2020 All-O-Zone Boys Basketball Team

The All O-Zone Boys Basketball team as voted on by the KY3 & OzarksSportsZone.com staff has been released. There are more than 100 boys basketball teams in the area, which makes this list extremely difficult to narrow down to 20. Below are this year’s top 20 players in a first-team, second-team and honorable mention. Each team is in alphabetical order after the Player of the Year Aminu Mohammed.

First Team

Player of the Year: Aminu Mohammed – Greenwood

STATS: 34.8 ppg, 15.7 rpg
HONORS: Class 2 Player of the Year
Mohammed re-wrote the record books at both the Blue & Gold Tournament and Bass Pro Tournament of Champions this year. He led the Blue Jays to their first Blue & Gold Championship in 74 years of hosting the tournament. He set the single-game scoring record (49 points), tournament scoring record (155) and most field goals made in a Blue & Gold tournament record (57). In the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions, Mohammed helped Greenwood become just the second area team to win a game in the tournament since 2013. Against some of the nation’s best competition in one of the most storied high school basketball tournaments in the nation, Mohammed set the single game rebounding record (23) and tournament rebounding record (52). He also became just the fifth player in tournament history to score 100 combined points in three games at the T of C. His game-high 38 points against Christ the King in the fifth place game was the 12th-most points in a single game. The Blue Jays fell short of the Class 2 final four with a quarterfinal loss to eventual state champion Hartville, but Mohammed was unquestionably the most dominant player in southwest Missouri.
