LOGAN — For the final week of basketball season, the Cache Valley Media Group Prep Players of the Week, Presented by McDonalds, happened to be the two players who took their respective teams the farthest in the 4A State Playoffs. Green Canyon guard Jared Anderson, whose Wolves made it to the semifinal round, and Ridgeline guard Emilee Skinner, who alongside her teammates, cut down the nets as back-to-back state champions.

Anderson averaged 19.0 points per game in Green Canyon’s three playoff games. He scored exactly 23 in back-to-back games, including nine threes on those contests, for the Wolves’ win over Ridgeline in the quarterfinal and then loss to eventual champion Layton Christian Academy in the semifinal.

Skinner scored at least 17 points in all four of Ridgeline’s playoff games en route to a second straight state title. She recorded a triple-double in the Riverhawks’ first playoff game against Crimson Cliffs, scoring 27 to go with 13 rebounds, 10 assists and seven steals. She had a double-double against Dixie with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

Other nominations for this week’s awards included Bryton Williams (Sky View boys) Kyver Jensen (Bear River boys), Jordan Child (Logan boys), Carson Cox (Ridgeline boys), Kaden Hess (Mountain Crest boys), Claire Fischer (Sky View girls), Madison Littlefield (Bear River girls), Marissa Best (Green Canyon girls) and Kali Jones (Mountain Crest girls).
