A look at the players on the Seattle Times all-area boys basketball team.
6-4, Sr., Bothell
One of the area’s pre-eminent and most versatile scorers, LaVine has scored at least 30 points 12 times and crossed the 40-point barrier twice. He can dunk, knock down fadeaway jumpers and shoot NBA three-pointers. The UCLA signee is averaging an area-high 28.8 points.

6-6, Sr., Garfield
A versatile player who does a little of everything for No. 1 Garfield, Haymond is averaging more than 18 points. He scored 39, including 20 in the first quarter, against then-No. 2 Bothell and stepped up big in fourth quarters all year. He will play at Western Michigan.
6-6, Sr., Seattle Prep
Always a good player, Fenner took his game to another level. He scored at least 30 points 11 times and less than 20 points only twice. In two loser-out games, he helped his team reach the playoffs by scoring 42 and 33 points. The Nevada signee is averaging 28.2 points.
6-7, Jr., Rainier Beach
In his first year at Beach after moving from California, Aaron lived up to his hype. He scored at least 31 points three times in a four-game stretch, including a season-high 38 against West Seattle. He’s also a good enough passer and ballhandler to play point guard and is verbally committed to Louisville.
6-5, Jr., Jackson
Todd is about as complete a player as there is in the Seattle area. He’s a capable scorer, averaging 22.2 points and has scored at least 10 in every game. He scored 30 or more four times. He’s also Jackson’s leading rebounder and best defender.
Coach of the year
Tavio Hobson, Lakeside
In his fourth year, Hobson has turned around a once-downtrodden Lakeside program. The Lions are No. 1 in Class 3A and won the Sea-King 3A District title. Under Hobson’s direction, Lakeside made the playoffs for the first time since 1991.
