"Brock Ravet inching closer to the top of all-time scoring leader list"

Kittitas’ Brock Ravet just keeps getting closer and closer.

After starting in seventh place on the high school boys all-time scoring leaders in the state, Ravet now sits in third with a career 2,443 points.

Jeremy Groth sits in second on the list from Curlew High School (2000), but Ravet needs just five more points to pass Groth.

That means Ravet will have the rest of the season to catch Central Washington University’s own, Lance Den Boer. He has notched a career 2,851 points at Sunnyside Christian High School (2003).

Den Boer started at Washington State University but transferred to CWU after he learned Dick Bennett was taking over the program.

Ravet has been a four-year starter, leading ‘Yotes to back-to-back 2B state titles. This season, Ravet has notched 182 points in eight games, averaging about 22.8 per contest.

Copied from Anton Watson's thread:
From the News Tribune, "PRESEASON ALL-STATE BOYS BASKETBALL" (https://www.thenewstribune.com/sports/high-school/article223423675.html)

Zags have two!


Brock Ravet, Kittitas

Guard, 6-1, sr.

Reigning 2B state player of the year, and two-time state champion, is headed to Gonzaga — one of the top Division I programs in the country — after he wraps up his senior season. Four-star prospect is averaging 23.8 points per game, and has already nailed 40 3-pointers. Was named Washington’s Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior.


Anton Watson, Gonzaga Prep

Forward, 6-8, sr.

Was one of the most electrifying players in the Tacoma Dome as a junior, and paced Gonzaga Prep to a title win over Federal Way. Gonzaga signee is a four-star recruit, a top-50 recruit nationally in the 2019 class, and the reigning 4A state player of the year. Has a dominating presence on the court, and is averaging 25.3 points per game.

The nice thing is that he steps onto campus with 0s across the board, and his will and talent will determine what he’ll do as a Zag! He’ll probably get a lot of minutes right out of the gate with Perkins and Geno not on the roster. I’m hoping he proves you wrong!

So these don't count?

Brock has been a four-year starter for Kittitas and recently was awarded the 2017 Gatorade Player of the Year for his sterling junior season. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound guard averaged 31.0 points a game, 8.8 rebounds and 9.0 assists. He was also 2B Player of the Year in the 2016-17 season along with his two Eastern Washington Athletic Conference (EWAC) MVPs.

I don't see where the 2017 Gatorade Player of the year was for 2B

If he comes anywhere close to those stats, he will own ALL the GU guard records.

High School stats don't necessarily translate to D1 College basketball.

Silas Melson had a pretty good resume as far as scoring in HS. Scored 40 in All Star game at the end of his prep run. I absolutely love the defense Silas brought to the Zags. Never reached the offensive hype he came in with.

Brock will not be what Silas was as far as defense. So, hopefully his offense translates.

The Ridnour suggestion puts an unfair expectation on Brock imo. Rid was really fast/quick in addition to his exceptional skills; in addition to being in the MCDAA game he was an early entry lottery pick after his junior year at UO. Think he was conference POY in a pretty strong pac, though memory is hazy on that.

I'm in the camp that says he could be mentioned in the same realm as Pangos when he's done, and maybe has a shot at being another Dickau, albeit that's a long shot. But those player of the year awards are subjective. No one would put Ravet in the same category as the top 3 players in the state last year: Kevin Porter of Rainier Beach/USE, Jaden McDaniels of Fed Way, Watson. The first two are likely one and done lottery picks.

You are probably right (you often are) but my point was...after a 4 year time at Gonzaga, he COULD hold many of the guard records. I'm not saying he will, but also not foolish enough to say they are all out of his reach.

Sorry. Wasn't criticizing your post, and I probably misinterpreted Will's intent a bit in my response. Just saying Ridnour was on another level in response to gatorade poy comment. Comments in response to comments in response to comments tend to create some drift from the original idea. I agree, bios are pretty similar. Bob Ridnour used to drive Luke down from Blaine 3 times a week in the summer to scrimmage/play pickup when he wasn't doing AAU, so yeah, lots of similarity in that regard.

Rid is one of my all time favorites, and I'm hoping Brock joins that group.

Glad to see so much discussion about Ravet. What is interesting about transferable skills from high school is is not shooting. If you're a good shooter you should be a good shooter in college (if you have confidence). IMO Ravet has a ton of confidence. It doesn't hurt Ravet at all, imo, to play for Kittitas. He plays on an elite basketball team in the summer and plays against the best basketball players in the country. The reason I compared Ravet to Ridnour was comparing him to Ridnour's ability to control a basketball game. Brock has all the skills any point guard needs to have control of a game. I would never compare Ravet to Melson. They play different positions and have different skills. Brock can really handle the basketball. He can dribble and pass like to other player I've seen in high school. For this reason I think he is very comparable to Perkins, whom I think can really handle the ball and control a game. He has excellent vision of the court and knows how to get the ball to open men. Brock also can shoot from the outside as well as Perkins.

The comparison to Pangos is also excellent because both are about the same size.

Go GU!!!

So Brock is a PG who could take over for Perkins next year? Do we expect him to start next year? ..or share time with Ayayi and Foster? If I remember Few usually doesn't like PG by committee so one of them will probably step up and take the reins for most of the minutes with the other 2 backing up...

It's always difficult to know how a small school kid will do on a large D1 stage. I do believe Brock's got the HS skills to do well somewhere in college. It seems the Zags are moving up with harder schedules and a league on the rise. DO I think he's a game ready as Pangos was? No .but few are. I hope he's got the goods right away. Big adjustment though. I do know the whole board will be hoping he's a killer. He's very coachable and willing to learn from what I can hear from the occasional breakfast I have with some of the staff. Here's hoping for the best. The college game has shifted to a high speed transitional game. Brock's got the shooting down. Passes well too. How he does in a faster environment is unknown right now. He's down very well in the AAU circuit though......but that's HS kids. From what I can tell, he'll keep up and should develop very well in Few's system.

Markburn1
12-24-2018, 01:04 PM
The Melson mention was to point out that statistics from high school are rarely transferable at the same rates. Brock is not going to average thirty ppg with nine rebounds and nine assists. If he approaches half of that , we’ll all be singing his praises more than coach k gets massaged by Vitale. Expecting Brock to set Zags all time records before he finishes high school is way overboard.

Good comment.

It's always a little unfair to kids to put any sort of expectations on them having to do with a former player, not the least bc everyone is an individual and unique, will bring their own unique mix.

And having said that, if he can perform whatever his skills are, at a level even close to the level that Pangos and Bell came in as frosh (I realize Bell played a different position), we'll be so far ahead of where fear we might be regarding PG next year.

I think even we fail to truly appreciate just how amazing it was to have two frosh guards step on the court basically from game one at the level they did.

How fast is Brock? How quick is he? (Which is different.) How is his lateral speed? Do we have any objective measure of his speed?

Ravet is smart, crafty, hard nosed. All the cliches of a player lacking speed but they are accurate with him.

His scouting report is straight forward and to the point. There is a reason Rivals and 247 keep him ranked between 100-150. He has gone up and down, yet one thing holding him back...

Defense. He tries but gets blown by one on one, even at the 1A level. Lacking lateral footspeed, and sags off his man most of the time. Has no choice.

Brock will do just fine shooting, scoring, and using his patented cross over step back jump shot. Although, this move is often telegraphed and being scouted/defended a tad better this year. Its mostly 'unguardable', and a 'next lvl' move he has perfected.

He has excellent handles, aggressive, creative, and just tough minded on offense. A very good shooter but not elite level. Players like Pangos shot 50-55% from 3pt in HS, Brock sticks around 40%. I think he takes more difficult shots than a player like Pangos did, but similar style. Brock plays "bigger" on offense even though he is just 6'1". Pangos a much better defender at the same level. Night and day.

I fully expect Brock to play from Day 1. Too good of a scorer/shooter not to, yet not sure he will play full time given his woes on defense.

I compare him to Corey Kispert in style. Brock goes non stop, can score, pushes the ball, is offensively gifted, and will work his tail off on the court, but can't really defend anyone. Now, Brock won't be asked to defend as hard of mismatches as Kispert needs to, but would consider their strengths and limitations very similar.

247 posts a concise scouting report on Brock.

They talk about his solid frame, combo guard game, smart play, & savvy style on the court. Has wiggle and a couple elite moves. He is tough to defend but also not going to stop anyone which could hold him back some.

Brock will become a star in many ways at Gonzaga but will be hard to employ him for 30 mins a game unless we hide him on defense.

No one likes this comparison/projection, as I've posted it many of times, but he reminds me of Gerry McNamara from Syracuse. He just fights for offense, is unflappable, can hit shots from anywhere and anyway possible, yet 'Cuse zone helped cover up his defense issues. Same size, mindset, game, etc.

this is what worries me...he's likely not going to be a volume guy at gonzaga with the diversity of weapons and the difficulty he'll likely have creating his own shot, so consistency is very important. if his shot isn't going down, is he good enough to impact the game in other ways and get playing time? i'm beginning to feel a little like that with regards to kispert...if he's not hitting threes, he becomes a liability.

can Ravet dunk?


“He was starting to be able to dunk, not that dunking matters, and he could play athletically a little faster and stronger,” Tim Ravet said. “That went backwards for a week or two when he got sick, but he’s definitely stronger, shooting the ball well from pretty deep and handling the ball and making people double-team him.”

From early in his junior high school year. (http://www.swxrightnow.com/stories/2018/jan/02/gonzagas-2018-2019-recruits-start-off-prep-seasons/)

I've watched him play a bunch of times now. And he is no Ridnour or Pangos. I think a good Zag to compare him to would be Stepp. But he's shorter and a heavier than Stepp. He is an excellent rebounder, decent 3 point shooter, good passer, is physical driving and creates space with his strength to create shots but he is a terrible defender. He can't guard at the 2B level which is scary to me for a guy headed to Gonzaga. I think a career similar to Stepp's is his ceiling. But I think something closer to David Stockton is more likely. I like him. But he is a backup PG most likely. He would be someone that 10 years ago I would have been excited to see Gonzaga get.

I never worried once with the ball in Blake Stepp's hands... Like DD said if his knees were good he would have played at least 10 years in the NBA... a consummate floor general and Zag.... if Ravet is like Stepp that is huge for GU...

Based on your comments alone, I don't think you know who Blake Stepp is or what he represented for the Gonzaga Basketball Program. Mark Few on more than one occasion referred to Stepp as the best player ever in the program. Those statement are a little dated and don't include some of the more current guys, but that is high praise.

He was WCC player of the year twice and I think at least one of those years didn't practice at all, just played in games due to chronic knee issues. He was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the second round and was considered a shoo in to make the roster but because of the those knee issues, he ultimately had to give up playing.

Stepp was a great, great player and if he were magically available to play now and had eligibility, Mark Few would have a difficult decision because he would have to bench Norvelle or Perkins to make room for him in the starting line up.

I said I think he will be more like Stockton. Meaning if I was gonna bet I would bet on him being more like David Stockton.

As far as how great Stepp is he was a really good player for the Zags (still pissed about the bunny he missed against AZ). I wouldn't put him as the best as someone said that Few said he was. But i'll bet you most coaches favorites would be a lot different than a fans.

I understand what you are saying AND that is your opinion RIGHT or WRONG...others have a different opinion and that doesn't make them anymore correct then yours...

I have not seen this young man play and look forward to him joining the team this summer and hopefully hearing reports on how he is fitting into the flow.

I hope you are correct in your assumption of Ravet, because Stepp was GREAT!

I know from reading posts about him he is around 6' so his size isn't optimum but evidently Coach Few and the staff believe he will be an excellent Zag...

Figured I'd put this here where it would get seen a bit before being moved.

Only chance to see Brock in person, and I came away impressed. I've seen most of (counted 15) the regional recruits in person at least once in their hs careers, and I was pretty impressed, at least on the offensive end of the floor. Defense, well, I'll defer to Raise's comments.

Kentlake is a middling SPSL team, but imo they do play in the second best league in the state after the metro, a bit ahead of the GSL and the Vancouver area league. Had a couple of listed 6'4 kids as their biggest starters; fair athleticism, but basically a run of the mill 4a team. Game was even through a quarter and a half, then Kittitas went on a run the last 3 or 4 min to get a dbl digit lead at halftime.

Kittitas didn't list a starter over 6'1, but they were probably a bit more honest on their heights. Ravet was only an inch or 2 shorter than the kids Kent listed at 6'4, and he played inside on D. Maybe a questionable on-ball defender at this point for the high major level, as others have said. But the 13 rebounds playing pg says he positions and anticipates well, and competes hard on the glass for a team that needs him to do that. IMO that alone made any Jesse Wade comps moot; no way Wade guards those guys or gets more than a half dozen boards in that game, plus I never saw Wade handle or pass anything like what I saw yesterday.

Best handles I've seen in a GU guard recruit; seems far faster w/ the ball than without it; really shifty and elusive. Tremendous vision; threads the needle like Perk to an open teammate underneath, and will hit a streaking teammate w/ a three quarter court pass over retreating defenders in stride. REborn's comments on his passing are spot on imo. I thought he threw a half dozen passes worthy of Magic; a bit of hyperbole in that statement, but not much. Of course, w/ the caveat that he's doing it v modest hs talent, and there's no way to tell how that will translate to D1. But could easily have had dbl digit assists in this game.

And as Raise has said, that stepback 3 is lethal and unguardable; as good as the one Jeremiah Dominguez used v the Zags, quick and on balance. I can't see Few telling him not to use it; imo it is better already than Norvell's stepback move, which I don't like and a shot Norvell seems to miss a lot. But if Few lets NOrvell use it, I can't see him telling Ravet not to until he misses it a bunch. It's integral, imo, in setting up his drives and dishes. On this level he's pretty good at driving to the basket, but no way to tell how that will translate until seeing him do it with some 6'10 guys in the middle.

Kittitas was one of the better coached hs teams I've seen; reminded me a bit of G Prep in that regard. Looked like it was gonna be a fairly even game for the first 12 minutes, and then K just started blitzing them. A lot of that was due to Ravet finding open guys and moving the ball quickly, even if it didn't always lead to him getting an assist.

Personally, I think he's better than Raivio when I saw Raivio in hs, Far, far better than Melson offensively, though obviously not on defense. I'd take him overall v Melson out of hs. Not as good overall as Bell, who was a huge scorer in hs as well as top notch defender. But better both as a 1 on 1 scorer, and as a passer. Best passing recruit I've seen, only one who compares is Perk as a passer.

Defense could be the thing that keeps him from getting early minutes, I don't have the expertise to say. I do agree w/ the post that Stepp is his ceiling, if you consider Stepp the equal of Dickau. But I saw Dickau in person about a dozen times his fr year at UW, when Bender said defense was what kept him off the floor most of the year. (Big mistake on Bender's part, which he corrected the last third of the season and got to the sweet 16 largely as a result).

But the idea of Stockton being his floor is a mile off base imo, if we're talking about Stocton as a Zag. Stockton as a pro, maybe; haven't seen him there. I'd say he should be as good as Raivio or Pangos offensively. Defense, I have no idea if that will be his achilles, but he's so good offensively that Few et al are willing to take the risk. And I'm no expert so I'll go with that.

McClung Shoots 28% from 3 and 41% overall while averaging a whopping 1.7 assists per game in 25mpg. I`m glad your impressed by his 38 point game but these numbers would not cut it at Gonzaga. Georgetown is garbage and have no choice but to play McClung due to their lack of guard depth.

I remember seeing a very good 6' 5" inch player try to guard Ravet. I'm telling you that this 6' 5" player could play D, and he was no match at all for Ravet who scored 30. As I've said before, what impressed me the most about Brock is his passing and ball handling. I believe he will start at GU as a freshman. One thing that hasn't been said, or not much anyway, is how intelligent he is. His dad is a coach and has transferred his knowledge of the game to Brock. I would put intelligence right at the top of his game.

Brock 's done well at every level. What's key for me is that he's continued to work his rear end off to get better. I really don't care if he's 6 ft 1 in. What matters is that he is getting better in all categories and he's producing. I'm thinking Few didn't sign him for nothing. Probably many of us wish we had Brock's determination. Probably will shoot the lights out for us.

Brock 's well at every level. What's key for me is that he's continued to work his rear end off to get better. I really don't care if he's 6 ft 1 in. What matters is that he is getting better in all categories and he's producing. I'm thinking Few didn't sign him for nothing. Probably many of us wish we had Brock's determination. Probably will shoot the lights out for us.

Know it is rare... but have to agree with you on this Abe.

Withers' report nailed it; more complete w/ better detail than mine, and spot on imo. Of course, you'd expect that from a pro.

One thing I left out, mentioned by Bud, is the first qtr turnovers. He threw a couple of 3/4 court passes over the top that were picked. As Bud mentioned, and I thought at the time, this was due to the fact that he's been getting away w/ those passes v class B players. After those two, he threw over the top a couple more times w/ success; you could see he made the adjustment. As did his team; w/ the game about tied in the low/mid 20's, Kittitas went on about a 40-10 run to go up 30.

Another thing in Bud's story was the athleticism issue; he definitely has to do work there for the high major level on the defensive end. But I saw all 4 Mead games at the state tourney Adam's sr year, (went the first day to check him out; it's the only time I've gone down to Tacoma all 4 days) and said then he belonged in the McDonalds game; he was imo a shade better than MCDAA/ future 1st rounder Aaron Brooks of Franklin/UO in that tourney. And I saw all of Dickau's fr/soph home games at UW; bought a season ticket because of DD.

Watching Ravet on offense, I got the same feeling of excitement I got the first time I saw those two guys play. Doesn't always pan out that way, but I'm saying there is a chance. And if he can work on his fast twitch (a legit, but imo the only, area of any concern) just enough to not be a total liability on the defensive end, I'll go out on the limb w/ Reborn and say he'll start at pg next year if there isn't a high level grad trans in the wings.

Iíve seen him three times now, two times last year and once this year.

Man his shot is pure. Itís as automatic as Ravio and can get it off more often. His passing is upper level and he has a killer floater. He has a high basketball IQ and will get that step back off. I would like to see more pick and pop from his team but not his fault. Really hard to gauge his defense at the 2b level and none of the opponents Iíve seen were anything special.

He reminds me more of Stepp (coach type demeanor) than DDD, although I never saw either of those 2 in HS. Iím excited to see this kid at the D1 level.

If you think Ayayi is 6-5 you might want to have your eyes tested. Ravet is already better than Ayayi and will be ahead of Ayayi on the depth chart next year. Ayayi has shown nothing this year.

So, since Jesse Wade was a similar sized player from relatively less competitive league in HS, they are the same player? I can watch video and see that Ravet is a better athlete in general and a better player. I also wonder how much a 2yr layoff and shoulder injury affected Jesse in his lone season at GU. I know you are negative in general, just getting a feel for what Jesse Wade has to do with Brock Ravet?

I will say this about Brock, he has a lot of offensive skill and talent, but the size is a concern and the defensive is a question mark. I doubt Brock starts as a freshman, I hope I am wrong, but all indications are GU is pushing to land Harvey to play the point next year and I am hearing that very easily could happen. Why would the staff be pushing so hard for a starting PG if they see Brock as a day 1 starting PG?

Can "shorter" guards make it in D1.
Interesting discussion on TSSF about whether Ravet's height has anything to do with his future success. Mike Sequim is pretty strong in his opinion it is "ignorant" to judge a player's height against his potential success. See John Stockton. Of course the high school vs. D1 issue comes up too. But Auburn has a PG Harper I think who is dynamite and his last second lay-in rimmed out to almost beat Kentucky. Then the guard from Purdue is a "little" guy who also dynamite. So I would like to see some video or Paul Pennington at GU who is a walk on from Idaho school (I think someone said 5-10 or so) but was all world in highschool and may have won a state title or two. I'm not unhappy with our guards or recruits but still would like to see Pennington's skills. Anyone watch him in practice at GU?

KITTITAS — In a word: Finally. After 11 days off between games due to Mother Nature’s wrath, Kittitas took to the hardwood and dominated much of the district quarterfinal game, taking an 80-41 victory over White Swan on Wednesday afternoon in Kittitas.

Aside from an early 2-2 tie, top-ranked Kittitas easily handled much of the contest against the Cougars. While the game was never in doubt, Kittitas certainly struggled a bit.

The win propels the Coyotes into the district semifinals against Brewster on Friday night in Chelan.

Kittitas methodically extended its 43-18 halftime lead further as the third period progressed, led by the scoring of Arreola, Harris and Ravet. Arreola and Harris led all scorers with 23 points. Ravet finished with 20.

You just have to guess at most of the starting times on SWX and on ROOT during the tournaments. The games run early and late, depending on whatever happens. It looks like all of Ravet’s game could possibly be seen, but you can’t rely on coverage until the final. SWX likes to cover the girl’s games and give as many schools as possible some attention.

The 2B Boy’s Final is scheduled on SWX, Saturday, March 1st at 9:00 pm.

The 4A Boy’s Final games is televised on Saturday, March 1st at 9:00 pm on ROOT. You can’t count on exact times for the 3A and 4A Finals either.

I need to dig a little deeper to find out if we get to see any 2A games. I doubt whether we will get to see a Cashmere game since their team is so young.

It's because the #2 seed lost in the prior round and were sent to the loser out bracket.

Looks like Kittitas' game will be broadcast at 10:30 AM tomorrow on SWX #112. I've got my DVR set to record the game.

Ryan was a walk-on though. For a kid earning a scholarship straight outta HS Brock has to be from the smallest school. Followed by Pendo and Gebbers from Brewster.

I believe you are correct rennis, but I didn't read the question as being framed that way. No matter.

And pretty sure Gebbers was a walk on as well.

Was Colin also a walk-on? I thought I remembered him being on scholarship.

Something tells me the doubters are going to be wrong about Ravet. I think they are probably correct that he will have some troubles on defense, but maybe not as severe as feared. I'm going to predict he starts for a successfull Gonzaga team in 19-20!!

Not only that, I'm going to predict that he will convert most doubters to supporters by the end of the season and there will be some controversy about how minutes are distributed for the guard positions during the 20-21 season. Few as usual will simply play 2 PG's!!:)

A friend of mine is going to watch Ravet's game this evening and I told him I expected a full report. I'll get back to you with that when I can.

Hopefully we can get updates. This might be their toughest game.

Well the coaches have great confidence in him....my only concern is the level of competition he has played against.... really...you and I and your boys could beat some of those teams....

I have the same concerns about competition. With that said, he played on the AAU circuit against tough competition and excelled.

Well, I am a pretty nifty passer and Brady can knock down the open jumper :D

You might be right about that. I think he was on a baseball scholarship and walked on to the bball squad

I believe you are correct. I had forgotten about that. Listed on the GU roster in the year 2000 only; that's a long look back for this old fart.

I watched the Saint George’s semifinal against Life Christian. Life Christian has an outstanding sophomore, Omari Mualana, who seemed worn out toward the end of the game and still managed to make an incredible 3 pointer. I honestly thought SG was going to lose, but they executed well at the end of the 4th quarter.
