Whatcom Hoops Boys Top 30: #9 Nolan Wright

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.


Nolan Wright, sophomore, Sehome

WHY HE’S #9: There was no fiercer competitor in the league than Wright, who even as a sophomore took the leadership reins for the inexperienced Mariners. The 5-foot-10 point guard led Sehome with 11.3 points and nearly 5 assists a game and despite his size was one of the top rebounding guards in the league averaging more than 5 boards a game. Toss in his aggressive defense and it was no wonder the Northwest Conference coaches voted him to the all-league second team.

COACH BRAD JACKSON: “Nolan was very consistent and in my opinion, was one of the better point guards in our league. He shouldered virtually all of the ball-handling duties, drew the toughest backcourt defensive assignment, all while leading Sehome in scoring and assists. He is a true QB leader.”
