SG Kevin Coble **
[6-8 175] Scottsdale Christian Academy, Phoenix, Ariz

We had heard from someone close to the program that Coble was lighting up his league down in Phoenix...This from the Arizona Republic February 3rd:
Scottsdale Christian fans shouted "We've got Coble," during much of Friday night's clash with Chandler Valley Christian.
But Scottsdale Christian lost, even though Coble had 36 of his teams 44 points!
"Kevin Coble is probably the best individual player we've ever played against," Valley Christian coach Greg Haagsma said. "When you have a guy of that kind of ability, you are never going to run away." [ Jeremy Cluff - Arizona Republic]
The report goes on to talk about the see-saw battle as Coble kept bringing his team back, but it wasn't enough. Scottsdale Christian fell to 18-5.

Scottsdale Christian bounced back to win two, they beat Phoenix Christian, 59-51 Wednesday - Coble had 25 points - then beat Arizona Lutheran 55-49 on Thursday - no box score so we don't know how Kevin did in the game.

Scottsdale Christian is the Metro #2 seed in the 2A tournament - next game is this Friday against St. Johns, the #2 North seed in the tournament.
