Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #14 Mantaj Singh

In an incredible season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops is ranking the top 30 boys. Each day we’ll feature an amazing player in our county and count down until we get to #1. So join us daily as we honor the best of the best.


Mantaj Singh, sophomore, Ferndale

WHY HE’S #14: Not even on the varsity roster to start last year, Singh has blossomed into one of the league’s best all-around players. Able to go inside or bomb from deep, the 6-foot-3 guard-forward averaged 14.3 points a game by shooting 54 percent from the field, including 40 percent from beyond the arc. He also average 5.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.4 steals for the Golden Eagles.

COACH LUKE DuCHESNE: “Mantaj stepped into a big role for us this year. He has a strong post-up game and can score with ease around the basket, and he also can pull up from 3 as he led our team in 3-point field goals. He is an efficient offensive player, and our staff and team are excited to watch his development as he becomes one of the best players in the NWC. He is a great teammate and is always looking to make the right play. He is awesome to be around, and I’m very glad I have two more years to coach him.”
