About 70 miles south along Interstate 25, Cheyenne Mountain’s Ghassan Nehme has also been racking up points at a torrid pace. Since moving from shooting guard to point guard two weeks ago, the Montana State-bound senior is averaging 32.2 points over the six-game span since Jan. 14. This includes a 43-point performance against Lewis-Palmer on Jan. 17 and a 39-point game versus Vista Ridge on Jan. 28.
“When he gets going he’s very good,” Cheyenne Mountain coach J’on St. Clair said. “… With the ball in his hands, he’s a rhythm guy. He doesn’t have to be a catch-and-shoot guy.”
Cheyenne Mountain has a 4-2 record since the move.
On the year, Nehme is averaging 27 points, tops in Class 4A and second-best in all classifications. Collier is averaging 24.6, best in Class 5A and fifth overall. Akron’s Brady Baer is leading all scorers with an average of 31.1 points.
