Updated scoring numbers heading into states
Looking at some of these numbers, I can't help but wonder where this 2011 basketball class ranks in terms of the best to come out of the area. In one class, we have the YAIAA's career scoring leader, its leading quad-A boys' scorer, and perhaps the best girls' player ever to come out of the area. Not too shabby. Here's a look at where a few of their scoring numbers stand heading into the start of the state basketball playoffs. Thanks to my colleague Jim Seip for putting them together. BOYSFour McGlynn, Dallastown, 1,823 pointsNotes: The senior guard is the school's all-time leading scorer, boys or girls. He's also the leading quad-A boys' scorer in YAIAA history, passing Spring Grove's Jared Smith (1,676). McGlynn led all YAIAA boys in scoring this season (23.6 ppg). Austin Tillotson, Eastern York, 1,821 pointsNotes: The senior points guard ranks second on the career scoring list at Eastern behind only teammate Andrew Nicholas. The Golden Knights have three of the league's top 10 scorers of all-time (includes Jon Raab, who scored 1,680 points).
