AURORA, Colo. — A handful of Wyoming high school basketball players have been selected and invited to the first Centennial State Grandstand in Aurora, Colo.

The event starts today and goes through June 30.

Hunter Meeks and Braeden Walk of Mountain View High School made the invitation list. They are two of the nine Wyoming players invited to play at the first Centennial State Grandstand.

According to WyoPreps, “Players must be nominated by a school’s head coach, be a legitimate college prospect, and then they are selected by a governing committee, who extends an invite.”

Meeks and Walk will have the opportunity to join 168 other players from Wyoming, California, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota and Texas. The event will feature drills and live play in front of college coaches.

Meeks finished in the top 10 in the West Conference for blocked shots averaging 0.7 blocked shots per game for the Buffaloes.

As for Walk, he was in the top five in the West Conference for scoring for Mountain View in the 2018-19 season with 14.8 points per game.

As the season ended, head coach Dustin Rees looked to the future with this comment, :our varsity team finished with a 12-11 overall record, which is the first time since 2009 that Mountain View boys basketball finished with a winning record.”

Both Walk and Meeks will be on the team when the Buffs are back in action next year.
