Following standout years on the basketball court, several of the area’s top high school players have earned a spot on one of the state’s most prestigious lists.
Nya Threatt of the Dulles Lady Vikings (Class 6A), the Hightower Hurricanes’ Bryce Griggs (5A) and Z’Corrian Haynes of Stafford (4A) were recently named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches’ All-State teams in their respective classifications.
Threatt is coming off a season in which she led District 20-6A in scoring with 19.7 points per game along with 4.4 rebounds and 5.0 steals for the Lady Vikings, leading them to a 24-1 record and the program’s first regional semifinal playoff appearance since 2009. She was also a first-team all-district selection as well as the 20-6A Most Valuable Player.
Griggs continued his ascension on the Greater Houston scene with his third straight selection to the 5A boys all-state team. He averaged 22.6 points and 5.0 assists per game for the Hurricanes, who won their first outright district championship in more than a decade before falling in the area round of the playoffs.
It was the latest accolade for Griggs, who is also a finalist for the 2021 Guy V. Lewis award – given annually to the Greater Houston boys basketball player of the year – for a second straight season.
Haynes was a key piece of a Stafford team that went 19-6 last season. The Spartans won the District 25-4A title and reached the Region IV-4A semifinals before falling to Somerset.
