D.J. Fenner

School: Seattle Prep Yr: Sr. Ht: 6-6 Pos: G College: Nevada

Lakeside coach Tavio Hobson: "I've always known he had the ability. Everyone has. What D.J. has done this year is he's embraced the idea of being a team player. People see his points and think he's jacking up shots. But he's playing off his teammates, and his teammates are playing off him."

Seattle Prep coach Mike Kelly: "He's wired to score ... he's always going to have this drive that he can score at any time, in any situation and on anybody. When he's playing well and sharing the ball, at its best, it's really effective for us because he's so aggressive. ... As far as just a scorer, he is as good an offensive player as Prep's ever seen."

Memorable moment: Fenner had the most clutch game of his season against Rainier Beach, then ranked No. 7 in the nation by MaxPreps. He missed all five of his shots in the third quarter and Beach led by as many as 12. But in the fourth, Fenner got 16 of his game-high 28 points. He hit 6 of 10 shots, four three-pointers, and blocked a game-tying layup attempt in the final seconds.

Key stats: Fenner finished second in the area in scoring at 27.3 points per game. He scored fewer than 20 only three times all season. He scored more than 30 nine times. He scored 40 twice. In two loser-out games at the end of the season, he combined for 75 points.
