This list is not intended to be comprehensive

Kjei Parker, Winter Haven 

Getting back to the RP Funding Center was going to need a strong efforts from some players and Parker stepped up to the plate. The guard scored 17 points in helping lead the Blue Devils past Newsome, 76-42 last week. Now, Winter Haven is in the Class 7A state semifinals. 

Cameron Boozer, Columbus

Is it ever a question that one of the Boozer twins isn't going to show up for the Explorers? Cameron was the leader this time around, scoring 22 points in leading Columbus past Doral Academy 69-29 in a Class 7A, Region 4 semifinal matchup. 

Dwayne Wimbley Jr., Westminster Academy 

Wimbley Jr. simply could not be stopped in the opening minutes of a region semifinal against Miami Country Day. The guard put on a masterpiece, scoring agame-high 32 points to lead the Lions past the Spartans. 

Cole White, Windermere 

One of the possibly considered 'upsets' of the boys basketball playoffs was Windermere upending Olympia, one of the state's top ranked clubs all year long. White scored 22 points and snagged nine boards in a Class 7A, Region 2 semifinal win last week against the Titans in a 66-51 win. 

Bryce Clayton, Barron Collier

When the Cougars needed the game-winner, Clayton was the go-to-guy they dialed up. Claytin hit a floater with 2.1 seconds to go, proving to be the go-ahead basket in a 57-55 win over Mariner in a Class 5A, Region 3 semifinal. 

Christian Cole, Tampa Catholic

The Crusaders hit on thirteen 3-pointers in a Class 3A, Region 3 semifinal against Gateway Charter. Cole hit on four of those, including three in a row without a miss in Tampa Catholic's 76-54 win against the Griffins. 

Ramone Seals, SLAM Tampa 

Reaching the Class 2A state semifinals is something only a handful of Tampa Bay area teams will be doing this week. The Spartans will be one of them thanks to Seals. The guard scored 21 points, grabbed seven boards and dished out six assists in a 65-36 over Canterbury in a Class 2A region final. 

Sam Ritchie, Ponte Vedra 

The Sharks are heading back to Lakeland and Ritchie led the way throughout. The 6-foot guard scored a team-high 23 points and led Ponte Vedra to a 72-61 victory over Gainesville in a Class 6A region final. 

Kalvin Gilbert, Providence School 

There never was really any doubt to if the Stallions would make the Final Four in Class 4A. It was more of how they were going to go about cutting down the nets en route. Gilbert scored 14 points to pace Providence in a 91-59 win over Bishop Kenny.
