NMPreps - With under 70-Days until the first day of basketball we take a look at the NMPreps.com New Mexico Basketball All-State Teams. We will look at each classification and ending with Division All-State Teams as well.
FIRST TEAM ALL-STATE
David Lopez, Dexter (Senior/Guard): The Dexter Demons return just about everyone from the team that reached the 2A State Championship last season. David Lopez is the captain that makes this race go for the Demons and has a nice jumper from 15-feet out that makes him a dangerous player.
Miguel Reyna, Texico (Senior/Forward): Reyna, has been on the scene as a three-year letterman for the Wolverines and will be a clear favorite for the 2A Player of the Year. A double-double type of player has been the only Small School Division player to get ranked in the NMPreps.com Top 100 Player Rankings for two consecutive seasons.
Dakota Montoya, Clayton (Senior/Forward) : A big that will control the paint once again this season and look to lead Clayton deep into the playoffs. The big question mark here is who is the new coach in Clayton to help Montoya take the team into the playoffs? Either way he has the tools to make for a success campaign this season.
Ryan Arkie, Laguna-Acoma (Junior/Forward): Most people may not know his name but Arkie was a crucial player for the 2A State Champion Hawks last season. An on the block type of player that basically owned anything near the paint and put in those buckets in needed moments.
Jeff Adler, Mesilla Valley Christian (Junior/Guard) : New head coach Jeremy Ramon didn't have to look far for his team identity as Adler, son of former MVC coach Terry Adler, is already gaining regional recognition for his play. You can expect him to have the Sonblazers competing for the 2A title this season.
SECOND TEAM ALL-STATE
Kyle Bonner another guard for the Demons that at moments seemed to get to the paint without any problem. Super quick and one of the top ball handlers in the state along with a fierce defender. Kendall Naceanceno is slightly unknown in the class but produce big number last season and will see his production rise as the Wolverines could be in-store for a special type of season.
Not given much attention, DJ Casados is everything a head coach would want for a floor general - especially if he is under the same roof in the gym and at home. Isaac Velasquez is one of a pair of players that will look to put Santa Rosa back among the Final Four and possible title contenders this season after a few seasons that they fell short.
Augustus Cuch is another Hawk that played second fiddle to two of Laguna's all-time most talented players. Well the duo of Cuch and Arkie create a thriller one-two punch.
