Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #18 Noah Tavis

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.


Noah Tavis, senior, Blaine

WHY HE’S #18: The only returning starter from Blaine’s 2023 state team, Tavis was the inexperienced Borderites’ leader. The 6-foot-3 forward could shoot the 3 as well as drive to the rim and would average 10.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists a game.

COACH NATE SULLIVAN: “Noah has a relentless work ethic. He always plays as hard as he can. As a coach, you always knew what you would get out of him.”
