Postseason accolades are now coming from the national level for the Mid-Columbia's top boys and girls basketball players.
Richland High School's Riley Sorn and Kamiakin High School's Oumou Toure each earned second team nods on USA Today's All-USA Washington basketball squads, which were released Monday.
Unlike the Associated Press All-State teams — to which Sorn and Toure were each named — the All-USA state teams comprise all classifications. So the selections are for the top 10 ballers in each state, regardless of what school they attend.
Sorn, a 7-foot-4 senior center, averaged 16 points, nearly eight rebounds and four blocks per game this season. In addition to being named to the AP All-State team, he was also the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association's 4A State, Herald All-Area and All-MCC Player of the Year.
Toure, a junior guard/forward, earned All-Area and All-MCC Player of the Year honors as well, totaling 24.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. The Braves finished 23-3 and took fourth at the state tournament, their third straight state placement.
Future Pac-12 players took home the top prizes on the All-USA Washington teams, as Rainier Beach's Kevin Porter Jr. (a USC commit) and Central Valley's Lexie Hull (Stanford) were named the Players of the Year. Gonzaga Prep boys coach Matty McIntyre and Central Valley girls coach Freddie Rehkow were named the Coaches of the Year.
