Ryan’s Top Five Point Guards In The WCAC


There are many great players in the WCAC. But in this article I will list my top five point guards in the WCAC this season. The list I came up with was based on more than how many points they score a game. Instead, it’s based on their overall production and how well they have helped their team this season.

Honorable Mentions 

Jamaal King- Bishop O’Connell

Bryant Crawford- Gonzaga

1. Anthony Cowan Jr. (St. John’s) 

There was no question why the Maryland commit is at the top of my list. This season he has been one the best players if not the best player in the WCAC this season. He leads the conference in scoring as he averages 19.8 points per game. He scored 26 in the last game against Gonzaga and he scored 30 or more points in three games this year. Cowan is a great shooter especially from behind the arc. He also has the ability to get into the paint, score and draw fouls. Anthony has helped St. John’s be the second best team in the WCAC and be a contender for the WCAC Championship this season.

2. Jamir Moultrie (Bishop McNamara) 

Bishop McNamara has played their best basketball in a while. They are the fifth best team in the WCAC with a 17-8 record and 10-6 record in the conference. One of the biggest reasons for the team’s success this year is their sophomore guard Jamir Moultrie. Moultrie is third in the WCAC in scoring with 18 point per game. He also leads the conference in three point field goals as he has knocked down 60 three’s this season. Jamir ability to score and knock down three’s as helped McNamara beat teams like St. John’s, O’Connell, and Paul VI. Jamir is going to be a player to watch when playoffs come along and since he is only a sophomore, he would definitely be a player to look out for in the future.

 3. Terrell Allen (DeMatha)  

There are a lot of reasons why DeMatha is the best basketball team in the state of Maryland and a top ten team in the country. They are lead by a great coach in Mike Jones and they have very talented players. Out of that talented group of players, senior guard Terrell Allen has played a huge factor for the Stags. In his third year as the starting point guard for DeMatha, has been a true senior leader for the team. Unlike guards Cowan, and Moultrie, Terrell is more of a floor general. He runs the offense well and makes sure everyone gets involved. Even though Allen only averages 8.6 points per game, he still has the ability to score at a high rate. Another reason why I put Terrell Allen at number three is that he is a great defender. Allen is good at guarding his man and generating turnovers.

4. Chris Lykes (Gonzaga)

In his first two years as a Purple Eagle, Chris Lykes as truly has been one of the top players on that Gonzaga team. Don’t underestimate Chris because of his height; he is a really good point guard. Lykes lead the team in scoring last year and this year he is second in the team in scoring as he averages 13.9 points per game. Chris is an excellent scorer that has a constant jump shot and can get inside to score the easy basket.

5. Aaron Thompson (Paul VI)

Rounding off my list is Paul VI guard Aaron Thompson. Just like Terrell, Aaron is not a score first point guard but he plays a key part on a Paul VI that has players like Franklin Howard and VJ King. Thompson has good ball handling skills, and has the ability to pass the ball and create plays. One of the biggest reasons why Aaron is on my list is his defense. Aaron is a really solid defender and is good at getting steals.
