Hot Springs Boys
The Hot Springs Trojans enter this season as one of the favorites in the 5A conference and are currently ranked 5th in the overall rankings for ARHoops. The Trojans are a very athletic bunch who are led by shooting guard Exavian Christon. Christon already committed to Louisiana Tech over offers from Arkansas State, UAB, and UALR to name a few.
Exavian Christon averaged double digit scoring this summer in the EYBL circuit. Over 25% (126 players) of the NBA players last season were EYBL alumni and that number is climbing each year since the EYBL is relatively new. He is one of the best players in the state and will have a shot at grabbing some serious awards before his senior campaign is over. Paris Harris is another good player for Hot Springs. The small forward is incredibly athletic and will most likely be averaging a double-double this season as he can score and rebound.
