FINAL Boys BB All-State Nominations

Malik Khouzam of Walnut inspired many in Southern California for how he played in the aftermath of the death of his older sister, Kayla, from a car accident in December. Playing for his dad, Joe, Malik became Walnut High’s all-time scoring leader.

This is an updated list of all-state nominees from the first list we did just before the CIF state championships in Sacramento. This is the one we’ll use to begin selecting all of the honorees for the 44th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams. The first teams for juniors, sophomores and freshmen (not recruiting lists) will be done first. Info on all players will continue to be collected until the moment the actual teams get posted and it is still not too late to send in a nomination.
