Two prep players headed to MPC?

Forgot to note this yesterday:
* Stephen Dorsey, senior, Monterey: The 6-4 Dorsey is one of only two repeaters to our All-County team, Noah Allen being the other.

Dorsey put his leaping ability to work on both ends of the court. He averaged 12.5 points per game in the MBL to go along with 10.5 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game.

"He was the centerpiece of our team," Monterey coach Gregg Daniels said. "He controlled the paint. Even when he was scoring 11 or 12 points per game, he was getting 12 to 15 rebounds and making five or six blocks.

"And when he wasn't making blocks he was forcing kids into trying some crazy shots. Sometimes it seemed like he was on a trampoline the way he skied above everyone."

As Daniels said last year about Dorsey, "I don't think I've ever coached a kid who could jump like that before."

Look for Dorsey to be playing basketball for Monterey Peninsula College next year.
* Brandon Hanson, senior, Monterey: The 6-foot Hanson, who comes from a military family, transferred to Monterey just in time.

He played a key role in helping the Toreadores finish with the best overall record of any team between Monterey and Santa Cruz counties at 22-4.

A strong contender for Monterey Bay League MVP honors, Hanson averaged 17.2 points per game overall and 19.8 per game in the MBL.

He also averaged with 3.5 assists and three steals per game.

Hanson said he'll probably play for MPC next year.

"He played so darn hard all the time," Daniels said. "He could rebound and go coast-to-coast. He was tenacious on both ends of the court. At time he was like instant offense. He could press teams and get five to six steals. His anticipation was real good."
