In anticipation of the upcoming 2011-12 Washington high school basketball season, we take a second look at the recent 2011 state championship winners. The conventional approach to determining the future is to look at recent history in order to attempt to gauge what will happen next. Even though the past does not equal the future, when it comes to basketball, homage must be paid to the champions and the money must be placed squarely on the experienced shoulders of the victors. JuniorHoops.com salutes the 2010-11 season winners with this walk through recent memory lane. Congratulations state champions for reaching the pinnacle of high school basketball success.
2011 Washington High School Boys Basketball State Champions
Demarquise Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 185-pound senior from Arizona's Westwind Prep decided to take his game to the PAC-12 Conference and play for Washington State and head coach Ken Bone.
Johnson led Westwind Prep Academy to the 2011 2A State championship last season. He has returned to the program as a post-graduate this season.
According to the Arizona Preps Scouting Report: "Demarquaise handles the basketball very well in the open floor, shoots long range, can create his own shot, and plays with very good body control. Also a good finisher in transition, a highlight reel dunker and a slasher in traffic. Has good defensive skills with the ability to block and change shots. Solid rebounder but can be better in this area."
