Most boys basketball teams in the state have played at least 10 games, which means we've unofficially reached the midpoint of the 2017-18 season. With that in mind, it's time to take a look at some of the statistical leaders in the state heading into the second half.
A trio players from small Milwaukee public schools lead the state in scoring thus far. Sophomore teammates Qwan Jackson and Johnny Wallace of Milwaukee Lifelong Learning are at the top of the list. Jackson is averaging 45 points per game, with seven games over 40 points and a high of 56. Wallace pours in 37.5 points per game for the Wizards, with a high of 53.
