We are 3/4ths through the high school basketball season in Jefferson County, a Covid-era achievement made possible by the tireless work of coaches, players, families, and administrators. I thought it would be a good time to take a deep dive into the numbers to see which players are making big impacts for their team on both ends of the floor. You’ll find some names on these lists that you are used to hearing over the past few years. You’ll also find some new names that might surprise you!

The statistical data comes from STL High School Sports, using numbers supplied directly by the schools by 11:59PM on 1/25/21. County leaders are ranked by per-game average or percentage. My summary is below the data table. Let’s first take a look at the boys:
