Updated area high school basketball stats leaders (through Jan. 3)

In a matter of weeks, several area basketball players made significant strides in terms of their individual production.

The updated area stats leaders include new names at the top of the three categories on the boys side and two players at No. 1 for the girls. One of the biggest movers was St. James guard Jackson Hurston, who is now atop both the scoring and assist charts.

To be eligible for consideration, a player must have participated in 75 percent of his/her team’s games. All stats are provided to The Sun News by area coaches and cover games played through Saturday, Jan. 3.
