Salesian Basketball wrapped up their season over a month ago but the accolades still come pouring in. Seniors Jaden and JoVon McClanahan and Angel Jackson were all recognized by Sports Stars Magazine as All Nor-Cal players. With all of them moving on next year they will be sorely missed and very tough to replace, but they will be leaving both the Boy's and Girls Basketball programs in better places than they found them. A feat that is tough to accomplish here at Salesian.
2019 ALL-NORCAL BOYS BASKETBALL TEAMS
JADEN MCCLANAHAN | Guard | Salesian-Richmond | 5-11 | Sr.
Along with his twin brother, a second-teamer by the narrowest margin, McClanahan made everything go for a Pride team that won its first 31 games and finished nationally ranked. Jaden averaged 12 points a game; his on-ball defense (2.7 steals a game) was second to none.
JOVON MCCLANAHAN (Salesian-Richmond) | Guard | 5-11 | Sr.: Just like his twin, McClanahan was an elite defender for the Pride. But he was also the top facilitator. He averaged 3.7 assists to go with his 10.8 points per game.
2019 ALL-NORCAL GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAMS
ANGEL JACKSON | Post | Salesian-Richmond | 6-4 | Sr.
Jackson, who will play for USC next year, capped a great career with a trip to the McDonald’s All-American Game. She also led her team to the NorCal Open finals. Jackson steadily improved throughout her time in high school, and though always an outstanding defender and shotblocker, she added range to her jumper and a deft touch to her passing by the time she graduated.
We wish these three tremendous luck in the remainder of their senior years academically and many blessings moving forward down the amazing path's they've paved for themselves. GO PRIDE!
