Keaton Bankofier All-Star Series MVP
Clackamas High School 2014 graduate Keaton Bankofier starred for the Metro All-Stars during the recent Oregon Athletic Coaches Association Metro/State 6A/5A All-Star Boys Basketball Series, played June 13-14 at Eugenes Northwest Christian University and at Sprague High School.
Bankofier was named the Metro Stars most valuable player for the tournament.
He scored 25 points on 12-for-19 shooting, claimed eight rebounds, rejected two shots and made two assists in the opener, a 94-89 loss.
And he went all out to help Metro even the series in the second game, hitting eight 3-point baskets, scoring 35 points and hauling down 10 rebounds in an 118-86 Metro All-Star victory.
For the tournament, Bankofier scored the most points of any player on either the State or the Metro all-star team.
A 6-7 forward, during the past high school season Bankofier averaged 14 points as the Cavaliers went 22-6 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2014 Class 6A State Tournament. He was a first-team all-league selection in the Three Rivers League.
We are so glad to have Keaton join our program, said Warner Pacific head coach Jared Valentine. Ive been impressed with his intelligence and poise on the court. His combination of size and skill will allow him to thrive in our conference and make us a better team from day one.
