Shane Tapley ,#22, is Sacramento HS's leading scorer.

Armond "Mondo" Armstead, Pleasant Grove high School – being tripled teamed by St-Mary's HS of Stockton. When will they learn that they're still 2 players short of even slowing him down. Armond's off to USC to play football this fall and we'll miss watching him play on the hard wood.
