When it comes to boys basketball, there are players you want to see and then there are players that you have to see.
These five players have placed themselves in the latter category. They are the ones worth the price of admission. They are the ones who can dazzle us as they weave their way through opposing defenders on their way in for a layup, make a quick pass to a teammate and steal the ball without being detected. They are:
Trahmier Burrell (Troy) -- A senior guard that has elevated the Flying Horses to the top of the Big 10 heap with his athleticism and scoring ability.
Jelani Currie (Albany Academy) -- The senior guard tends to fly under the radar because the Cadets play an independent schedule, but he's one of this area's best players with a 19.9 points per game average and quality leadership skills.
Cameron Dobbs (Guilderland) -- The Suburban Council's most explosive scorer (22.2 points per game), Dobbs can not only hurt you with a three-pointer or a layup on the run, but also with a pass to an open teammate.
Jordan Gleason (Watervliet) -- No Cannoneers game is complete without Gleason doing something to catch your eye at either end of the court whether it's a dunk on the break, a three-pointer that finds nothing but the bottom of the net or getting big air to pull down a rebound.
Collin Stewart (Mekeel Christian Academy) -- The only non-guard on the list, the 6-7 senior forward is as adept at hitting from the perimeter as he is at dunking the ball, which has led to a 28.6 points per game average.
