Six Katy ISD athletes were recognized earlier this month by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches as All-Region selections for the 2019-20 season.

Katy ISD competes in Region III for basketball.

Katy High senior wing Allana Thompson and Tompkins freshman guard Loghan Johnson were honored. Johnson helped lead the Falcons to their first undefeated district championship. Thompson, a Prairie View A&M signee, averaged 19 points and eight rebounds in helping lead the Tigers to a playoff berth.

Katy ISD had four boys named to the all-region team.

Morton Ranch senior guard L.J. Cryer was selected after posting one of the best seasons in Texas high school basketball history, averaging 34.2 points, 5.3 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game. Cryer shot 55 percent overall, including 44 percent from 3-point range.

Cryer’s backcourt teammate, senior Westley Sellers, was also named to the team. Sellers averaged 9.5 points, 6.3 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 steals per game.

Cryer and Sellers were essential in leading the Mavericks to a second straight undefeated district championship and the first regional semifinal appearance in program history.

Mayde Creek senior guard Rommell Williams, a Midwestern State signee, was also selected after averaging 20.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists in leading the Rams to a second straight playoff berth, and just the sixth postseason appearance in the program’s history.

Taylor junior guard Jake Arnold, blossoming into one of the premier recruits in the Class of 2021, was honored for his outstanding season. Arnold averaged 23.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.9 steals for the Mustangs. He shot 51 percent from the field.
