at his scoring or rebounding averages, but he did know that his team was 25-9 going into tonight's matchup.
``I think I'm playing well," Washington said. "I know I'm rebounding well, but I'm not playing as good on defense as I want to."
Washington, who was suspended earlier in the season for a couple of games for what he called a "little misunderstanding" with his high school coach, Mark Guillory, said he plans to play this spring and summer with Louisiana Select.
``I want to show people I can shoot the ball from the outside," Washington said of his goal this summer.
``That dude's amazing," he said.
The Longhorns are at, or near the top of Washington's list – along with LSU and Oklahoma. Washington also said that UConn, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Colorado State are in the mix.
