Dalton Knight, Warrenton
In a four-game stretch, Warrenton’s senior guard has been a 3-point scoring machine. Knight had seven 3-pointers and a 23-point night in a loss at Clatskanie, followed by five 3-pointers in a win over Willamina. He was still hot Saturday, when he drained six treys for 33 of Warrenton’s 43 points in a win over Taft. Knight opened this week with seven 3-pointers in a nonleague win over Southridge, B.C. That’s 25 3-pointers in four games.
